Forum Willy Brandt Berlin
The Forum Berlin is a place of historical education and dialogue in the center of Berlin.
Commemorating the life and political legacy of Willy Brandt, who decisively influenced the development of Germany and Europe in the 20th century, is the focal point of our work. Our multifaceted programme of education and events covers a broad spectrum from historical subjects to current political issues. On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Peaceful Revolution, the special exhibition “Divided City. 1945–1990” will be displayed until October 2020.
Our online-biography allows visitors to retrace Willy Brandt’s fascinating development from a working-class youth in Lübeck and opponent of the Nazis to Governing Mayor of Berlin, Federal Chancellor, Nobel Peace Prize recipient and statesman held in high regard internationally. Educational offerings, such as tours or workshops for school classes, are available to groups by appointment. In addition to the programme of events, there are book presentations, small panel discussions and conversations as well as academic lectures.
