The exhibition Munich and National Socialism examines the topics of the origins and rise of National Socialism in Munich, the special role of the city in the terror system of the dictatorship and the difficult process of coming to terms with the past since 1945. The guiding themes of the permanent exhibition include “Why Munich?”, “Exclusion and Persecution” and “What has this got to do with me?”.
The guided tour provides an overview of the four main sections of the permanent exhibition. It starts with the end of World War I and the outbreak of the November Revolution in 1918 and explains the emergence and rise of the NSDAP. This is followed by a brief presentation on the functioning of the Nazi state and living conditions during the regime. Subsequently, the effects of World War II are described. Finally the guided tour examines the effects and consequences of National Socialism to the present day.
