History - World War II, Berlin: 80 reviews and 244 photos

 
 

Wandering around Oranienburgerstrasse, we found this street and the moving memorial monument by Will Lammert Judische Opfer des Faschismus, a bronze sculture of thirteen people. It is located in a park, where was the oldest jewish cemetery in Berlin (1671). The cemetry was destroyed by the Gestapo, which installed there a collection point for those Jews which were to be deported. Over 55,000 Berliner Jews were deported from Berlin into concentration camps.

Esta situado en un parque donde estaba el mas antiguo cementerio judio de Berlin (1671). El cementerio fue destruido por la Gestapo, que instalo alli un punto de recogida para judios que iban a ser deportados. Fueron deportados a campos de concentracion mas de 55,000 judios berlineses.
