The Plötzensee Memorial Center

The Plötzensee Memorial Center commemorating the victims of National Socialism is a European site of quiet remembrance. From 1933 to 1945, nearly three thousand people unjustly sentenced to death by the National Socialist judiciary were executed here. They included more than 1,400 Germans and more than 1,500 other people from over 20 other nations. Today, the execution chamber is a memorial. The exhibition in the room adjoining it documents the practice of the National Socialist judicial and penal system in a permanent exhibition in German and English. A computer terminal presents information on all those murdered in Plötzensee. This documentation is constantly expanded by the German Resistance Memorial Center.

Remembrance room for the German and internional victims of National Socialism.
Permanent exhibition on the National Socialist judicial and penal system.
