Oskar Schindler – bon vivant and lifesaver

07.06. – 27.10.2024

The Sudeten German entrepreneur Oskar Schindler (1908-1974) and his wife Emilie saved 1,200 Jews from the Nazi extermination camps. This act of humanity and civil courage only became known to the general public in 1993 with the feature film Schindler’s List. To mark the 50th anniversary of Oskar Schindler’s death, the Sudeten German Museum is organising a special exhibition to tell the story of his rescue operation and illustrate the life of a man with charisma and contradictory character traits.

The exhibition catalogue is available here.

I am a bit of a magician … Otfried Preußler’s story worlds

21.07. – 12.11.2023

“I am a bit of a magician …”, said Otfried Preußler about his work as a writer. The Little Water Sprite and The Little Witch, The Robber Hotzenplotz and Krabat are classics of German-language children’s and youth literature and continue to enchant children and adults to this day. Preußler found his story materials and characters in his northern Bohemian homeland, the Jizera Mountains. To mark the 100th anniversary of the author’s birth, the Sudeten German Museum is looking for traces of him in a special exhibition.
