It is a memorial place!
From WikiPedia: de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahnmal_Bittermark
Located in the city forest Bittermark, the memorial commemorates the murders of the Gestapo in Rombergpark and Bittermark. In the days of Easter 1945, from March 7 to April 12, about 300 people were murdered on a clearing in the Bittermark, in the Rombergpark and on the railway area between Hörde and Berghofen. On 13 April 1945 Dortmund was occupied by the American troops. On April 19, 1945, the exhumation of the bodies in the Bittermark began. The killed were forced laborers from France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Yugoslavia, Poland and the Soviet Union, and German resistance fighters who were abducted from the Hörder Gestapo cellar and the Steinwache to the Rombergpark and Bittermark and murdered there.
