Saxon Memorial Foundation
We develop, sponsor and administer sites in the Free State of Saxony evocative of heinous political crimes, of political persecution, of state terror and state-organised murders of historical significance and implications within and beyond the region. We commemorate victims of political tyranny and the resistance against dictatorships. We keep records for the public.
The memorials of the foundation will remain closed to the public until November 30th, 2020 as part of the preventive measures by the Saxon government to curb the spread of the Corona virus. However, the memorial is staffed, so that telephone inquiries and inquiries by post or e-mail will be answered by the staff.
