Research for the Exhibition "Legalized Robbery"
Facts & Files conducted research on the German tax authorities and the looting of Jews in Hesse and Berlin during the Nazi Era for an exhibition at the German Historical Museum in Berlin.
The objects, documents and information found became part of the exhibition shown at the German Historical Museum from May 11 till September 11, 2005. Exhibits were loaned by the Fritz Bauer Institute and the Broadcasting Corporation of Hesse.
The travelling exhibition was displayed in Frankfurt am Main, Marburg, Giessen, Darmstadt, Fulda, Kassel, Wetzlar, and Wiesbaden.
The exhibition in Berlin included a special section on local families as the family of Günter, Ursula and Theodor Pacyna, and the auction house Paul Graupe.
