From the past for the future
War and peace, destruction and reconstruction, end and new beginning: there is a place that speaks of all this. Its moving and multifaceted past is both an admonishing memorial and beacon of hope. It is a place full of stories of people, who went through the worst, did not lose their faith nor courage but did everything to build a new world for their children. Their stories are a source of inspiration to encourage us for our day and age. This is a place where you can meet witnesses to those times, whether they are forced laborers from the Ukraine, Jewish Displaced Persons or Catholic refugees from the East. The BADEHAUS is a place of memories that brings to life our most recent history through multi-media exhibitions and original artefacts from the era.
Every personal experience, every individual story, every object from the past and every helping hand is a building block that keeps the BADEHAUS standing and intact as a place of memories. Were you expelled from your homeland and do you have recollections of the time after 1940 when today's Waldram was still called Föhrenwald? Then tell us what you witnessed. If you have found any objects from that time, bring them as exhibits for display in our museum. And if you want to be part in a project with cultural and social significance then come and support us. Help us in communicating and transporting history as an inspiration for the future.
