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.

We stand with Israel

Kurt Tucholsky was of Jewish descent. The museum has been working on Jewish topics for over 30 years, has researched and documented the life of Tucholsky's friend Else Weil, who was murdered in Auschwitz, has been working with the Ernst Ludwig Ehrlich Studienwerk for years, initiated the laying of stumbling blocks in Rheinsberg and much more – a clear commitment to the right to exist of Jews and the State of Israel is important to us as part of our own cultural identity.
