A commemorative plaque between the main university building and the Freemansion´s building at Moorweidenstraße recalls the terrible function of this place in the time of the National Socialism. Here, at the "place of the deported Jewish people", a part of the Moorweide , Hamburg´s Jews had to gather before they were sent to the concentration camps in the east - Theresienstadt, Auschwitz, Minsk, Riga and Lodz. It was not before the eighties that a memorial and the commemorative plaque were set up at the square of the departed people.
