At this point in the Second World War was one of the forced labor camps of the Bochum Association. The foundations of a barracks are still preserved, also the art installation "Loud silence" reminds the camp inmates.
Meanwhile, the area - after temporary use as a landfill - a nice little park.

The memorial is well staged, u.a. with symbolic floor plans and sketches of survivors. Unfortunately something vandalized. At the end of 1944 Bochum had 200,000 inhabitants (today's urban area) 40,000 forced laborers - and hardly anyone wants to have noticed. Short detour from Parkband West.
