Clean Up Your Mess - A Guide to Visual Design for Everyone Gedenkstätte Papestraße The former SA Prison Papestrasse is the only historical site of early Nazi terror in Berlin where unequivocal traces from the year 1933 can still be found. The premises at Papestrasse were originally used as a utility building for the Prussian Railway Regiments. From March to December 1933 it was the site of an early concentration camp run by the SA Field Police (SA-Feldpolizei). At this site, the men of the SA (Sturmabteilung, or Storm Troopers) arrested, interrogated and tortured above all political opponents, Jews and other groups persecuted by the Nazi regime. The names of almost 500 persons who were imprisoned in Papestrasse are presently known. For the most part, the rooms used for imprisonment are still in their original condition. Since March 2013 there is an exhibition on location that documents the history of the SA Prison Papestrasse. The exhibition has been supported by funds from the German Lottery Foundation, Stiftung Deutsche Klassenlotterie Berlin.

7 Tips for Naming Your Business Entrepreneurs fret over packaging and a host of other details as they get started, and then leave one of the most important aspects as an afterthought. The sad truth is that the right name can sometimes make all the difference when it comes to propelling a business to success, rather than just slogging on. Consider this: Would you like "Patagonian toothfish" on your plate tonight for dinner? Hmm… not so much? Names are quite powerful. Here are seven things I consider when determining a business-related name: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. If you really want to get advanced, try to come up with a name that could be eventually used as a verb, or lends itself to the creation of your own "language." Think it through, and your name will be a multiplier in your favor.

Verborgene Erinnerung - Berlin vis-à-vis Festumzug der Gartengemeinschaft um 1960, im Hintergrund der Schwerbelastungskörper [Foto: Gartengemeinschaft Papestraße e.V.] Die Gegend rund um den 2006 eröffneten Bahnhof Südkreuz ist noch nicht so recht im öffentlichen Bewusstsein angekommen. Dabei ballen sich hier auf engstem Raum Erinnerungen an gut 150 Jahre deutsche Geschichte. Darauf weist jetzt ein Geschichtsparcours hin. Es sieht unscheinbar aus, das Haus am Werner-Voß-Damm mit der Nummer 54a. Einige kleine Gewerbebetriebe haben hier ihre Büros, und nur eine Gedenktafel weist auf die schreckliche Vergangenheit des Gebäudes hin: Seine Keller dienten in den Monaten nach Hitlers Machtergreifung 1933 als KZ, in dem die SA-Feldpolizei Oppositionelle und Juden folterte und tötete. Einst befanden sich hier Felder von Bauern aus dem damals selbständigen Dorf Schöneberg. Um sich die Ballonfahrt vorzustellen, braucht man viel Phantasie. Auch die Nachkriegsgeschichte hat an der Papestraße ihre Spuren hinterlassen. Emil Schweizer
