About the Programme Focus

2020 sees the 75th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, while the signing of the State Treaty lies 65 years in the past. To mark these two historically striking events, we plan a programme focus titled 55 Hours of Austria that spans individual institutions, taking place from May 7–9, 2020. Besides the History Museum, a range of institutions will be involved, including the Archaeology Museum, the Alte Galerie, CLIO, the Forum Stadtpark, the Graz Opera and the Styrian Provincial Library, bringing exhibitions, special tours, talks with eye-witnesses, book presentations, performances, lectures, literature and music to the planned programme. The point of the undertaking is to reach as many people as possible through a common calendar of events and to heighten awareness of these historically relevant occurrences.
