In the Swedish part of our website you can also read about exhibitions from The Living History Forum, that are now showing in other museums around Sweden.
In today's society we are all flooded with information, and there are many who want to influence our thoughts and behaviors. Access to information gives great democratic opportunities, but also imposes demands on our ability to think critically.
This exhibition shows how the idea of "the good society" was given prominence in the propaganda of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union in the 1930s and 40s. It is also about the media society, what controls the media flow, and how susceptible we are to influence. By showing how propaganda works, the Living History Forum wants to equip the visitor's critical thinking and provide tools with which to detect manipulative messages. How do you handle the information flow yourself?
Legacy of silence
This exhibition gives the Holocaust a face to the world in the form of personal testimony about the suffering of the Roma during the Second World War. Making their stories visible is also a form of redress. The words of the survivors make the genocide concrete and give it a presence today, more than 75 years later. Our aspirations are that this exhibition will make it easier for people today to take in this brutal aspect of our history and that it may provide an impetus for further reading.
The exhibition is based on the Swedish book Det tysta arvet – romer under Förintelsen (Legacy of Silence – Roma during the Holocaust)
