The Exhibition

Friedhof der Märzgefallenen (cemetery) in Berlin is a memorial for the German March revolution from 1848 and German November revolution from 1918. On the 18th of March 1848, inhabitants of the city demonstrated for democratic rights and rebelled against the troops of the Prussian King Frederick William IV. More than 200 people fell during the insurrection, among them craftsmen, apprentices, workers, women and children.

November 1918 marks the transition from the Wilhelminian Empire to the Weimar Republic. The soldiers and workers marked by the war demonstrated against the imperial authorities and occupied important buildings in Berlin.
The park in Friedrichshain Berlin became a communal cemetery for the victims of both revolutions. A permanent exhibition within a 30 m long sea container informs about the events of March 1948. Various monuments like the "Red Sailor" (from 1961) recall the November revolution from 1918.
