Silent Heroes Memorial Center

Silent Heroes Memorial Centre

The Silent Heroes Memorial Center commemorates those people who supported persecuted Jews during the Nazi dictatorship. The example set by these helpers often referred to as “silent heroes” shows that it was in fact possible to save people in Nazi Germany. In the German-occupied territories as well, despite the risk, individual Germans found the courage to exploit any leeway they had for maneuvering.

The permanent exhibition offers information about the persecution and hopeless situation of Jews in view of the impending deportations, about the decision by some to oppose the deadly threat by going into hiding, and about the actions and motives of the women and men who assisted them. Successful rescues are documented as well as failed attempts.

The content and organisation of the Silent Heroes Memorial Center is maintained by the German Resistance Memorial Center Foundation.
