"Jew-Houses" on Helmstedter Straße

District: Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf
Address before 1945: Helmstedter Straße 23/24
Address today: Helmstedter Straße 23/24, 10717 Berlin

Here, in 1943 and 1944, Jews were forced to live under catastrophic, ghetto-like conditions. Under guard, they were compelled to await deportation. At that time, 52 families were living in the building at Helmstedter Straße 23 alone.
The writer Anna Seghers (1900-1983) had lived in the building next door (No. 24) from 1928 to 1933.
