Curator's Tour

The starting point of the exhibition is the present: In 2017, it turned out that barracks of a prisoner-of-war camp have survived in the south of the Berlin district of Lichterfelde. Here, the Wehrmacht interned mainly French soldiers from 1940 to 1945. The site is now to be developed with apartments and the historic barracks largely demolished.

The exhibition highlights the history of the Lichterfelde camp and the French prisoners of war in Berlin. The development of the site is presented from the pre-war period to its use as a prisoner-of-war camp to the current construction planning. Selected biographies open up further perspectives on the camp.

The exhibition contributes to the debate about what should be done with this important historical site.
