Topography of Terror: the historic site of the Nazi Terror System (SS and Police) and the perpetrators
Between 1933 and 1945 the most important agencies of the Nazi Terror System were located on the present-day terrain of Topography of Terror: the headquarters of the Secret State Police (Gestapo), the Secret Service of the SS (SD), the Reich Leadership of the SS and the Reich Security Main Office (RSHA). This site was the centre for planning and organisation of most of the Nazi mass-crimes, committed especially during the Second World War in the occupied countries.
The workshop will start with a guided tour through the exhibition giving the participants an overview of the terror apparatus of SS and Police, its personnel and their crimes. In working groups, participants are invited to analyse more deeply the structures of the perpetrators and their crimes.
