Aufbruch und Reformen (Awakening and reforms)

Pioneers of Modern Social Work in Prenzlauer Berg during the Weimar Republic

Since the number of visitors is limited due to corona, it is necessary that you book a time slot for your visit.

Special exhibition from 20.03. to 24.10.2021

The social hardship of large parts of the population due to the consequences of the First World War and inflation hit especially children and young people. Many remain without education and employment. 100 years ago, on April 13, 1921, the city district assembly of Prenzlauer Berg elects the lawyer Walter Friedländer as city councilor and head of the Youth and Welfare Office. With Walter Friedländer's election, the Prenzlauer Berg Youth and Welfare Office became a place of committed men and women who understood the fall of the monarchy as a new beginning.

The exhibition sheds light on the fields of work of youth care and youth welfare, introduces central actors and employees, and draws case studies of young welfare offenders, thus pointing to the social context in which the work takes place.
