In 1992, the German government decided to erect a national memorial to the murdered European Sinti and Roma who were persecuted as »Gypsies«.

The Memorial by artist Dani Karavan consists of a well with a retractable stone on which a fresh flower is placed daily. Panels present information on the persecution and mass murder of this minority under the National Socialist regime of terror.

Opening Times: The Memorial is accessible 24 hours a day. 

The Memorial to the Sinti and Roma murdered under the National Socialist Regime is largely accessible.

Please note: Due to the barriers of the Public Viewing Event during the European Football Championship, the access to the Memorial is restricted from June 10 to July 10, 2016. We ask for your understanding.

Location: Simsonweg/Scheidemannstraße – between Brandenburg Gate and the Reichstag Building, 10557 Berlin.
