Local history museum [Heimat.Museum: Röhrnbach.Kaltenbach]

Description

[Heimat:Verbindet:Röhrnbach und Kaltenbach]
Homeland.

That can also be two places. And two feelings:

Mourning [for the abandoned homeland] and hope [for a new homeland] transport the visitor of the newly designed museum to the time before and after the expulsion from the Bohemian Forest.
However, the exhibition also shows the history of Röhrnbach and impressively demonstrates how Röhrnbach became a new home for many expellees.

Original preserved objects and vividly told story(s) remind of the injustice of the expulsion and convey first-hand rapprochement and reconciliation.

[What is Homeland]

Homeland.
For each person it means something different:
A feeling, a place, perhaps a memory.
