The place itself is very simple, there is small information, the monument and the rails. But in facts this is the base of this tragedy, the simple everyday life of trains passing and deporting jewish people from a very small train station at the border of Berlin to the concentration camps, to "Theresienstadt" (Terezín) and oher places of no return.
More then 50.000 left Berlin from this place, the railways remember the wagons and the number of deported people and their destinations, on the monument's wall there are marks of humans digged into it, blurred human forms.
