Sobre

The exhibition focuses on a subject that is, sad to say, of ongoing relevance to us: right-wing terrorism is a threat in Germany and around the world, with violence directed against individuals and particular population groups and thus ultimately against the society as a whole. Right-wing terrorists plan and carry out attacks, assaults, and murders. Their aim is to weaken the state and society and generate a climate of fear. Drawing on local, regional, and international examples, the exhibition gives a visual account of the ongoing right-wing terrorist threat and places it in a historical context, along a timeline that runs from the past to the present and includes the Oktoberfest bombing of September 26, 1980, and the attack at Munich’s Olympia shopping mall on July 22, 2016. This makes clear that right-wing terrorism is not a temporary, local phenomenon confined to the present but a persistent feature of German and international history. The ramifications that right-wing terrorist violence has for those impacted by it are also thrown into relief: the process of mourning for the dead and injured, the traumas, and the painful struggle to acknowledge what has been suffered.
