Over the last couple weeks, the 10th grade and the Abitur students have visited the temporary exhibit: “1917. Revolution. Russia and Europe” in the German History Museum (DHM). Students were led on guided tours through the causes and course of the revolution, as well being provided a glimpse into its impact on Russia and Europe.
The guides challenged the students to consider the discrepancies between the ideals of the revolution and their implementation, as well as its legacy. One of the exhibition pieces that students found most interesting was a modern sculpture featuring Jesus Christ, Mickey Mouse and Vladimir Lenin hand in hand, entitled: “Hero, Leader, God” – in no particular order.
