About the exhibition

The second chapter of the exhibition 100 Years of Border is devoted to the time from 1919 to the end of the Second World War. Focus is on rising national tension, the National Socialist policy of shifting the border, as well as the eventual construction of the Iron Curtain.

The third part is to open in March 2019: it will begin with the period immediately following the Second World War and end with the year 2018.
