The Kurt Tucholsky Literature Museum has been entered in the German federal government’s blue book as a “site of cultural memory” with national significance. The blue book comprises twenty institutions in the new federal states of the former East Germany. More information and a downloadable PDF version of the blue book can be found on the federal government’s blue book web page.
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.
