The Memorial

Together, the Field of Steles and the exhibit remind the world of up to six million Jewish victims of the holocaust and honor them. Today, there are but few reminders of the existence of those murdered.  

The Permanent Exhibit at the „Information Center“

Millions of Jews had their homeland, culture and way of life stolen by the National Socialists and their helpers.

Their mortal remains did not find a proper burial place, for the most part, but were thrown into makeshift graves or burned. In many cases, not even their names are known. Testimonials by witnesses and the results of historic research enable us to remember the dead.

Especially for young people, the permanent exhibit under the Field of Steles is the centerpiece of the Memorial. Some of the four exhibit spaces dedicated to specific topics are constantly updated and completed, for example the Room of Names, whose expansion is a special and necessary task for the politics of remembrance.

The goal is to present as many biographies of the three million known victims as possible. The necessary research is elaborate and complicated, as the historic background of the persecution and annihilation must be explored in detail, in order to describe the life of a person – inasmuch as it can be reconstructed at all – in a few sentences.
This part of the Foundation’s work is financed exclusively through donations acquired by the Association.
