One of the earliest and most important in Germany, the story of the camp from its origins, its development within the camp system, its wartime use, the liberation and its post-war history during the Soviet period, are told in a series of exhibitions within the extensive remains of the camp itself.
A visit to this holocaust memorial centre and former concentration camp helps pupils gain an understanding of the events during WWII. Guided tours of the entrance, guard towers, barracks and museum are available.
The lakeside villa, where the now famous meeting took place in January 1942, houses a permanent exhibition House Of The Wannsee Conference which seeks to place the Wannsee Conference in its historical context. The exhibition traces the chronological development of the Holocaust from the origins of anti-Semitism through the conference itself, to the mass deportations and extermination.
When inaugurated in 1866, the Neue Synagogue on Oranienburger Strasse was one of the largest in the world and the most important in the city. Damaged during Kristallnacht, the building was destroyed during the war. The front section and dome were restored in the 1980s and now house a fascinating museum chronicling the history of the building and its congregation. There are particularly good sections on the 1930s and the wartime period.
Situated about 60 miles north of Berlin, the extensive remains of Ravensbrück (the principal women’s concentration camp) now houses collections and exhibitions chronicling all aspects of the camp’s history. Among the thousands executed here were female members of the British spy network S.O.E. including Violet Szabo.
Located at the very heart of the city on the Alexanderplatz, the Berlin TV tower is part of German history: in the sixties the East German government had the TV tower built to demonstrate the strength and efficiency of the socialist party system. Today the tower shapes the skyline of the German capital city - a landmark of the reunited Germany.
Berlin’s only remaining city gate and a symbol of unified Germany. The Quadriga that sits on top has a history as eventful as the city’s.
