    Description :

    The church refers to the prison of Plötzensee (where people were tortured and murdered under Hitler’s dictatorship.)

    The cupola made of concrete reminds the worshipper of a prison cell. Light comes only from a single window right above the altar.

    The architecture shows influences of ideas that came up during a reform-period of the Protestant church in Germany during the 1960s: the benches are arranged in a square (quadrangle) around the altar in the centre.
