Themeninsel zur Revolution 1918/19

Many of the Berliners who took to the streets on 18 March 1848 for a better life were simple, often young people. Most of them were bitterly poor. Numerous apprentices, craftsmen and workers were there, including some women. They were all united by the courage to use their lives for social improvements and civil liberties.

255 victims of the Berlin March Revolution are buried in the Cemetery of the March Revolution. The cemetery was built especially for them. It is not only an authentic place of the revolutionary events, but was consciously created as a monument in memory of the revolution and the fallen barricade fighters.

In November and December 1918 the first victims of the 1918/19 revolution were buried in the Cemetery of the March Revolution. It was thus a memorial for two revolutions and still stands today for the epoch-spanning struggle for freedom and co-determination.
