Crime Sites. Tour to the Sites of Forced Sterilization and "Euthanasia" in Berlin

The half-day bus tour in the company of expert guides begins at the Jewish Museum and goes to sites of forced sterilization and "euthanasia" in Berlin: To Tiergartenstraße 4, the central office responsible for the mass murder, to the former Hereditary Health Court in Charlottenburg, to the Jewish Hospital, whose neurological ward provided the final collection point for Jewish psychiatric patients before their deportation, and to the former Wittenau Sanatorium. There the exhibition entitled "Totgeschwiegen" narrates the history of the psychiatric clinic. The tour's final stop is in Dahlem, one of the leading scientific locations before and during the Nazi era, where the Kaiser Wilhelm Institute for Anthropology, Human Genetics, and Eugenics could be found.
