In Spite of Everything – 1848: Workshops for schoolchildren
Experience the events of the Berlin Revolution of 1948 differently (for once): Next to Frankfurt’s Paulskirche (church) and the Rastatt fortress, the cemetery of the Märzgefallenen (of those who perished in the March Revolution) in Berlin’s Volkspark Freidrichshain is one the most significant sites of remembrance for the Revolution of 1848. In addition to the 255 victims of the March Revolution, 33 victims of the Berlin November Revolution of 1918 are also buried here. Long neglected, the cemetery, now in the care of the Paul Singer organization (e.V.) has since become an enlivened place for exchange and civic education. The exhibit Am Grundstein der Demokratie (At the foundation of democracy) serves as the center of the site and as a starting point for our workshops with schools and for tours.
