Nazi Forced Labour Camp - Zwangsarbeit (Schöneweide)

When we think about Berlin and the relationship with the Nazi time, the first image is the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe (Denkmal für die ermordeten Juden Europas) or to some extent at KZ Sachsenhausen. But eality is that there were several small camps, subcamps and forced labour camps all over the city. Sometimes very small and not so 'strong' as moral impact as the very big ones. 
The last well-preserved former Nazi forced labor camp is located in Schöneweide. In the Second World War it served as one of the more than 3000 collective accommodations dispersed throughout the city for forced labourers. The Documentation Center on Nazi Forced Labor opened in the summer of 2006 on a part of historical grounds that once belonged to the camp and which are today protected as a monument.
