Otto Weidt Museum (Museum Blindenwerkstatt Otto Weidt)
A unique and moving tribute to one of the everyday heroes of World War II, the Otto Weidt Museum tells the story of the site's history as Weidt's Workshop for the Blind. Visually impaired himself, Weidt owned and ran a factory in this space, producing brooms and brushes during the war and employing about 30 blind and deaf Jews between the years of 1941 and 1943.

Weidt went to great lengths to keep his employees safe from persecution, even finding places for some to hide, falsifying documents, helping them escape from assembly camps by bribing the Gestapo to have his workers released.

Today, the museum is devoted to telling compelling Weidt's story with letters, poems and photographs displayed alongside the personal stories of his former employees. The workshop is mostly in the same state it was in during the war, allowing travelers to get an authentic look at the conditions where employees worked and where one family hid behind a backless cupboard in the space.

Practical Info

The Otto Weidt Museum is located in central Berlin at Rosenthaler Strasse 39, about a 10-minute walk from Alexanderplatz. Take the S5, S7 or S75 to Hackescher Markt, then take An der Spandauer Brücke to Rosenthaler Strasse. The museum is open daily from 10am to 8pm. Admission is free.

Berlin Under the Third Reich: Private 4-hour Walking TourHalf-day Tours

Berlin Under the Third Reich: Private 4-hour Walking Tour

Berlin was the dark heart of Nazi Germany – the capital city of a dictatorship that was responsible for waging a war that destroyed swathes of the European continent and industrially murdering millions. Why did the Germans think they needed Adolf Hitler in 1933? How could a civilised people fall so deep into the moral abyss? Why were Jewish and other minority groups, both in Germany and across Europe, ruthlessly targeted? What is the legacy of Nazism in Germany today? This tour answers such questions, giving crucial context regarding the rise of Adolf Hitler in pre-Nazi Germany, providing a comprehensive overview of the National Socialist capital, and telling the dramatic tale of the Battle of Berlin and the collapse of the regime in 1945.
