Support us

The Marienfelde Refugee Center Museum pursues many related duties and responsibilities: we collect and document, organise exhibitions, as well as communicate research and publish accounts of this important history.

Our work is supported by project funds made available by the federal state of Berlin and the German federal government. In addition, we regularly solicit financial contributions for our exhibitions, research projects and educational programs.

In order to realize our goals, we depend on additional contributions. We invite you to lend your support to our work, either as a private individual or as a company. Your contribution enables us to:

  • Maintain the permanent exhibition
  • Develop materials for educational programs and to offer special museum education programs
  • To put together a library open to all members of the public
  • To continue to record the testimonies of contemporary eyewitnesses
  • To develop new projects

We would be pleased to share with you detailed information about our work and special projects.

We are grateful for each and every donation. Even the smallest contributions are much appreciated!

Your Keepsakes!

Your financial contribution is only one important way you can support our work. We are just as pleased to receive your special remembrances documenting flight and legal departure from East Germany. Entrusting your documents and personal memorabilia to our museum helps to expand our historical collection.
