Free admission

A unique and moving tribute to one of the everyday heroes of World War II, the Otto Weidt Museum tells the story of the site's history as Weidt's Workshop for the Blind. Visually impaired himself, Weidt owned and ran a factory in this space, producing brooms and brushes during the war and employing about 30 blind and deaf Jews between the years of 1941 and 1943.

Weidt went to great lengths to keep his employees safe from persecution, even finding places for some to hide, falsifying documents, helping them escape from assembly camps by bribing the Gestapo to have his workers released.

Today, the museum is devoted to telling compelling Weidt's story with letters, poems and photographs displayed alongside the personal stories of his former employees. The workshop is mostly in the same state it was in during the war, allowing travelers to get an authentic look at the conditions where employees worked and where one family hid behind a backless cupboard in the space.
