Denkort Bunker Valentin

The “Valentin” bunker in Bremen-Farge was one of the largest armament projects of National Socialist Germany. From 1943 to 1945, thousands of forced labourers from all over Europe worked on the bunker construction site. For decades, there was a dispute about the post-war use of the submarine yard created by that forced labour. Even the demolition of the oversized concrete hall was considered.

In the 1960s, the German Navy finally used parts of the building as a material depot and the bunker site could only be entered with restrictions. After the German Navy moved out, the Senate of the City of Bremen commissioned the State Agency for Civic Education (Landeszentrale für politische Bildung) in 2010 to set up and operate the “Denkort Bunker Valentin” as a place of historical knowledge transfer, a memorial and a place of learning.
