Our guide took us to Gleis 17, which we had not known about. It was very touching to read the many markers on both sides of the railroad track, listing how many Jews were loaded on railroad cars and their destination. Of course not many...More

It took some ordinary people to recognise the significance of this place, and do something about it. Rather than detail my impressions, I'd just say that it's probably a good idea to go there with a guide, who could also take you to nearby Wannsee

No tourists and very quiet. Filled with mixed emotions looking at each panel and learn a number of people left from this very platform almost every day during the war time.

If you are in the station, stop by and remember. We were staying nearby and visited the memorial while traveling to and from the station. Nice place for reflection near the beautiful forest.

Our guide Jeremy took us here as our first stop - what a jew dropping site. Kudos to the German people for not hiding from their past

A remnant of the holocaust. A train platform with plates around the perimeter showing the numbers of jews and destination of the train. The precision of Hitlers extermination is chilling. Very powerful and very sad. A little harder to get too but far more meaningful...More
