Willy Brandt 1913-1992. A Life for Freedom, Peace and Reconciliation between Nations

The international touring exhibition

As opponent of the Nazis, Federal Chancellor, Nobel Prize laureate and international statesman, Willy Brandt always stood tirelessly on the side of peace, freedom and solidarity. He left behind a rich political legacy that, still today, is ground-breaking in many aspects.

Concentrating on ten historical places and events in his life, the international touring exhibition demonstrates Brandt’s political philosophy and actions.

The exhibition leads its viewers around the globe and through world history: To places like Oslo as the city of émigrés during the Nazi era, Berlin as a divided city and Moscow as the site of diplomatic negotiations during the Cold War.

A further stele is dedicated to Brandt’s relationships with the respective host country.

To mark the 50th anniversary of Willy Brandt’s chancellorship, the international touring exhibition was inaugurated on 15 September 2020 at the German Historical Institute in Moscow. It is expected to be on display worldwide until 2025.
