The Nazi Forced Labor Documentation Centre is an official ERIH Anchor Point

At a formal ceremony, the Nazi Forced Labor Documentation Center in Berlin celebrated its membership in the European Route of Industrial Heritage. It is the second Anchor Point of the ERIH Berlin Route of Industrial Heritage alongside the German Museum of Technology. At the same time, the new site complements the definition of industrial heritage with a fundamentally new perspective.

In the presence of State Secretary Dr. Torsten W?hlert and Gernot Klemm, Deputy District Mayor and District Councillor for Social and Youth Affairs in Treptow-K?penick, Dr. Christine Glauning, Head of the Documentation Centre, accepted the ERIH sign, which officially identifies the site as an Anchor Point, as presented by ERIH President Prof. Dr. Meinrad Maria Grewenig.

In her welcoming address, Christine Glaunig emphasized the particular responsibility of her institution in the context of a memorial effort that puts "industrial heritage" beyond fascinating architectural monuments. "All German industries deployed forced laborers during World War II. It remains a task to deal with the fates of those affected, but also with the scope of action of the beneficiaries."

The very location of the Documentation Centre, which is situated in an almost completely preserved Nazi forced labour camp in the middle of a residential district, urges visitors to address this aspect of German war crimes. Meinrad Maria Grewenig comments: "Keeping alive the memory of the atrocities of the Nazi regime as one of the dark pages of industrial heritage is an essential challenge of today".
