Memorial to the Homosexuals Persecuted Under the National Socialist Regime, Berlin

Monument Tourist Spot
Memorial to the Homosexuals Persecuted Under the National Socialist Regime brings to light an oft-forgotten aspect of the Nazi regime's rule. Homosexual victims of World War II in Germany were not recognized until the 1980s--long after the end of the war. This memorial, which opened to the public in 2008, is an intriguing cube with a small window, designed by artists Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset. Peer through the window to see a film of two men kissing, a tribute to those tormented and outlawed by the Nazi government.

  • This is near the Memorial to the Murdered Jews in Europe but is in Tiergarten Park across the road. It is a simple sculpture (similar to the block sculpture of the other memorial) but you look through...  more »

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
