Otto Weidt was a broom and brush maker who employed mainly blind and deaf Jews during World War II. He risked his own life trying to save those threatened with deportation and death by providing food, organising false papers, bribing Gestapo officials and even hiding people in the back of his workshop. A highlight is a moving video in which survivors recall Weidt’s efforts to save their lives.

Free audioguides are available. Tours take place at 3pm on Sundays.
