Right next to the train stop...something you'll never forget as a "genuine" living memorial to the horrors of the Holocaust...By "genuine" I mean that the Horrors actually happened here and is delineated by steel plates/dates/numbers of transportees-

You walk straight out of the station onto this platform and it is a very well done memorial. When you look at the numbers and the dates it brings home what happened here. As also mentioned its worth taking a walk around the streets of this suburb as there are some lovely houses around. It is easy to get to... More

It is quite an isolated place, but for those who enjoy history, it is a great (and sad) experience to visit this train platform. It is also a nice alternative to the mainstream sightseeing, therefore I would definitely recommend visiting Gleis 17!

This is the place that Nazis bring the Jews to sent them to Concentrations Camp. It has many reports about when and how many Jews had sent from this place. Totally brutal and devastating. Anyone should tribute this innocent lives.

This quiet place......platform 17, was where thousands of Jews were transported to various camps. It was chilling to read the numbers of victims and the trequency of these journeys. Once you get to Grunwald, on the S7 line, you will see signs for Gleis17. Look down and on the large metal plates you will read when and where these transportations... More

This really is a moving experience unlike the memorial to the murdered Jews. There is no need for 'artificial' monuments dedicated to the holocaust. There are many all to real ones dotted around Europe and this is one of them. They are all chilling.

A moving place, which is subtly done but in a very moving, respectful way of remembrance. Looking around at the district, a quiet, seems well to do area you would not expect this as a departure point for industrial scale murder. The numbers of deportees, the date and the destination are on plagues all around the platform. A wall sculpture... More

We visited this memorial, having previously visited several memorials to Nazi victims, this was an unplanned stop returning from Wannsee. We stayed about 10 minutes. The memorial really drives home the numbers involved, and the patterns of deportation, in numbers and destinations. In my opinion a must visit destination if you want to pay respects to the victims

This was the place from where more than 50000 Jews from Berlin went in the trains which took them to their final destination :the death camps.

Such a sad place to visit and yet has to be done. Worth making the effort to visit Gleis 17, a much more impactful spot than just a monument. This is where it happened. A quiet spot without the hordes, helps to spend time reflecting on the horrors of Nazi Germany.
