This used to be a main railway station in Berlin. It was one of the stations used to deport Jews to concentration camps. It was badly damaged during WWII and finally totally closed in 1952. The remaining piece of the facade has been left as...More

We came across the remains of this railway station by chance and read the information board next to it. This is where around 9,600 Jews were deported in groups of 50 to 100 at a time using 116 trains. The Jews were taken away in...More

It was pretty neat to see it on our way to the technology museum. I would stop and see it if you do use this station

Found nothing about this landmark printed anywhere before my visit but very close to my hotel so visited and glad I did. Poignant story but could be better publicised.

all that remains of a great main station (which sadly was the departure point for many jews during the nazi reign) - it is even now still quite impressive - only worth it if you are in the area though.

A poignant reminder of past events in Berlin. Whilst little remains, it’s incredibly thought provoking.

Its hard to miss this building when you pass by the Anhalter station. It used to be station building, but now its a ruin of WW. There are no boards showing history at this place, but its really tragic when you know it.

Over the road from our hotel (Movenpick) is this impressive building a former Railway Station. In 1942, this passenger station became the main departure route for over 9,600 most elderly Jewish citizens, deported to the ghetto camp of Theresienstadt and then on to Auschwitz. A...More

Berlin's revolutionary heart and immigrant roots can
both be found in Kreuzberg, but this central
neighbourhood is beginning a new chapter. In the
1950s and '60s, Turkish guest workers settled around
Kottbusser Tor, while in the 1980s and '90s,
rambunctious squatters and artists gathered to live a
carefree life here. An old hospital even became a
hotspot of riots between squatters and police. Today
