  • We were as a group accompanied by an employee of the House, was alive and real impact of the guided tour through their own experiences. Many exhibits in that time - put a very poignant and emotional. An exhibition alone more than once can look at and should.

  • I've lived 16 years in Germany (1961-1977) love. It tries to reflect modern German history, the reality of the two Germanys, its unification and the development of the two, until its unification.

  • On a rainy day, I visited the Haus der Geschichte in Bonn. With what few resources we came out 40 years ago and have survived it well made thought-provoking me. I put myself at the sight of the many exhibits back in my childhood. It is really worth a visit, especially for young people, to see how their parents once lived. I was not the last time there.
