Museum Blindenwerkstatt Otto Weidt
The museum tells the story of Otto Weidt. During World War II, visually impaired broom and brush maker Otto Weidt employed many Jews in his workshop at Rosenthaler Straße 39.
This museum to a citizen-hero is administered by the German Resistance Memorial Centre Foundation, and was developed out of a student project; it tells Weidt’s story with archival photos and interviews with some of those he saved. With advance booking, tours are available free of charge in English, French, Italian, Spanish and Turkish.
Also at this location are the Anne Frank Center, and the Foundation’s Silent Heroes Memorial Center, opened in 2008, which commemorates Germans who helped Jews during National Socialism. The museum is located in the bustling Hackescher Markt neighborhood not far from Alexanderplatz. Admission is free.
