Political opponents initially resisted, Jewish families fled to neighbouring countries or left Europe altogether. For those who stayed behind, the situation became increasingly dangerous.
The exhibition also remembers the patients of medical institutions in Bonn, many of whom were systematically killed (euthanasia crimes 1939-1945). It also illustrates the living conditions of almost 10,000 forced laborers and prisoners of war who were displaced to Bonn.
The non-profit association for the Bonn Memorial Center was founded in 1984, and an initial temporary exhibition was established in Bad Godesberg. Since 1996, a permanent exhibition has been located in Franziskanerstraße 9 and updated regularly. The Memorial Center became a municipal institution in 2021; the former institutional association has been transformed into a support association.
