You won't forget this memorial as it gives you the perspective of the Jews who were transported to concentration camps; you stand on the same ground and can easily imagine their experience. When you enter the tunnel, look for the sign Gleis 17. Take the...More

Simple memorial to the many Jews who were transported from this one time station. The edges of the (long) platform commemorate the dates and numbers of people taken from here to almost certain death. A quiet spot for reflection.

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
