Overview
More
The last well-preserved former Nazi forced labor camp is located in Schöneweide. In the Second World War it served as one of the more than 3000 collective accommodations dispersed throughout the city for forced labourers. The museum offers two permanent exhibitions: "Forced Labour in the Daily Round 1939-1945" which gives an introduction into the complex topic of civil forced labour and "Between two Stools. Die History of the Italian Military Internees 1943-1945". Special exhibitions are offered as well. A MultiMedia Guide is guiding you through the Permanent exhibitions, the grounds of the former camp as well as around the neighborhood. It's available in German, English, French, Italian, Dutch, Spanish and Russian.
