Kreuzberg, the district called Südost 36, SO36, where confrontations between supporters of the workers' movement and members of the strengthening NSDAP came to a dangerous head towards the end of the Weimar Republic. There were regular attacks on each other, sometimes resulting in deaths. On the walk we find out what the political situation was like in the neighbourhood against which these confrontations took place. Who were the protagonists?

This event is part of the METROPOLIS series of the ZLB. We will take you through the different decades of Berlin.
We start in the "golden" twenties - sequined dresses and exuberant parties alongside politically motivated street fights and explosive criminal cases. Find out what moved people in the metropolis on the Spree at that time.
