The Plötzensee Memorial Center: Permanent Exhibition

The Plötzensee Memorial Center commemorating the victims of National Socialism is a site of quiet remembrance. From 1933 to 1945, nearly three thousand people were executed here who had been unjustly sentenced to death by the National Socialist judiciary.

1 The Plötzensee Prison

10 Judicial Terror

11 Judicial Murders of Czech Resistance Fighters
