Museum Hotel Silber

The “Hotel Silber” in Stuttgart
The “Hotel Silber” in Stuttgart was a headquarters of the Secret State Police during the Nazi era. The building was used by the police for more than half a century and was the headquarters of the Gestapo for Württemberg and Hohenzollern. In the former place of Nazi terror, a place of historical-political learning and encounter was created as a citizen participation project. Exhibitions and events deal with perpetrators and their victims, with the police and their role in three political systems.

The permanent exhibition in the place of remembrance

The permanent exhibition of the House of History Baden-Württemberg in the “Hotel Silber” deals with the history of the police in the building. It shows continuities and breaks in their dealings with minorities and in law enforcement, but also the self-image of the police officers in democracy and dictatorship. Why did the transition from the Weimar Republic to Nazi rule work almost smoothly? Who was sent from the “Hotel Silber” to occupied territories during the Second World War and was responsible for mass murders there? Which groups of people remained in the sights of the police after 1945? Original objects as well as documents, images and media convey a differentiated picture of the perpetrators and show the consequences of their actions for the victims.
