Tom and Ruth are two children born and raised in Düsseldorf. They live with their parents in the Zoo district, go to school here and meet up with friends in the afternoons. Tom is a big Carnival fan. Ruth often takes trips to the woods with her family.
Everything is quite normal – until the Nazis come to power in Germany in 1933. You will learn what changed for Tom and Ruth’s families and how they both managed to survive the years of Nazi rule. You can record your impressions on a remembrance picture and take it home as a souvenir.
The tour offers a first, sensitive approach to the topic of National Socialism. We will talk about family, dreams, exclusion, and escape.
