Threads of Memory

Threads of Memory Exhibit

Opened in December 2019, this exhibit introduces and unite themes that run throughout our other permanent and temporary exhibitions. Between 1933 and 1945 people, nations, and ideas entangled like never before, and emerged transformed. 

Visitors are invited to view an art installation that uses colored threads as a visual metaphor to convey how transformations occurred in individuals' lives as well as in:

  • Geography
  • Politics
  • Society
  • Economics
  • Culture
  • Technology

The new exhibition also emphasizes an essential truth about history and material culture:

  • The same objects and images can tell very different stories depending on the perspective of the interpreter and of the viewer.
