Many of the Berliners who took to the streets on March 18, 1848, for a better life were simple, often young people. Most of them were desperately poor. Numerous apprentices, craftsmen and workers were among them, as well as some women. They were all united by the courage to dedicate their lives to social improvements and freedom rights.
255 victims of the Berlin March Revolution are buried in the Cemetery of the March Fallen. The cemetery was created especially for them. It is not only an authentic site of the revolutionary events, but was deliberately created as a memorial to the revolution and the fallen barricade fighters.
