Historical films at the cinema and on TV attract many viewers and ticket sales. They reach a much wider audience than the printed word, exhibitions and other media do. "TV specials", often miniseries, guarantee success, creating an impact via personalisation, emotionalisation and dramatic intensity.
Films influence views on historical events and figures. Depending on when they are made, they add to or initiate social debates. The exhibition focuses on films and miniseries about the holocaust, World War II, resistance, German refugees, the economic rise in post-war (western) Germany, left-wing terrorism and the German Democratic Republic (GDR). It encourages its visitors to have a closer look on historical narratives in film.
