Memorial Persecution Jews

This memorial is the central memorial for the persecution of Jews in the Hanover region. It is the entrance of the Israelitic Horticulture School, which was used in the National Socialism era as Jews-house and Gestapo-prison. The prison was used for about 1200 inmates, mostly forced laborers and prisoners-of-war.
