  Topography of Terror
by Blatherwick

This exibition about the Gestapo and the SS is located on the grounds of the former Gestapo HQ. The museum does a good job of documenting the activities of the Nazi regime. The museum was free when I last went. I recommend picking up an audio tour (English or German) to help understand what the significance of each room is.

Behind this exhibition or its projects is still a remaining section of the wall. The building in the background is the only Nazi building to last through the Allied bombing and Soviet reprisals. It was the Luftwaffe HQ and it is now the Ministry of Finance (Another form of terror???).
