Travelling exhibition "Landesväter. The Weimar Republic in the Regions" touring exhibition in Dessau-Roßlau from 23.08.-20.09.2023

The Adult Education Centre Dessau-Roßlau begins its autumn semester after the summer holidays with a new, broad-based educational programme. In this context, the Dessau-Roßlau Municipal Archive, in cooperation with the Adult Education Centre, presents the travelling exhibition “Landesväter. The Weimar Republic in the Regions” by the Society for the Study of the History of Democracy (GEDG).

The exhibition in the form of a multimedia station is dedicated to federalism in the Weimar Republic. On the one hand, it presents the state history of the respective region, but also focuses on decisive political actors of the Weimar years. The aim is to recall the supporters and defenders, but also the critics of the Republic, who are largely unknown today.

On 23 August 2023, at 5 p.m., Dr. Marc Bartuschka of the Society for the Study of the History of Democracy will open the touring exhibition with a verbal tour of the exhibition’s concept, the historical background of the Weimar region and its national fathers.

Accessible exhibition venue:
Multigenerational House,
Erdmannsdorffstr. 3,

23 August 2023 – 20 September 2023
Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Opening event:
Wednesday, 23 August 2023 at 5 p.m.

The exhibition can be visited free of charge during opening hours. The Stadtarchiv and the Volkshochschule Dessau-Roßlau cordially invite all interested parties to attend.
