Memorials are places with a strong connection to a memorable event or a person worthy of a memory, which have been designed structurally or horticulturally as a monument or memorial.

The victims of war and tyranny are remembered by a large number of memorials in Lower Saxony - mostly in authentic places of human rights violations.
Exhibitions in the individual institutions are intended to convey the concrete forms of human rights violations and to illustrate the suffering of the victims as far as possible.

In addition, the graves of the victims of war and tyranny are memorials against the war and against the destruction it causes. They can be found in many municipalities in Lower Saxony.
