Nuclear fission was discovered in December 1938 by chemists Otto Hahn and Fritz Strassmann and physicists Lise Meitner and Otto Robert Frisch. Fission is a nuclear reaction or radioactive decay process in which the nucleus of an atom splits into two or more smaller, lighter nuclei and often other particles. The fission process often produces gamma rays and releases a very large amount of energy, even by the energetic standards of radioactive decay. Scientists already knew about alpha decay and beta decay, but fission assumed great importance because the discovery that a nuclear chain reaction was possible led to the development of nuclear power and nuclear weapons.

The Protestant Martin Luther Memorial Church in Berlin's Mariendorf district is an architectural monument and testimony of a special kind. It was built from 1933 to 1935 on the basis of long-standing plans. In the design of the interior, state and church symbolism mixed, as can be seen to this day. For this reason, since about 2004, when the church hit the headlines due to its poor state of construction, it has occasionally been referred to in the press as a "Nazi church". The community itself sees the remains of this design in the zeitgeist of 1933 as a memorial and memorial.
