Behind the scenes

As might be expected, the discovery of the mass grave near Wittstock was the starting point of the project. In 2007, our first priority was to excavate and record the feature. The excavation generated a great deal of interest locally and soon attracted the attention of the national and international media. The positive response to our work then led us to consider how to present this extraordinary discovery to the broader public. The concept for the special exhibition developed in parallel with the complex process of post-excavation analysis and research, which took several years to complete.

You can follow our work on this part of the web site. On the german version, there will be regular updates on our progress and new content (including written accounts, videos, podcasts and pictures) will be uploaded several times a month.
