GHS - Memories of a Symbol of Resistance

In 2012, refugees and activists occupied the former Gerhart Hauptmann School in Kreuzberg to protest the government's restrictive asylum policy. The protest marked a high point in the social struggles for the rights of refugees in Germany and attracted nationwide attention. In July 2014, the school was evicted. Today - seven years after the occupation - the building is still empty.

In partnership with International Women* Space, the Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg Museum looks at the occupation, which has become an important part of contemporary history for the district and beyond. In March 2021, former squatters and supporters met, talked about their experiences and took stock of the events. The joint discussion was held in the former Gerhart Hauptmann School and documented on film.

The project was supported by the Verein zur Erforschung und Darstellung der Geschichte Kreuzbergs e.V. and funded by the Bezirkskulturfonds Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg.

The result can be seen here.
