Join-in action: Harburger citizens write history
“I’m in Harburg because …” – under this motto, citizens can document why they are citizens of Harburg and what led them to this part of the city: Was it the work, the love, as a refugee or the accident of birth? In the museum archive the stories, experiences and migration backgrounds can be documented. Guided tours of the exhibition also provide a vivid and fascinating insight into the prehistory and early history of Northern Germany and show where we come from, how we evolved and what traces the various migration events in Northern Germany left behind.
The action is funded by the federal program “Living Democracy – Active Against Right-Wing Extremism, Violence and Group-Focused Enmity”, the District Office Harburg and the “Local Partnerships Harburg”.
Action: 12.00 to 20.00
Guided tours: 12.00, 14.00, 16.00, 18.00
