On August 25, 2010, a permanent English and German language exhibition called "Berlin 1933 – 1945. Between Propaganda and Terror" was opened in the exhibition trench alongside the excavated cellar wall segments on Niederkirchnerstraße. The exhibition focuses on Berlin's historic role as the capital city of the "Third Reich". Germany's capital city was not only the site of all of the ministries' headquarters, but was also where the National Socialists established their most significant terror administration centers. It was Hitler's wish that Berlin be built up as the future "World Capital of Germania". Berliners initially experienced the beginning of the war as a quick series of victories. It was only in the second half of the war that air strikes over Berlin led to a considerable decline in their living conditions. The traces of national socialist rule are still present in the city today.

Open from Spring to Fall, 10am until dark (until 8pm at the latest)
