German Resistance Memorial Center

The German Resistance Memorial Center is located at 13–14 Stauffenbergstraße, on the historical site of the attempted coup of July 20, 1944, at the former Army High Command. Since 1953, the commemorative courtyard had been a site of remem-brance for resistance to National Socialism.

The permanent exhibition »Resistance against National Socialism« on the second floor documents the entire social breadth and ideological diver-sity of the struggle against the Nazi dictatorship in 18 sections. Special exhibitions and a varied program of events and publi-cations are devoted to individual subjects in more depth. The German Resistance Memorial Center is a site of remembrance, political studies, active learning, documentation, and research. The center’s goal is to show how individual persons and groups took action against the National Socialist dictatorship from 1933 to 1945 and made use of what freedom of action they had
