Places to commemorate the victims of the Third Reich

The National Socialism memorials in Berlin commemorate the victims of National Socialism, war, expulsion and suffering.

The Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, a remarkable field of pillars, is located next to Brandenburg Gate. The Memorial to Homosexuals Persecuted Under Nazism and the Memorial to the Sinti and Roma Victims of National Socialism in Europe are not far away in Tiergarten. The Sachsenhausen memorial site, a former concentration camp, is located in the countryside surrounding Berlin. The Memorial to the German Resistance helps keeps the memory of the circle around Stauffenberg and the resistance to Nazism alive. There is an empty library embedded in the ground at Bebelplatz – a reminder of the book burnings.
