Places of Remembrance by R. Stih & F. Schnock

Memorial in the Bavarian Quarter
in Berlin-Schoeneberg (1993)
by Renata Stih & Frieder Schnock

Places of Remembrance / Orte des Erinnerns is a decentralized memorial in the Bavarian Quarter in the Schoeneberg district of Berlin, which was inaugurated in 1993. 80 double-sided signs are put up on lampposts, depicting images on the one side and on the reverse side condensed versions of anti-Jewish Nazi rules and regulations passed between 1933 and 1945.

Together, the words and images force passers-by to remember the almost-forgotten history of this neighborhood, where Albert Einstein, Hannah Arendt, Gisele Freund and Carl Einstein once lived.

Dispersed throughout the area the memorial becomes a metaphor of the daily deprivation of rights and humiliation, leading to deportations and mass murder of Jews during the Nazi era.
