Topography of Terror

This exhibition stands on the ground occupied, from 1933 to 1945, by the Gestapo building and its built-in prison.

The complex was also the site of the SS leadership and the headquarters of the state security forces. Among all the memorials, monuments and museums in Berlin that deal with Germany's Nazi past, the Topography of Terror – 'the site of the perpetrators' – has a significance all of its own. At the heart of Germany's capital, you can learn about the headquarters of the SS and the police state in the place where they actually stood – which makes the European aspect of the Nazi reign of terror all the more real.
