Frankfurt and Nazism

3 exhibitions from December 2021 to April 2023

Starting in fall, the HMF will be showing an unprecedented exhibition project: in three formats, it will be devoted to the topic of "Frankfurt and Nazism". 75 years after the liberation of the city by U.S. troops, National Socialism (NS) and its aftermath are unfortunately highly topical issues, as right-wing extremist attacks, parties and propaganda show. How the city, which before 1933 was considered liberal and democratic and had the highest Jewish population in the Reich, was able to align itself so quickly and radically with the Nazis, and how sluggishly the process of coming to terms with the past was afterwards - these are the guiding questions of the three exhibitions.
