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.

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