Russia and Germany. From Confrontation to Cooperation

An exhibition on the occasion of the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II

A multitude of varied events shaped the rapprochement of Germans and Russians after the end of World War II. Cooperation between the German-Russian Museum Berlin-Karlshorst and the State Archive of the Russian Federation has produced an exhibition that focuses on important landmarks in the post-1945 process of reconciliation of these former enemies. The trends in their mutual relationship are reflected in historical documents and biographies. Visitors learn what 14 pathfinders on the road to German-Russian understanding had to say, among them authors Lev Kopelev and Heinrich Böll. The exhibition was prompted by the 70th anniversary this year of the end of the World War II.

Organizer The German-Russian Museum Berlin-Karlshorst in cooperation with the State Archive of the Russian Federation
