We commemorate those who were persecuted and murdered during National Socialist “euthanasia” and invite you to engage with history and the long-term effects of the murder of the sick.
International Place of Remembrance
Hadamar Memorial Museum commemorates those persecuted in the course of the Nazi “euthanasia” crimes. Between 1941 and 1945, nearly 15,000 people were murdered in what was the Hadamar killing centre at the time. Those who were murdered included mentally ill and disabled persons. They ranged from old to young; men, women and children.
They were brought to the centre from all across Germany as well as from many European countries. As a “euthanasia” memorial museum in Hesse, we fulfil a social responsibility. We are an international place of remembrance, a place dedicated to extracurricular as well as historical and political education and research.
We therefore warmly invite you to visit the historical site, but also to take advantage of our digital services. Together, let us remember those who were murdered and learn lessons from the past for the present and the future.
