Alter Schlachthof – Memorial Site

The (preserved) former large cattle hall of the Düsseldorf abattoir served as a collection centre during the Second World War: Almost 6,000 Jewish people from the region were deported from here to the ghettos in occupied East Central Europe. The memorial site documents these crimes at the historic site.
