Poster for photo exhibition, Dictatorship and DemocracyRevealing a total of 190 rare photographs, newspaper clippings and political cartoons from different European archives, the exhibition "Dictatorship and Democracy in the Age of Extremes" tells Europe's dramatic story of the 20th century – a past between freedom and tyranny, democracy and dictatorship. Beginning with the outbreak of World War I, the exhibition illustrates the rise of Italian Fascism and Soviet Communism, the world economic crisis and the takeover of the Nazi regime in Germany, leading to the catastrophe of World War II. It continues with the struggle of newly formed democracies after decades of dictatorships, and depicts Europe’s journey from the Cold War to the Peaceful Revolution. In its complexity, the exhibition is a detailed historic localization of Europe as we know it today.

The exhibition was developed by the Institute of Contemporary History in Munich, the Deutschland Radio Kultur and the Federal Foundation for the Reappraisal of the SED Dictatorship. It is presented by the German Consulate in Toronto with the help of the WCGS.

The exhibit is open on the above dates from 8:00 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. daily.
