Memorial Site Lübeck Martyrs


On November 10 1943, four Lübeck churchmen were beheaded in Hamburg:

The Lutheran Pastor Karl Friedrich Stellbrink and the Catholic Chaplains Hermann Lange, Eduard Müller and Johannes Prassek. The National Socialist People's Court had sentenced them to death in the summer of 1943 for "subversion of military strength, insidiousness, favoring the enemy, and listening to enemy transmissions."
The memorial site features a permanent exhibition with video and audio elements. The National Socialist reign of terror is illustrated through the specific biographies, beliefs and resistance of the four men. In addition, a treasury with exhibits from the estate of the Lübeck martyrs and the crypt can be visited as a place of reflection, prayer and silence.
