The Documentation Centre for Displacement, Expulsion, Reconciliation in the heart of Berlin is a unique location for learning and remembrance. The Centre provides information about the causes, dimensions and consequences of displacement, expulsion and forced migration in the past and present: a site for historical education and lively debate in the spirit of reconciliation.
The exhibition deals with the fate of millions of people who were forced to leave their homeland. It is about politically, ethnically and religiously motivated forced migrations, primarily in twentieth-century Europe but also beyond. The displacement and expulsion of Germans during and after the Second World War constitutes a focus, as well as questions of universal significance: Why are people expelled or forced to migrate? What are the paths they have to travel? What does it mean to lose one’s homeland? How can those affected make a new start?
