Collection of Municipal History

In contrast to the courtly history of the castle, the bourgeois history of the place was not documented. In 1945 the town archive in Rheinsberg was burnt down. To fill this gap, the museum established a collection of town history in 1993.

Since 2004, the association "Stadtgeschichte Rheinsberg e.V.", co-founded by the museum, has continued this work. Results of local historical research:

  • 2001 Documentation »Forced Labor in Rheinsberg«
  • 2005 Publication »Jews in Rheinsberg«

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.
