is a site of remembrance, political studies, active learning, documentation, and research. An extensive permanent exhibition, a series of temporary special exhibitions, events, and a range of publications document and illustrate resistance to National Socialism. The center's goal is to show how individual persons and groups took action against the National Socialist dictatorship from 1933 to 1945 and made use of what freedom of action they had.

Topic 1: Resistance against National Socialism
Topic 9: Stauffenberg and the Assassination Attempt of July 20, 1944
Topic 7: Georg Elser and the Assassination Attempt of November 8, 1939
Topic 13: Resistance by Young People
