DEEDS CALENDAR: Nacht in Deutschland. Verfolgung – Zerstörung – Widerstand. Werke aus der Sammlung Gerhard Schneider – Stiftung Schloss Neuhardenberg | until 11.08.2024

Die Stiftung Schloss Neuhardenberg gedenkt des deutschen Widerstands mit selten gezeigten Zeugnissen aus der Zeit des Nationalsozialismus in der The Neuhardenberg Castle Foundation commemorates the German resistance with rarely shown testimonies from the National Socialist era in the special exhibition Night in Germany. Persecution – Destruction – Resistance, which opens on 20 July 2024, as well as various events as part of the exhibition. Over decades, the collector Gerhard Schneider has amassed drawings, paintings and prints from the years 1933 to 1945 that tell of destruction, fear, persecution, but also of resistance. These are works that were created in secret and whose discovery could have meant a death sentence for their creators due to their political explosiveness. Hidden, sometimes buried, the works survived the years of the Nazi regime. Particularly impressive is a previously unpublished collection of drawings by the artist Ernst Kaufmann from the Theresienstadt concentration camp. Alongside many others, Carl-Hans Graf von Hardenberg (1891 – 1958) also played a key role in the resistance campaign against the Nazi dictatorship. Neuhardenberg Castle was the scene of preparations for the attempted coup. Those involved in the resistance met here to plan the reorganisation of the state for the period after the Hitler regime
