Long Description:
On May 27, 1984, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Theological Declaration of Barmen this memorial was unveiled at the corner of "Werth" and Rödergasse in Wuppertal-Barmen. It commemorates the brave and upright men of the church, who in the Barmen Declaration turned against the influence of Nazi ideology and founded the Confessing Church ("Bekennende Kirche").

The memorial was created by Ulle Hees. It consists of a bronze cube, which is mounted on a 1.50 m high pedestal. We see a group of people. At the front people raise their arms to the Nazi salute, while those at the rear turn away and look towards the Gemarker Kirche where the Barmen Declaration was signed in May 1934.
