Democracy is the dominant theme of life at the DHM in 2019, and this special exhibition on the Weimar Republic and its contemporaries will engage and educate in equal measures. The time between the two wars was a fascinating one for good and bad reasons, with positive political developments (women’s suffrage, the evolution of compromise, unbiased treatment of sexuality and more) doing battle with conservative ideas and old-fashioned attitudes. The exhibition will help visitors get to grips with the true essence of democracy, through a fine range of artefacts. April 12 and 13 will be extra special, as the museum’s Democracy Events Days kicks in with free entrance and late opening times, headlined by a screening of ‘All Quiet on the Western Front’. We’ll see you there.
