Berlin as a place of remembrance
You can learn about Berlin's dark history at the Holocaust Memorial. The impressive Field of Stelae, also known as the "Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe," is located south of the Brandenburg Gate.
The Anne Frank Center focuses on the life and work of a young girl who was persecuted and killed because of her origin. The permanent exhibition explains why a small diary is so famous and shows that its thoughts are still relevant today.
On the site where the SS leadership once had its headquarters, there is now the main memorial site "Topography of Terror." The permanent exhibition informs visitors about the institutions Gestapo, SS and Reich Security Main Office and the crimes committed by them.
Anyone interested in the period of National Socialism in Germany's capital should also visit the Sachsenhausen concentration camp located in the north of the city.
