Torgau Documentation and Information Centre (DIZ)

“Traces of Injustice”

The permanent exhibition at the DIZ in Torgau has three sections, depicting the history of the city’s prisons and camps during both German dictatorships. Special attention is paid to the touching fates of the prisoners. Photos, documents and interview excerpts illustrate the impacts of political justice on the subjects of the dictatorships. Since 1991, the DIZ has remembered the victims of political justice and imprisonment in Torgau. It documents the history of prisons and camps in Torgau during the Nazi dictatorship, the Soviet occupation and the GDR. The DIZ in Torgau joined the Foundation of Saxon Memorials in 1999. Free special exhibitions, events, guided tours and educational activities can be arranged for groups and school classes.
