With this exhibition the city museum shows hidden things from its archives. Just like a kaleidoscope, it mirrors Linz in many different facets, and creates new interconnections between its exhibits. An open narrative offers exciting insights into the history of the city. All exhibits are part of the museum’s own collection, and stand for a time, or an event, that is somehow connected to Linz.
World War II ended more than 75 years ago. Unleashed by Adolf Hitler and his National Socialists, it was by far the bloodiest war in modern history. The number of its victims exceeded 60 million, with civilians accounting for more than half of that number. More than six million Jews were systematically murdered by the Nazis, hundreds of thousands fell victim to racist and political persecution.
