The title is somewhat misleading - persons who love history will be amazed at the amount of information, photographs, artifacts from the Nazi era.

Mans inhumanity to man-everyone should visit this so the atrocities the Nazi's inflicted should never be forgotten

Surviving facade of Berlin Wall. Demonstrates post war effects on Germany and division of Germany. Nearest place after checkpoint Charlie. Move to Potsdamer platz after this

Really great museum and It's free! You get to see the wall while you're there. Make sure you have plenty of time. There is a lot of reading and information. Fascinating and sombering. Glad we stopped by. Bonus: clean, free restrooms.

The building sits on the site of the Secret Police & Security HQ of the Nazi regime. It is free entry and is a very comprehensive written and pictorial history - you could easily spend 3 hours here.

If you're going to Berlin you will, almost certainly, be constantly reminded the the partition. Not the best time in Germany's history but one which should, and must, not be forgotten.

The thoughtful exhibits here are arranged in an open floor plan, making it easier to visit some but not other portions with younger kids as an introduction to the very unsettling topics covered.

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

It was the rule of law in a one party authoritarian state, not a working democracy. If you read up on the rise of Hitler it was insidiously simple, through promising and in some ways providing succour to a population that... More
