The Protestant Cemetery Lichtenrade is situated on the road Paplitzer 10-24 in the district of Lichtenrade of the district Tempelhof-Schöneberg of Berlin . It was created in 1906 after the church area around the village church Lichtenrade could no longer accommodate the numerous new settlers. The cemetery was expanded in the 1960s on the other side of Paplitzer Strasse and currently covers 82,547 m² (as of 2018). The old part of the cemetery is an avenue district cemetery with a large population of linden, maple and spruce trees. The newer part has a park-like character.

In 1920 the sculptor Heinrich Missfeldt could be won over to create a stately war memorial for the fallen of the community. 10,000  marks were collected for this.

One field unites 335 individual graves of victims from war and tyranny from both world wars. Then in 1996 three memorial plaques were added to commemorate the victims of National Socialism in Berlin-Lichtenrade. These include the victims from the Jewish population as well as the victims from the forced labor camps of the Sachsenhausen subcamp in Lichtenrade.
