Permanent exhibition

Located in the city centre of Potsdam, the Lindenstrasse Memorial Site bears witness to the history of political persecution and violence under the different dictatorships in 20th century Germany. It is also a testament to the victory of democracy in the Peaceful Revolution of 1989/90. The permanent exhibition tells the story of the site in four sections.

Centre stage are the people who were sentenced and imprisoned there for political reasons during the National Socialist dictatorship, the Soviet occupation and the East German communist dictatorship, as well as those who played a part in bringing down this regime in 1989/90.
