The district memorial Köpenicker Blutwoche commemorates an unprecedented wave of arrests and violence by the National Socialists, which became known as the "Köpenicker Blutwoche".


From June 21 to 26, 1933, units of the Sturmabteilung (SA) and Schutzstaffel (SS) abducted and mistreated several hundred political dissidents, Jews and women, leaving at least 23 people dead.

The "Köpenick Blood Week" is representative of the phase of the reign of power in which the National Socialists acted deliberately and publicly with intimidation, torture and murder.

The violence did not take place in secret, but in public and before the eyes of fellow citizens.
