“Seduced, Abused and Sacrificed
An Exhibition from the Documentation Centre "Nazi Party Rally Grounds", Nuremberg
The Exhibition documents the history of the Hitler Youth, based on the fate of the Hitler Youth Paul Bayer, who died aged 17, while assisting the Flak Artillery during an Air Raid.
Despite the high demands of the strict military hierarchy, and its emphasis on obedience, duty, sacrifice and discipline towards the “Fuehrer” and the Fatherland, the Hitler Youth would still remain attractive to the youth. It promised an alternative to the day to day monotony of school and family life, by organizing camping trips and physical exercise.

“Witness and Victim of the Apocalypse”
The exhibition “Witness and Victims of the Apocalypse” focuses on the Austro-Hungarian Composer Viktor Ullmann (1898- 1944). It covers his time as an Artillery Observer in the Isonzo Valley during World War I, up to Ullmann’s fate during the “Third Reich”.
The Composer was sent to the Concentration Camp Theresienstadt in 1942, and was murdered later on in Auschwitz in 1944. He composed numerous Musical Pieces while staying in Theresienstadt, amongst them his most famous work “The Emperor of Atlantis, or The Refusal of Death”. The Exhibition shows how Ullmann dealt with his experiences of the First World War, especially the gas attacks during the 12th Battle of Isonozo. Strong emphasis is also made on new information discovered in the letters he sent to his girlfriend Anny Wottiz, many years ago.
On the 20th of October, remaining within the framework of the exhibition, the author Hannelore Brenner-Wonschick will read from her book “The Girl from Room 28”, in which young girls recount their experiences inside the Concentration Camp, Theresienstadt.

At the end of the Second World War about 2.8 million people worked for Germany as slaves and forced laborers. The deportation of polish forced laborers to Germany had already started after the German raid of Poland in September 1939. The people worked in agriculture as well as industry but also in small factories or in private households. The forced laborers had to live under inhuman conditions: they worked ten to twelve hours per day and received nearly no wage.
