This is a simple yet incredibly touching Holocaust memorial. When we visited on a cold afternoon in early October there was just one other person there making it a perfect place for quiet reflection about the enormity of this atrocity.

Gleis 17 (Track 17) at the Grunewald S-Bahn station is the site of 186 plaques erected along the train platforms, each plaque commemorating a date when Berlin Jews were shipped from Grunewald to ghettos and death camps. It is one of the most memorable Holocaust...More

One of the most moving holocaust I've seen exhibits anywhere. Very moving. The historical context and way in which Germany has acknowledged its role in this attrocity is evident from this and the other memorials nearby. An easy and worthwhile trip from central Berlin

This site is in more or less original state, and by it's simplicity and common form - we all know train stations, platforms and tracks - gives a visitor the shivers! Some flowers may be found there, in any corner, placed by an unknown visitor...and...More

Although tucked away and very understated, this location (which is part of Grunewald station) is a moving and powerful reminder of the terrible atrocities inflicted upon the Jews. The platform is lined with slabs engraved with each date and the number of Jews who were...More

What a powerful and moving memorial. I didn't really know what to expect but was moved to tears by what I read and especially as we witnessed a lady lay five white roses on the platform. A simple gesture which spoke volumes. An unforgettable experience...More
