Public support for the museum, however, grew. In 1992, the government of Berlin incorporated the Foundation Topography of Terror to build and administer a permanent museum at the site (Rürup 2002). This foundation, which included a number of communities, schools and churches, political parties, trade unions, citizens’ groups, and history workshops, set up the Memorial Museum Department, which works with other groups and institutions seeking to recover the memory of Nazi atrocities throughout the German Republic.

In 1985, a citizen’s group called the Active Museum of Fascism and Resistance issued an appeal: “Let’s dig. . Let no grass grow over it” (Meyer 1992:28). The group began an archaeological excavation to draw attention to the Nazi past and to recover the memory of the crimes of fascism in time for the celebration of Berlin’s 750-year anniversary, in 1987. Many in Berlin and in Germany opposed the excavations, because they did not want this past memorialized or even revealed. Despite much opposition, the Active Museum of Fascism and Resistance continued its illicit excavation.

On the basis of the results of this survey, the court ordered archaeological excavations at the site starting in March 2003. The excavators worked under difficult and rushed conditions, producing a final report by August of that year. The court ordered the two-volume descriptive report of the excavations sealed, releasing only a summary final report. This report indicated the discovery of a large building under the mosque, and nationalists leaped on this finding as evidence for the temple of Rama.
