Communism in its Time
The year 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the October Revolution. Commemorating this occasion, the exhibition 'Communism in its Time' depicts the rise and fall of the Communist movement, which embarked on an attempt to fundamentally change not only the entire world, but humanity itself throughout the 20th century. This totalitarian aspiration mobilised millions around the globe, while becoming a nightmare for countless millions more who became victims of violent Communist regimes. The exhibition comprises 25 DIN A1 exhibition panels available in German, English, French, Russian and Spanish. An accompanying twelve-page booklet, as well as a poster and leaflet advertising the exhibition, can be downloaded as PDF files.

Revolution and the Fall of the Wall
The Robert-Havemann-Gesellschaft originally presented this exhibition at Berlin Alexanderplatz in 2009; it has been on display as a permanent open-air exhibition at the former Stasi headquarters in Berlin-Lichtenberg since 15 June 2016.
The exhibition documents the key stages of the GDR's peaceful revolution - from the initial protests and the fall of the Wall to German unity - and can also be viewed online.
Flight in Divided Germany
The permanent exhibition 'Flight in Divided Germany' is grouped into seven subject areas, shedding light on the reasons for leaving, the actual passage to the West, conditions at the Marienfelde refugee transit camp, as well as arrival in West Germany. At the end of the exhibition tour, reconstructed refugee living quarters complete with original 1950s-era furniture illustrate the living conditions of those staying in Marienfelde. Each subject area can be viewed individually on the website. Guided tours are held on Sundays at 3pm; additional appointments can be arranged for groups.
