This tour offers a ‘cross-sectional cut’ through war and peace in German history from the Thirty Years War up to the World Wars of the 20th Century. What were the reasons for war breaking out? What kinds of warfare existed through the centuries? And how is peace established afterwards? These important questions are drawn into sharper focus through authentic exhibition objects that clarify the historical background of conflicts and their settlement. The main focus is on a critical analysis of historical accounts, whilst also allowing for a discussion of contemporary / future perspectives on war and peace.
