Nazi Forced Labour Documentation Centre

The Nazi Forced Labour Documentation Centre Berlin in Schöneweide opened in summer 2006 and tells the story of one of the darkest episodes of Berlin’s industrial history. During the Second World War the Nazi forced labour camp, whose site is today a listed monument, was one of more than 3,000 camps for forced labourers spread throughout the city. This is the only one in Berlin to have survived largely intact.

The Nazi Forced Labour Documentation Centre is an outpost of the Topography of Terror Foundation. It is continually developing as a place of exhibition, archiving and learning. Since August 2010 it has been possible to visit the well-preserved Barrack 13 on guided tours. A multimedia guide leads visitors through the permanent exhibition Everyday Forced Labour 1938–1945, the site of the former camp and the neighbourhood.
