This workshop employed Jews during WWII. The information panels explain the difficulties of the Jewish community during the war, and how Otto Weidt was able to help and save some of his employees. Quick visit, but well made little museum.

This Museum is really a hidden gem with a lot of Berlin history to offer. Wouldnt go there with my children, but if you are into it, this is good.

Little pearl I've found by chance. It's a few rooms museum with the story of Otto Weidt and some of the Jews he saved (or tried to) during WWII. Well presented, in both German and English.

You must hire Alex to take you on a bicycle tour. He will show you many many things that were not part of the traditional walking tour. A different side of Berlin. It was great.

I'm afraid I will haveto disappoint you. There's no press in this small museum. But lots of other remarkable things that make a visit worthwhile.
