The Silent Heroes Memorial Center

commemorates those people who supported persecuted Jews during the Nazi dictatorship. The example set by these helpersoften referred to as "silent heroes"shows that there was in fact leeway for maneuvering to help people at risk in Nazi Germany and in the German-occupied territories.

The permanent exhibition presents information about the persecution and plight of Jews facing imminent deportation, about how some of them decided to resist the threat to their lives by going underground, and about the actions and motivations of the men and women who helped them. Not only successful rescues are documented, but also failed attempts.

Reopening of the Silent Heroes Memorial Center
at its new location

As of February 14, 2018, the Silent Heroes Memorial Center will present the expanded and completely redesigned permanent exhibition "Resistance to Persecution of the Jews 19331945" at its new location at Stauffenbergstraße 13-14, 10785 Berlin-Mitte.

The exhibition and catalog were funded by Germany's Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.

We look forward to welcoming you!
