Although this complex is now part of the University, of the Deutsche Welle-TV and is famous in Berlin for the huge and very fascinating street art masterpiece from JR (http://www.jr-art.net/), this place have a different history.
With the beginning of World War II the Nazis brought forced labor in Germany. This additional "derived" workers were made available for different companies and corporations, among others AEG. They brought the foreign workers in the camps. They had at absolutely poor rations, inadequate clothing and brutal guard in day and night work - last far longer than 12 hours. The companies targeted a branch of production facilities in the immediate vicinity of the forced labor camps. The "living conditions" of the deported were lethal in increasingly poor medical care.
