Scars and legacy of the single most destructive conflict in human history and the following years of Cold War (with a Trabi drive included).
Berlin may now be a burgeoning cultural centre with vibrant art, food and music scenes, but this decidedly complex capital’s darker past is never far from sight. Rather than attempt to pave over their troubled history, both the city and its inhabitants make a point of remembering World War II and the events that led to the rise of the Third Reich. Delve into the fascinating, often disturbing details of the period at these three exceptionally curated museums.
Although World War II officially ended on May 8, 1945, there was still much work to be done after the official defeat of the Third Reich. Europe lay in waste, with more than 30 million displaced persons roaming the ruined continent. After witnessing the rise of fascism from the ashes of World War I, Allied forces wanted to ensure that Germany stabilised as quickly as possible. The Allied Museum examines the complicated process of rebuilding, as well as the escalating conflict between the Soviet Union and the United States during the time.
The brutal conflict between the German and Soviet military forces took an immense toll on both nations. The museum commemorates the casualties on both sides, as well as the historic events that led to the unconditional surrender of the Third Reich. Fittingly, the building resides on the spot where officials signed the paperwork on May 9, 1945. Military history buffs will be especially intrigued by the insights into the daily lives of soldiers, as well as the collection of Soviet propaganda photos, and an original Soviet T34 tank.
Along with the striking, modernist Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, this in-depth museum honours the victims of the Holocaust and seeks to educate the public in order to prevent such a tragedy from reoccurring. Opened in 2001, the Jewish Museum contains over 3,000 square metres of permanent exhibition space, as well as rotating exhibitions featuring contemporary art installations and insights into Jewish cultural history. Renowned architect Daniel Libeskind designed the jarring, zinc-panelled building in Kreuzberg.
