Summary of the German article “Der Tod der alten Stadt Braunschweig”.
Starting September 2nd to October 15th, 2019 the Städtische Museum Braunschweig (and five other places) hosts an exhibition on the devastating bombing of Brunswick on the night of October 15th in 1944.
The exhibition is subdivided into six chapters that are meant to distinguish the individual artist’s approach to the loss of the city.
The exhibition opened yesterday with formal addresses of the curator and principal supporters. The pictures shown are principally aquarelle, drawings and graphic reproductions of artists of that time.
