Excursion Details:
  • 44 years of political persecution: You can follow the darker side of Berlin’s GDR history in the Hohenschönhausen Memorial. GDR opponents, people who helped others to flee and political prisoners are all familiar with the former Stasi prison. Today the Berlin Hohenschönhausen Memorial remembers their story.
  • Contemporary witnesses guide you over the site that houses 44 years of political persecution. Large parts of the building have been preserved and give you an authentic impression of the prison conditions between 1946 and 1990.
  • The permanent exhibition Inhaftiert in Hohenschönhausen shows 300 photos and nearly 500 artefacts including prison clothes and letters from inmates. It depicts the everyday lives of the inmates as well as the story of the former Stasi prison. Now for the first time, separate parts of the exhibition look at the world of the culprits.
  • On a walk-in, 160 square meter aerial photograph, visitors can explore numerous service objects and thousands of conspiratorial apartments with the help of tablets. Photos, videos and documents illustrate the extent of surveillance. Visitors follow in the footsteps of numerous individual fates – surveillance measures, kidnappings, arrests.
