This website features interactive maps of the city showing 50 locations where people were persecuted during the National Socialist dictatorship in central Hanover. Sightseeing tours focusing on specific themes bring to life the racist persecution of Jewish and Sinti people. They reveal the meeting places and buildings associated with Hanover’s prominent workers’ movement and show how public administration departments and museums profited from financial looting and confiscated art. As what ultimately ended in Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen began in the midst of German society and in full view of its citizens.
