Memorials commemorate the victims of National Socialism and other forms of tyranny and persecution. They are the physical foundation of the culture of remembrance. They rescue names and people from oblivion and thus ensure that the persecutors do not have the last word. Memorials and memorial signs make history tangible in one’s own environment. They warn those born after them never to give in to inhumanity.
Since its establishment, the Arnold Liebster Foundation has been committed to commemorating the victims of National Socialism. It has supported numerous memorials and remembrance projects and promoted the creation of the Max Liebster Memorial. Since the mid-2010s, it has been campaigning with other survivors, experts and committed individuals for the Federal Republic of Germany to erect a memorial to Jehovah’s Witnesses persecuted and murdered under National Socialism under the auspices of the Foundation Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe.
