I've been to Berlin countless times and passed through Grunewald station on many occasions but only learned of Gleis 17 very recently. It was one of the most moving places I have ever been. The plates on the platforms with the dates and numbers of...More

I take every guest there, who visits Berlin and me. You walk along dates and numbers of people and names of concentration camps and one does not need much phantasy to imagine the train, the police, the dogs, the shouting, the people being pushed into...More

I am so glad we made time to visit this sight in Berlin. Hard to imagine how many people were sent to camps between 1941 and 1945 from this location. A memorial very well done. This is located in a very old and posh section...More

If you want to walk around, exploring the area than it is worth going there. A good reminder, but sad as well. Pay attention that we all play a part how we interact with each other.

Our guide took us to Gleis 17, which we had not known about. It was very touching to read the many markers on both sides of the railroad track, listing how many Jews were loaded on railroad cars and their destination. Of course not many...More

It took some ordinary people to recognise the significance of this place, and do something about it. Rather than detail my impressions, I'd just say that it's probably a good idea to go there with a guide, who could also take you to nearby Wannsee

No tourists and very quiet. Filled with mixed emotions looking at each panel and learn a number of people left from this very platform almost every day during the war time.
