The Museum

Literature is on paper; it requires readers that deal with it. The Literature Museum has set itself the goal of making the encounter with literature and its author a real experience. We don’t regard Kurt Tucholsky as a statue on a marble pedestal. We listen to him, let him inspire us, are sometimes astonished at how farseeing he was, and see his limits. The Literature Museum cordially invites visitors to become a “reading tourist”, plunge into Kurt Tucholsky’s world of writing, and approach the author and his time.

Guiding principle of the museum

At the center of our work is collecting, preserving, researching, and presenting materials on the life and work of Kurt Tucholsky.
In accordance with our social task, we work actively with Tucholsky as a model for the spirit of tolerance and understanding.
By focusing on Kurt Tucholsky and the literary publications of the Weimar Republic, we place ourselves in the Enlightenment and democratic tradition that addresses the intellectual standards and everyday problems of modern humanity. The guideline of our activity is always the international ICOM code of ethnics for museums.
