Rosenstrasse protest memorial

Updated: Oct 2, 2022

The Old Synagogue and the central offices of the Jewish community were on Rosenstrasse street. On February 27, 1943, the Gestapo – the Nazi secret police, arrested the remaining Jews left in Berlin. Among them, 1,800 Jewish men were married to German women. The wives started to gather in front of the offices for a spontaneous demonstration to release their husbands. Finally, the Nazis released the men. Unfortunately, the faith of all the other Jewish men who weren't married to German women was different: all of them were sent to the extermination camps.


The memorial erected in the garden commemorates the unique civic protest of those women.



Pay attention to the other side of the park – there is a statue of a man sitting on a bench. He's watching the demonstration with indifference.
