Bertl & Adele

Two Graz children in the Holocaust


Opening: 25.01.2018, 7 pm

Conception: ‘HAUS DER NAMEN. Holocaust- und Toleranzzentrum Österreich’


About the exhibition

The years of the Nazi rule meant terror, persecution and the murder of thousands of people in Styria, too. The exhibition Bertl & Adele shows the Holocaust through the example of two children from Graz: Bertl, whose flight took him through three continents, and who survived it all, and Adele, who to begin with fled with her family to France, only eventually to be murdered in Auschwitz after all.

This exhibition has been taken over from the ‘HAUS DER NAMEN. Holocaust- und Toleranzzentrum Österreich’ and represents the first exhibition offered over a longer period by the Universalmuseum Joanneum addressing National Socialism.
