The joint survey of the Jewish Museum Munich and the Munich City Museum on the history of displaced persons opens up a new perspective on Munich in the post-war period. In its exhibition"Munich Displaced. Homeless after 1945", the Munich City Museum shows the forgotten fate of around one hundred thousand displaced persons (DPs) who were in the city in 1945. For the first time, the post-war history of former forced laborers, prisoners of war, political concentration camp prisoners and refugees is presented on the basis of broad-based research for the city and district of Munich. Educational institutions such as the international UNRRA University in the Deutsches Museum, the Ukrainian Free University or the Tolstoy Library were of great importance, as was the Ludwigsfeld housing estate. Personal photographs, audio recordings and video interviews give a face to the very different displaced persons from Eastern Europe. This reveals a gap in the culture of remembrance. Against the background of this state of research, the curators provide insights into the central exhibition themes and the conceptual ideas and thoughts.
Visitors have the opportunity to get to know both exhibitions. The offer can be combined with a curator-guided tour of"Munich Displaced. Der Rest der Geretteten" at the Jewish Museum Munich on the same day (starts at 13:30).
There and away - admission is free as part of the Munich City Museum's farewell program.
