Today, Freiburg is known as a liberal and tolerant city, a stronghold of Germany´s green party. Thus, it is almost unimaginable what happened there 90 years ago. While you were walking the streets of Freiburg, passing the old synagogue on your way, have you ever been wondering what happened there during the dreadful night in 1938? Did you visit the Münster market, the exact same place where huge Nazi rallies took place? Did you admire the medieval buildings in the towns center that were almost completely destroyed by bombing raids during the war?

The documentary “Freiburg im Nationalsozialismus” is examining the events in Freiburg during the years 1933 until 1945. You will learn about the university’s Nazification, the terror against the Jewish population and the resistance groups that operated in the Wiehre quarter. Participants will be sent the link to watch the 20 minute documentary in advance. The Zoom event will include a discussion with student director, Carla Mallmann, of University College Freiburg.
