I.G. Farben and the Concentration Camp Buna-Monowitz. Economics and Politics during National Socialism

NS-Documentation Center of the City of Cologne.

The Buna-Monowitz concentration camp was jointly founded in 1942 by the chemical company I.G. Farben and the SS. Thousands of prisoners were killed by inhumane working conditions in the gas chambers in Auschwitz-Birkenau when they were no longer able to work. The exhibition shows the creation, operation and dissolution of the concentration camp. Historical photographs document the view of the company and the SS. Those photographs are contrasted with autobiographical texts.

End of war in Cologne - City and people between March 6 and May 8, 1945

NS-Documentation Center of the City of Cologne.

On the occasion of the 75th return of the end of war, the NS-DOK will break new ground. The vault of the EL-DE building will become a “media box”. Combinations of light and audio installations as well as film and image projections will be shown. This allows for new insights on the Nazi era, war and dealing with the past. In-depth historical content is conveyed by means of media stations. At the same time, the city itself becomes an exhibition area.
