This 1893 neo-Gothic church was a hotbed of dissent in the final days of the GDR and thus a thorn in the side of the Stasi, which, as late as October 1989, brutally quashed a peaceful gathering outside its portals. Ernst Barlach's Geistkämpfer (Ghost Fighter, 1928) sculpture stands outside the church, which is usually closed except for concerts and Sunday services.
