Making Amends. Compensation and Restitution cases in Divided Berlin

An exhibition by the Aktives Museum Faschismus und Widerstand in Berlin e.V. in cooperation with the German Resistance Memorial Center

Documenting the struggle to find adequate ways of providing compensation and restitution, this exhibition traces the difficult search for practicable bureaucratic procedures to make amends for unprecedented crimes, and reveals how the fates of Nazi victims were ‘processed’ in post-war Germany. Spotlighting 27 individual cases from East and West Berlin, it illustrates the many different dimensions of “Wiedergutmachung”.

An exhibition catalogue (German-language) has been published by Lukas Verlag which is available in bookstores and at a reduced price at the visitors’ information desk at the German Resistance Memorial Center.

The exhibition is on display on the 1st floor, special exhibition area, until January 14, 2016.

Mon – Wed, Fri 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.
