The Plötzensee Memorial Center commemorating the victims of National Socialism is a site of quiet remembrance. From 1933 to 1945, more than 2,800 people unjustly sentenced to death by the National Socialist judiciary were executed here. Today, the execution chamber is a memorial. The permanent exhibition in the room adjoining it commemorates all victims of the unjust Nazi justice system murdered here.
