In 2014, on the historic grounds of the former administrative headquarters of the T4 programme at the address "Tiergartenstraße 4", the "Memorial and Information Point for the Victims of the National Socialist 'Euthanasia' Killings" was opened. The memorial consists of a 24-metre-long wall made of clear, light blue glass and set into a dark grey concrete surface that gently slopes towards the centre. An outdoor exhibition provides information about the history of the "euthanasia" killings and their impact to the present day.

The Memorial was opened to the public on 2 September 2014.
It is freely accessible to people with and without disabilities by day and by night.
