Dusseldorf Memorial and Remembrance Center

3D tour


Established in 1987, the Mahn- und Gedenkstätte Düsseldorf is dedicated to all victims of National Socialism in Düsseldorf as a place of learning, research and remembrance.

You can pay a virtual visit to the permanent exhibition "Düsseldorf Children and Young People under National Socialism" in the historic city hall on Mühlenstraßen. 

The memorial sees itself as a central documentation and research center for Düsseldorf's city history between 1933 and 1945. Among other things, it uses individual biographies to explain how the lives of children and young people from different population groups changed during this period. For example, what was the life of a Jewish girl like in 1938? What did her life have in common with a Hitler boy, a young Jehovah's Witness or a young Social Democrat?
