A wonderful and important museum. It's tiny but extremely impactful and perfect for a solo traveler to spend an hour or two. It is tiny, so I got sandwiched between some tour groups, but it was actually nice to be able to hear the guides! If you are at all interested in history, and even if you aren't, this should be on your list for Berlin.

A great little add on for your trip to Berlin. Fun small streetart pieces all over the alley. Everything from beautiful art, political comments and fun pictures. Very creative and will definitely make your day a little better. Make sure to stop my the small shops in the building at the end of the alley :)

This small, free museum documents the history of the Otti Weidt Workshop for the Blind, where the owner supported and assisted blind and dDeaf jewish people during the Nazi regime.
There is lots of touching information, a place full of history and personal stories.

Otto Weidt was a holocaust hero. You might not have heard for him in front of Schindler of course, but he saved many blind Jews by employing them in his factory which is this building and it's well worth a visit.
Hidden down a quirky alley opposite the Anne Frank museum and next to some quirky bars, this colourful place is really worth a visit and to pay respects to Otto.
Don't pass it by.

This is a small museum with an amazing story. It's free and only takes a half hour or so. It has very moving stories about individuals whose lives were affected by this generous man.

What a great museum telling a part of History I didn't know about, very detail. It's also free entry. This small hidden museum is a must see.

Nice museum to visit especially if you did not know Otto Weidt. His story is quite amazing and deserves to be known.

Visit during the day. In the evening is dark and more difficult to admire. Today the walls are covered with popular art. The building where Otto Weidt provided activities for people with visual impairments, there were a hiding place for Jews. In the villa there is a bar, where is aloud to smoke inside. In another building there is a museum explaining the life of Anne Frank and the saga of her family to escape the Nazis.

Otto Weidt was a "mini" Oskar Schindler. He saved deaf and blind Jews during the Nazi regime by employing them in his factory. We didn't go through the whole museum but we learned his story from our local guide.
