This is where you can find out all about the history of the former workhouse and Rummelsburg prison in Lichtenberg, Berlin.
From the imperial period beginning in the 19th century through to the Nazi era and under the communist East German regime, this site was a place of persecution and repression.
This app will take you through the premises of the former workhouse and prison.
Today it’s a leafy and attractive residential and recreational area, but once it spelled the end of the line for political dissidents and criminal offenders: founded in 1879, the former Rummelsburg workhouse was converted and used in the German Democratic Republic (GDR) as a prison from 1951 until 1990.
Find out what the red brick ensemble looked like as a detention facility, the functions each building had in the repressive regime of everyday prison life, and what people who experienced the prison firsthand have to say about it.
