On July 20th, 1944, members of the German army attempted to assassinate Hitler by detonating a bomb in his East Prussia’s headquarters. He survived. That same night, four of the rebels were executed. The place where these murders took place is now the Gedenkstätte Deutscher WiderstandGerman Resistance Memorial Centre.

Dedicated to the memory of German nationals who resisted and opposed Nazism, the Memorial to the German Resistance is located on the “Bendler block”, a complex of offices in the southern area of the Tiergarten. First opened in 1968, the exhibition now contains over 5000 items – official documents, posters, newspapers, letters and images- that illustrate the motivations, goals and actions of those involved in the resistance.

A statue of a naked man in the central courtyard signals the exact place where the massacre occurred. A plaque on one of the walls reads: “You did not bear the shame. You resisted. You bestowed an eternally vigilant symbol of change by sacrificing your impassioned lives for freedom, justice and honor.”
