The annexed Alsace-Moselle, between 1870 and 1918 and then 1940 and 1945, was the most western part of the former german empire, inspiring Henrike Naumann for her exhibition title: “Westalgie”. Why such a word and what links could be made between the former 1990’s GDR background and that of the Delme territory?
The Head of visitors service will guide a tour on how Henrike Naumann proposition resonates with the Moselle background, past and present. Then, the historian Jean Ast will go deeper in this historic interpretation, in a conference on Delme and Moselle history, from 1870’s war to the end of World war II. This will give the opportunity to explore daily life aspects of annexion and nazi occupation in relation with the exhibition's theme.
Saturday 24th September 2022, from 3pm to 4.30pm, at the former synagogue and then at the Gue(ho)st House, 33 rue Poincaré 57590 Delme.
