Special exhibition at the Museum Pankow - Heynstraße location

As the former director of the district library and founder of the district chronicle in today's museum rooms at Heynstraße 8, Rudolf Dörrier was closely connected to Pankow's historical work until his death.

Since a debate about his person flared up in the district in 2017, irreconcilable positions have stood and continue to stand in opposition to each other: For some, Rudolf Dörrier was an anti-fascist and rescuer of his Jewish wife and daughter; for others, he was an opportunistic contemporary who remained silent throughout his life about his role as an SS guard in the Sachsenhausen concentration camp.

As a contribution to the debate, the special exhibition not only approaches the contradictory biography of Rudolf Dörrier, but is also an examination of a part of the museum's own history. The numerous sources and testimonies left behind by Dörrier are critically questioned and contextualised with the help of further sources and research findings.

At the same time, this exhibition and planned accompanying events document different positions, memories and opinions of companions, experts and protagonists of the debate.
