I went here on September 29th as part of the Third Reich Tour with Original Berlin Walks and our tour Guide Finn mentioned how this was one of the places in Berlin where deportations took place. This was a very poweful experience to see.

A very simple but extremely effective memorial to the role German railways had in the deportation of the European Jews to the concentration camps. Consisting of 186 cast steel plaques arranged in chronological order on the platform edges each recording the date, number and destination...More
