The German Resistance Memorial Center (Gedenkstätte Deutscher Widerstand) is located in the Bendler Block in Berlin’s Mitte district, at the historic site of the attempted coup of July 20, 1944. On the initiative of the circle of resistance fighters of July 20, 1944, the Berlin Senate in 1967 resolved to establish a memorial and educational center intended to inform the public about resistance to National Socialism. The permanent exhibition was then opened on July 20, 1968. Since 1989, the German Resistance Memorial Center's permanent exhibition has been a central site of remembrance in Germany, providing extensive documentation of the motives, aims, and forms of the fight against the National Socialist dictatorship.
The wing of the building complex along the Landwehrkanal has been the Berlin office of the German Federal Ministry of Defense since 1993. Since 1992, the German Resistance Memorial Center has expanded beyond the commemorative courtyard and the permanent exhibition and has acquired further space for temporary exhibitions in the first upper floor on Stauffenbergstrasse.
