Next to the normal train "Gleis", you can find the Gleis 17. You will see pro day, the number of "Juden" which have been sent to the camp.. It is really impressive

A must for every man and woman. A most important memorial. Very powerful. Pay attention to the written information on the railways blocks. 3 other memorials near by. Don't miss them. Best to take a guided tour.

A powerful place to visit...with my guide was 5 stars. However, had we not had a guide I don't think we would have understood much there...so it gets a 3 star rating.

This place was gut wrenching. You stand on the platform on the spot where people were brought to be loaded on to railway cars to be shipped to concentration camps. On the edge of the platform on both sides were plaques stating a particular date, the number of people shipped out of that day and the camp to which they were sent. Real NAZI efficiency.
You walk away speechless.

We did not see this on any tourist info, but was recommended by a friend. Outside the nearest station, Grunewald, are stalls selling fruit and vegetables; there is a lovely bakery and opposite, a little bar serving excellent beer. The setting is peaceful and pretty-totally belying the horror that took place there during WWII. A minute's walk from the station lie the old railway tracks, and on the edge of the long, iron platforms are the actual number of Jews deported, the date they left and to which camps the were sent. On some days it was a few hundred, on others over a thousand. There is a florist just outside Grunewald station and so I returned to buy flowers to leave on the tracks. A small gesture to pay my respects.
