German History from the Middle Ages to the Fall of the Berlin Wall
Jan 1 - Dec 31 2020
Are you ready for some history? This permanent exhibition at the DHM takes the visitor on a tour of this most historic country, a fantastic yet sensitive look at more than a millennia of history. Two floors of artefacts are waiting, the first of which covers everything from the Middle Ages until the the end of World War I, which tells you how much happened in the 20th century, but lets not wash over that first collection. The Middle Ages, the Reformation, the German Empire, World War I; that is a heck of a lot of history. The ground floor covers the Nazi regime and the post-war period, arguably the most intensely documented period in modern history. More than 7,000 exhibits shed light on all of this, a stunning exhibition focused on political history shaped by human beings, both in power and out.
