On the way, pastor Michael Maillard will give explanations about the background and the names of streets and schools named after people of the resistance.

In the former execution shed of the Plötzensee prison (today: Plötzensee Memorial), almost 3,000 people sentenced to death were executed during the Nazi era, including many people of the resistance against Hitler.

They are commemorated by the nearby churches in Charlottenburg-Nord. Streets, schools and squares in the region are named after resistance fighters.

The "Path of Remembrance" opens up the memorial region between the Plötzensee Memorial and the neighboring churches.
