The Nazi’s atrocities of World War II have been documented heavily by Germany, and in specific, Berlin. Here are some of the best tributes to the victims of the war.
Topography of Terror - Built on the grounds of the Gestapo and SS’s former stronghold, the museum creates a transportive experience, reviving your historical conscious by offering a detailed look into photographs, news articles and artefacts from the Third Reich.
Holocaust Memorial - Before you enter the museum, take a stroll through the sombre grey monoliths that rise out of the courtyard. Meant to emulate the tension and isolation felt during the Holocaust, it is a striking sight. The museum unveils chilling stories of the horrors of war and the scars of Germany.
The Berlin Wall - Eastside Gallery - Of course, no trip to Berlin is complete without a visit to the Berlin Wall. Officially torn down on November 9th, 1989, the wall now subsists in several segments. The largest of this has been converted into The Eastside Gallery, an artistic expression of poignant political illustrations.
Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp - Located outside Berlin in Oranienburg, Sachsenhausen was an actual Nazi concentration camp that has now been turned into a museum and memorial site. Much of the interiors have been reconstructed to mirror the actual site, making the experience one that is unforgettable.
