100 years of radio

Two days before Christmas, "Silent Night, Holy Night" sounds on the radio, intoned by clarinet, harmonium, strings and piano. What is nothing special today was a sensation about 100 years ago: On December 22, 1920, Reichspost employees of the main radio station in Königs Wusterhausen near Berlin played a historic Christmas concert - the first public radio broadcast in Germany.

2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the historic concert. The exhibition illuminates successes, breaks and futures of the world's first electronic mass medium.
