Abstract This essay examines how the Second World War can be remembered through archeology at two tourism sites in Berlin. Through data collected from site visits and observations, the motifs of burial, authenticity, and historical value are found to engage directly with ongoing negotiations of remembering the Second World War. This contributes a revised way of examining cultural remembering through material traces of the war on Berlin's urban environment.
