Repressed Memory. How West Berlin Dealt with Sites of Nazi Perpetrators

The exhibition presents examples demonstrating the difficulties of establishing monuments and memorial sites for the Nazi crimes in West Berlin, thereby focussing on the so-calle perpetrator sites. It also shows individuals and initiatives that played an important role in the city's effort to confront its National Socialist past. Their stories are an essential part on West Germany's culture of remembrance and they make clear that the process of confronting this past is far from over.
