Commemorating „50 Years since the Beginning of Willy Brandt’s Chancellorship” two touring exhibitions offer a new look at Willy Brandt’s life and political influence.
Opponent of the Nazis, Governing Mayor of Berlin, Federal Chancellor, Nobel Peace Prize laureate – the touring exhibitions mirror Willy Brandt’s fascinating life and the eventful history of Germany and Europe in the 20th century.
The national touring exhibition, „Willy Brandt – Freedom Fighter, Chancellor of Peace, Bridge Builder” has been touring Germany since the autumn of 2019. Its opening took place on 22 October in the German Federal parliament.
The international touring exhibition, „Willy Brandt 1913-1992. A Life for Freedom, Peace and Reconciliation between Nations” provides information on the most important stages and events of his life in the language of the respective exhibitioning country. Its opening took place on 15 September 2020 in the German Historical Institute Moscow.
Willy Brandt is one of the outstanding statesmen of the 20th century. He laid the groundwork for reconciliation with Germany’s eastern neighbours and was a passionate advocate for German and European unity. In addition he campaigned for global solidarity and understanding among nations.
Both exhibitions highlight Willy Brandt’s national and international engagement for issues such as peace, freedom and democracy.
From 10 June until 20 October the national touring exhibition can be seen at the Willy-Brandt-School Kassel.
