A highly interesting - yet simple and sombre - place of remembrance and education. At a time in history when dissent was not allowed, misery and death often awaited those who stood up for their beliefs. This place tells the tales of some of these...More

The memorial lies besides a still working prison. It is made of a commemorative monument, a former hanging room used by the Nazis and another room where some details are given about the history of the place and some of those who lost their lives...More

I am not sure why this place does not appear in many guide books. I visited here many years ago, before the wall came down, and was struck then by the power of emotion this place brings to you. It is a small two room...More

There is a great chance that visitors are alone here, which makes it even more impressive. From 1933 to 1945, 2891 people were executed here. Today, the execution chamber is a appealing memorial. The other chamber is a documentation centre which gives the victims names...More

For anyone interested in WW2 history, this memorial is worth visiting. The small building houses the execution chamber where almost 3000 prisoners were killed between 1933 and 1945. The disturbing chamber features a beam from which multiple hangings took place. Perhaps the most famous victims...More

I had read accounts of those who opposed the Nazi regime, and here at Plotzensee Prison many were executed. The memorial and information centre are housed in a simple brick building surrounded by a prison still used as a juvenile detention centre. The information room...More
