Exhibition in Brunswick State Museum

Vitrinen / Ausstellung

From January 16th to June 30th 2018, the Brunswick State Museum (Braunschweigische Landesmuseum) is showing the touring exhibition »HEIMATSUCHER. Survival stories of the Holocaust for a world without racism « from HEIMATSUCHER e.V.

On the basis of twelve contemporary witness portraits, the exhibition tells stories about life before, during and after the Holocaust and encourages visitors to dive deeper into the history of the Nazi regime- and to fight racism today. The exhibition is aimed primarily at students from the 4th grade upwards, who get to know the survivers’ stories and become witnesses of the contemporary witnesses themselves.

In letters to the survivors, the visitors can express their feelings that the exhibition triggered. The letters are collected and sent to the portrayed survivors.

The travelling exhibition is integrated into the previous presentation of the Brunswick State Museum to the 1950s and 1960s in Germany and thus forms the contrast to the then mood of reconstruction and economic boom, which prevailed in the first decades after the war.
