Gedenkort Hilde Radusch

Meet at Hilde Radusch

This is a place for dating where one woman waits for another woman. It is the place of remembrance for Hilde Radusch (1903-1994), who lived here in the 1920s and discovered the lesbian world of the Schöneberg district for herself. She works as a telephone operator, is politically involved with the trade union and the Communist Party - and smokes cigars with emancipatory pride.

During the Nazi era, she first became a worker after her imprisonment. Then she opens a small restaurant together with her friend. From the 1970s she became involved in the women's movement - and in particular in the lesbian movement in West Berlin.
