Welcome to the Info-Pavilion

Welcome to the Info-Pavilion

Since September 2013, the Info-Pavilion at the denk.mal Hannoverscher Bahnhof marks the site from where people were deported during National Socialism in Hamburg. Here, alongside an exhibition of the history of this site, information is presented about the development process of the memorial and Lohse Park, and the participation project titled “How do you want to commemorate?”   

On the day of the opening by the former Minister of Culture Prof. Barbara Kisseler, Jürgen Bruns-Berentelg, CEO of HafenCity Hamburg GmbH, and Ansgar Wimmer, chairman of the Alfred Toepfer Foundation FVS, Bernhard Effertz, chairman of the Jewish community, said the opening was a "happy day". It reminded him that the Jewish community of Hamburg is alive again. Rudko Kawczynski, chairman of the Rom and Cinti Union, said it is not a given that a city like Hamburg is so open to facing its past. 

Since 2014, scientific contributions, readings, and music have been inviting visitors into the Information Pavilion to approach the topic of deportation from different angles and thus re-discover the place. For information and tips, click "News".
