Dokumentations- und Kulturzentrum der deutschen Sinti und Roma
The museum attempts to document the persecution of the German Sinti and Roma by the Nazis in the Third Reich in chronological and historical context. The permanent exhibition extends over 3 floors. The first one explains the persecution from 1922, the year of the "assumption of power" from the exclusion of this group from public life and the mass deportations towards Poland. The second floor describes the mass executions in southern and eastern Europe, as well as the medical experiments, the forced labor in the industrial firms and the deportations and the murder in Auschwitz-Birkenau. Often the historical events are explained through individual people's stories. The third floor is dedicated to the victims.
