Rosenstrasse protest memorial


On Rosenstrasse street stood the old synagogue and the central offices of the Jewish community. On February 27, 1943, the Gestapo – the Nazi secret police, arrested the remaining Jews who were left in Berlin, amongst them 1,800 Jewish men who were married to German women. The wives started to gather in front of the offices for a spontaneity demonstration in demand to release their husbands. The Nazis released the men. The faith of all the other Jewish men, who weren’t married to Grman women was different: all of them were sent to the extermination camps.


The memorial erected in the garden commemorates the unique civic protest of the women. At the side of the park – there is also a statue of a man sitting on a bench and watching the demonstration with indifference.
