These are particularly evident in the ravaged crumbles of the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church as well as the old central train terminal, both stops along the way.

Rosenstrasse Protest Memorial
This protest on Rosenstrasse was the only public German protest against the deportation of Jews, and it shows the contradicting notion that Germans had to choose between resisting the Nazi Regime and martyrdom. Those German women stood by their men and refused to abandon them in the face of imminent death.
At the Reichstag - the parliament building in which Hitler never stepped foot - we explain how Hitler rose to power. We also see the memorial to the 96 parliamentarians who eventually gave their lives after voting against Hitler.
Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe
This massive new Holocaust Memorial consists of 2711 concrete stella, all at various heights and slight angles. We give you time to explore not only this memorial, but also the contrasting memorial to the homosexual victims to further understand how Germany is coping with its past.
The building is notable as the headquarters of a resistance group of Wehrmacht officers who carried out the 20 July plot against Adolf Hitler in 1944. As the leaders of the conspiracy were summarily shot in the courtyard, the Bendlerblock also includes the Memorial to the German Resistance. Since 1993, the building complex has served as a secondary seat of the German Federal Ministry of Defence.
Former air raid shelter
See one of the last remaining civilian air raid shelters and hear about how they are now being reused. These were typically topped with anti-aircraft guns and filled way beyond capacity during the bloody
Battle of Berlin
The Battle of Berlin, designated the Berlin Strategic Offensive Operation by the Soviet Union, and also known as the Fall of Berlin, was one of the last major offensives of the European theatre of World War II.
Site of Hitler’s bunker
Stand over the area of Hitler's bunker as we recount in detail the demise of Hitler and the final days of World War II. As one of the final stops on the tour, we use this area to then explain how the Cold War grew from the ashes of WWII.
The New Synagogue was built to serve the growing Jewish population in Berlin, in particular, immigrants from the East. It was the largest synagogue in Germany at the time, seating 3,000 people. The building housed public concerts, including a violin concert with Albert Einstein in 1930. With an organ and a choir, the religious services reflected the liberal developments in the Jewish community of the time.
Soviet War Memorial
This is a war memorial and military cemetery in Berlin's Treptower Park. It was built to the design of the Soviet architect Yakov Belopolsky to commemorate 7,000 of the 80,000 Soviet soldiers who fell in the Battle of Berlin in April–May 1945. It opened four years after World War II on May 8, 1949. The Memorial served as the central war memorial of East Germany.
These are stones 10x10 cm in a concrete cube bearing a brass plate inscribed with the name and life dates of victims of Nazi extermination or persecution.
