Kiezgespräch – Life at and with the Berlin Wall

20 June | 6 pm | FHXB Museum

35 years after the fall of the Wall, Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg belong together as a matter of course. From 1961 to 1989, however, the neighbourhoods were separated by the Wall and border fortifications. How did the neighbourhoods develop during the division? How did people in Friedrichshain and Kreuzberg view the division of the city? And what did the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 mean for the local people? The Berlin Commissioner for the Reappraisal of the SED Dictatorship (BAB) explores these and other questions in its event series "My neighbourhood. History(s) of Divided Berlin". The series will stop off in Kreuzberg in June.

On 20 June 2024, 6 pm, a neighbourhood discussion with historian Anna von Arnim-Rosenthal and contemporary witnesses Bettina Rathenow and Sanem Kleff will take place at the museum. Bettina Rathenow was a co-founder of the opposition group Women for Peace in the GDR and a participant in the Round Table in Friedrichshain in 1989/90. Sanem Kleff, a teacher of Turkish origin, worked at a secondary school in Kreuzberg from 1981. Today she heads the "School without Racism - School with Courage" project. The discussion will be moderated by BAB speaker Dr Philipp Schultheiß.


Führung in Kreuzberg zur Spurensuche jüdischen Lebens und der Familie Mamlok

22. Juni | 15:00 Uhr | U-Hallesches Tor

Am 22. Juni findet eine Führung im Bezirk Kreuzberg mit Miklas Weber statt, bei der anhand geographischer Bezugspunkte die Geschichte von Eva Mamlok erzählt wird.


Ein Rundgang in der „Südlichen Friedrichstadt“ rund um die Lindenstraße und dem Mehringplatz zur Spurensuche jüdischen Lebens und der Familie Mamlok, zu Stätten der Arbeiterbewegung während der Weimarer Republik und des Widerstands während der NS-Zeit. Wo war die Mamlok & Söhne Wein AG in der Markgrafenstraße und wo stand das Haus, in dem die Mamloks seit ca. 1916 bis zur Deportation im Oktober 1942 lebten und Martha Mamlok seit 1932 ihre Weinhandlung hatte? Um die Ecke das Vorwärtsgebäude, das zwar den Zweiten Weltkrieg überstand, aber nicht die Neubebauung des Mehringplatzes in den 1960/70er Jahren. Im Gegensatz dazu das Haus des Deutschen Metallarbeiterverbandes („IG-Metall-Haus“), das nach Plänen von Erich Mendelsohn erbaut wurde und heute noch steht.

Länge: ca. 2 km Dauer: ca. 90 Minuten


Teilnehmerzahl begrenzt (max. 15 Personen). Um Anmeldung wird geben unter

Inauguration of Audre Lorde Street and a memorial to Audre Lorde

28 June | 5 pm – 7 pm | Intersection Audre-Lorde-Straße/Muskauer Straße, 10997 Berlin (near underground station Görlitzer Bhf.)

The African-American lesbian feminist, campaigner and poet Audre Geraldine Lorde (1934-1992) had a significant influence on the Black women's* movement worldwide with her work against homophobia, sexism and racism. She was a professor at Hunter College, co-founder of various organisations and was awarded a visiting professorship at the John F. Kennedy Institute for North American Studies at the Free University of Berlin in 1984. Between 1984 and 1992, she often spent time in West Berlin, including in Kreuzberg. Here she gave readings and lectures, called for a fight against racism and encouraged Black women to make their own history visible.

In February 2019, the district parliament of Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg decided to name a street after Audre Lorde. Based on a public consultation, it chose the northern section of Manteuffelstraße. Audre-Lorde-Straße is now being officially inaugurated.

"German Labour" - Concepts, Ideologies and Practices in Colonialism, National Socialism and Migration Regimes after 1945

04 July | 6 pm | FHXB Museum

With the event series "Forced labour (post)colonial", the FHXB Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg Museum and its cooperation partners are focusing on historical exploitation through labour. This will open up a discussion about overlaps, continuities, breaks and differences in forced labour in different regimes.


The first event will focus on national policies, ideologies and practices of labour. The concept of "German labour" constructs a national community. This notion devalues, oppresses and marginalises "the others".



Eva Mamlok Group – Histories of Resistance

Duration: 14 June – 22 September 2024

In the early 1930s, there were already brave young women in Berlin’s Kreuzberg district standing up to Nazism. One of them was Eva Mamlok, a Jewish teenager who performed everyday acts of resistance against the Nazi regime – first alone, and then alongside other young women. They formed networks, distributed leaflets, wrote slogans on walls, and organized an underground library.

As Jews, they were persecuted and enslaved. For their antifascist activism, they were arrested and deported. Yet even in the most terrible circumstances, they never stopped resisting.

Until now their story has barely been told, partly because very few sources and documents exist – besides the testimonies from Inge Gerson-Berner, the only member of the group who survived the Holocaust. This exhibition will present an extensive, never-before-seen body of scholarship compiled by a network of citizen researchers. It brings together historical documents, photographs, and eyewitness accounts that invite visitors to revisit the past while exposing the gaps and holes in the record. It carves out space for questions and debate and seeks to raise awareness of the crucial role women played in the resistance against Nazi tyranny.


Audre Lorde – The Berlin Years

extended until 08 September | 6pm | FHXB Museum

The African-American lesbian poet and activist Audre Geraldine Lorde (1934-1992) had a significant influence on the Black women's movement worldwide with her work against homophobia, sexism and racism. Audre Lorde often spent time in West Berlin between 1984 and 1992. Here she gave readings and lectures, called for a fight against racism and encouraged Black women to make their own history visible.


To mark the renaming of a street after Audre Lorde, the FHXB Museum is showing the photo exhibition "Audre Lorde - The Berlin Years". This exhibition was originally shown in 2014-2015 at the John F. Kennedy Institute for North American Studies at Freie Universität Berlin, where Audre Lorde held a visiting professorship in 1984. The portraits by Dagmar Schultz show Audre Lorde in various places in and outside Berlin, both in private moments and in her socio-political commitment.


Intervention in the permanent exhibition "ortsgespräche - ferngespräche - ortsgeschichten"
Duration: Extended until 8 September 2024
