Museum Berlin-Karlshorst is located at an historic site. It is a byword for the end of the second world war in 1945 and the post-war period in Europe. Today, the museum presents various points of view on German-Soviet history in the 20th century. It is unique in Germany for having a multinational board of trustees. The museum facilitates encounters and an interchange of thoughts about history and its past and present commemoration.
Four nations are involved in the work of the museum: the Federal Republic of Germany, the Russian Federation, the Ukraine and the Republic of Belarus.
The Museum Berlin-Karlshorst is 100% financed by the Federal Commissioner for Culture and the Media of Germany.
