Leistikowstrasse memorial and cultural centre

Leistikowstrasse memorial and cultural centre

In the summer of 1945 the old rectory in Potsdam was captured by the Soviet military counter-intelligence agency and converted into an interrogation facility.

The prison building, which has largely been preserved intact, documents the injustice perpetrated here on thousands of detainees. The compelling permanent exhibition on the building's past focuses on the fates of those arrested. At various media points former inmates attest to the barbaric conditions and brutal interrogations.

Opening times:

Tuesday-Sunday 2pm-6pm

Events

'Experience, shop, enjoy' is the theme of the Potsdam Erlebnisnacht, an event that attracts tens of thousands of people to the baroque heart of the Brandenburg capital on the last Saturday in July. 

The party atmosphere continues well into the night with concerts, acrobats and music in the streets, and all shops are allowed to remain open until midnight. One amazing experience is 'ice football' at the ice rink in the height of summer.

Upcoming dates:

27.07.2019

Venue

Innenstadt
Lange Brücke
