Zentralfriedhof Friedrichsfelde

Local nameZentralfriedhof Friedrichsfelde
LocationLichtenberg, Berlin, Germany

The Friedrichsfelde Central Cemetery, also known as the Memorial to the Socialists, is a cemetery in the borough of Lichtenberg in Berlin. When the cemetery was founded in 1881 it was called the Freidrichsfelde Municipal Cemetery Berlin. In 1919, with the burial of Wilhelm Liebknecht, founder of the Social Democratic Party, the cemetery became the resting place for many of the leaders and activists of Germany's social democratic, socialist and communist movements. In 1919, Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg, co-founders of the Communist Party of Germany, were buried there. The division of Berlin following the Second World War caused the cemetery to be within the borders of East Berlin, where it was used to bury East German leaders, such as Walter Ulbricht and Wilhelm Pieck, the first President of the GDR.
