Remembrance in the City

Since the early 1950s, almost all streets, squares and public buildings in the memorial area Charlottenburg-Nord have been named after men and women who resisted National Socialism for various reasons. Many of them were executed at Plötzensee prison.

The biographies of the people in resistance were researched and written in it’s majority by Gedenkstätte Deutscher Widerstand (“German Resistance Memorial Center”) and provided together with the photos as part of a cooperation with Bezirksamt Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf for the website “Path of Remembrance”. They are part of a comprehensive collection to be find at
