At our museum you can experience the homeland in a new way.
This is the homeland of the Sudeten Germans.
The Sudeten Germans come from Bohemia,
Moravia and Sudeten-Silesia.
These places are now in Czechia.
Czechia is a neighbour country of Germany.
The native language of Sudeten Germans is German.
A native language is a language you learn from birth.
Most Sudeten Germans now live in Germany.
This is because of the end of World War 2.
That was in 1945.
At that time the Sudeten Germans had to leave their homeland.
The government of Czechoslovakia said:
The Sudeten Germans must leave Czechoslovakia.
At that time Czechoslovakia was the name of the state
where the Sudeten Germans lived.
State is a different word for country.
This country does not exist anymore.
Today it is two states:
Czechia and Slovakia.
The Sudeten German Museum has a lot of information about the Sudeten Germans.
For example you can find out how people used to live there.
You will also see many objects from that time.
By objects we mean photos and letters, for example.
Also painted pictures and drawings.
You can also listen to music from that time.
The objects belong to the art and culture
of the Sudeten Germans.
The museum has a big exhibition.
The exhibition shows how the Sudeten Germans lived.
It looks back on 1100 years of history.
That is how long Sudeten Germans lived there.
That is a very long time.
The permanent exhibition at the museum is called: Homeland.
The Sudeten German Museum explains:
How the Germans lived in Bohemia,
Moravia and Sudeten‑Silesia.
Those are the 3 areas where the Sudeten Germans lived.
These areas are now part of Czechia.
The exhibition is split into three topics.
These are the topics:
Germans, Czechs and Jews lived together in the past.
That was special about Bohemia, Moravia and Sudeten-Silesia.
The Sudeten German Museum explains this history.
The museum also shows:
That is what the homeland was like.
It was a special homeland in Europe.
The reason was:
All these people shaped their own homeland.
They had their own songs and dances, for example.
And cooked food with their own recipes.
The special term for this is cultural landscape.
This cultural landscape is important for all of Europe.
The Sudeten German Museum has a lot of information
Every piece of information has been checked.
Employees of the museum checked:
Was it really like that?
The museum worked with many experts on this.
These experts are called scientists.
The museum uses modern aids.
This means films and audio recordings, for example.
An audio recording can be a speech by a politician, for example.
You can listen to an audio recording.
The building is also very modern.
It looks very special.
And remains in your memory.
