Based on the eventful history of the “Villa ten Hompel”, the new exhibition focuses on the massive scale of the involvement of uniformed police in the Second World War and the genocide against Jews and other groups, the denazification, but also continuities after 1945 as well as the prosecution of the crimes of the Nazis and the bureaucratic attempt at a "compensation" to formerly persecuted.
In essence, the visitors in the “Villa” are invited to debate how to deal with history in order to ponder about present and future challenges.
The exhibition was made possible only through financial support. We thank the following institutions for significant financial donations:
