As a location for historical education and political information we offer a variety of events for specific audiences:

  • the Willy Brandt Lecture, a speech by an outstanding international personality on current global issues,
  • the Willy-Brandt-Discussion, a key-note speech and panel discussion with politicians, scholars or journalists on current German issues,
  • events with contemporary witnesses,
  • lectures by scholars and book launches.

Most of our activities are in German. Unfortunately we can not provide any simultaneous translation.
