Not far from Charlie's checkpoint is a place called Topographie des Terrors, which is located on the ruins of the Gestapo and SS headquarters during the Nazi German period. The original building was destroyed by Allied forces. Now it is an open-air museum, from which the Berlin Wall passed. It is a relatively well-preserved section of the Berlin Wall. I particularly liked their documentation center, but I saw it in a hurry, mainly because I had to go a little late and had to see people turn off the lights "rush visitors" before leaving. In so many pictures and materials, I pay more attention to the expression of ordinary people in that era, the excitement of the people, the indifference to death and the worship of totalitarianism, which are both remote and familiar to us. The trip to Berlin gave me a strong feeling that the Germans are indeed a reflective nation, daring to face up to the dark history of the country, which is reflected in many details. Berlin is not only a place with history, but also a place with stories. It is worth visiting again.
Berlin's horror ring is next to the memorial to the murdered Jews, which was the scene of the Nazi massacre of Jews in Germany. It's very dark and horrible here. The exhibition area is full of pictures and texts showing the scene of Nazi murder. It's really horrible to see. Nevertheless, they still respect the Germans. They face up to their own history so much better than Japan.
Terrorist topographic maps were the premises of Hitler's Army during World War II, and now there is only a stripped-out Berlin Wall. Next to it was a museum that gave a detailed account of Germany under Hitler's control. There was time to really take a closer look at that period of history.
The original building of the headquarters of the Third Reich Secret Police (Gestapo) has been destroyed. A New Museum of modern style was built at the site, showing the actions of the Gestapo and the SS forces and the resistance of the rebels. Although the building is gone, the underground prison is still there, and the roof has been lifted, and a prison room can be seen on the ground.
You can get a lot of information here, and it is worth recommending that there are two parts: one is to read the external version, the other is to enter the interior, which every visitor to Berlin must visit: history is vividly presented in front of us through photographs, documents and other ways.
A depressing place, near the centre of Berlin, is similar to an exhibition hall without tickets. There are all kinds of pictures and letters, showing the crimes of Hitler Nazis during World War II. There are many people in the library, but they are quiet. Everyone is very serious. I walked around and saw those pictures. I felt depressed in my heart besides depression. There is also a section of the Berlin Wall outside.
To the west of Charlie's checkpoint, along Niederkirchner, there once stood some of the most terrible institutions of the Third Reich - "Gestapo Headquarters, the Central Command of the Nazi SS Army, the SS Security Bureau and the Imperial Security Headquarters after 1939. These buildings no longer exist, but since 1997 a sad open-air exhibition called "Terrorist Sentences" has recreated the historic importance of the site and the brutal institutions that were then there. The exhibition is in German, but free English audio commentary is available at the information desk. Note that some of the pictures on display may be too bloody for children.
Located at the old Gestapo headquarters, the Museum of Terrorist Criminal Sites reproduces the ravages and brilliant scenes of Germany and the world suffered by Gestapo. I think it also reveals why Germany is keen on kneeling unconditionally to lick Muslim livestock refugees.
