The vaccination ampoule stands for the “light at the end of the tunnel, for medical progress,” said the President of the House of History Foundation, Hütter, of the “Rheinische Post”. In total, the museum has already collected more than 400 objects on the pandemic. In terms of medical history, the pandemic is an epoch-making event, emphasized Hütter.
The House of History Foundation includes four museums in three cities – the House of History in Bonn, the Forum of Contemporary History in Leipzig and the Tränenpalast and the museum in the Kulturbrauerei in Berlin.
The foundation conveys contemporary German history after 1945 in permanent and temporary exhibitions at all locations.
