Exploring on one's own

Tracing history: "4-2-1"

Four zones of occupation, two German States and reunited Germany since 1989 – How has Germany changed since 1945? In which ways has division and unity of Germany affected people? How did young people experience these historic events and how do you personally relate to that? 

The self-guided tour “4-2-1 – The division and unity of Germany“ invites young people to explore these questions in the permanent exhibition. At eight stations, students can investigate original objects, documents and photos and discover history’s relevance for their own lives today.
