Gay Center

The area around Nollendorfplatz was a main center of Gay-life in Berlin during the 1920s and 1930s (Weimar Republic). The Eldorado Night Club on Motzstraße was closed down by the Nazis on coming to power in 1933. Otto Dix used patrons of this establishment as subjects for some of his famous works. Christopher Isherwood lived just around the corner on Nollendorfstraße. This apartment was the basis for his book "Goodbye to Berlin" and later the film Cabaret and is commemorated by a plaque on the building.
