As from October 1941 about 55,000 Jews
were abducted from
their homes and driven through the
public and the roads of Berlin to the
stations Pulitzstrasse, Anhalter Bahnhof
and Grunewald. They were deported e.g.
to the concentration camps of Theresienstadt, Riga,
Lodz and later directly to the death camp of
Auschwitz where they were murdered.
Every month from October 1941 to March
1945 humans stood on track 17 (in german
Gleis 17) of the station Grunewald in
order to begin their journey into death.
