Jean Améry, born as Hans Meyer in Vienna in October 1912, was one of the most important European intellectuals of the 1960s and 1970s. A philosopher and author, he dealt vividly with his experience in Nazi Concentration Camps in his collection of essays entitled Beyond Guilt and Atonement, an indispensable work in German literature on the Holocaust. All five essays, including "How much Heimat does one need?",  are still highly relevant today.

The artist K.H. Schmeißer, born in Bad Wurzach in 1957, lives and works in Horb-on-Neckar. His preoccupying - almost exclusive - theme is the human figure. His work is an artistic study of the human form, its existence, its nature, its ambiguity. He paints an honest, unsparing picture of humanity, devoid of pretence or masquerade.

World War I raged for four years, with a fatality rate hitherto unknown. It left in its wake a “lost generation”, traumatized by war experience in the trenches and confronted with suffering, loss and misery in the homeland.
A local section of the exhibition concentrates on the fate of Jewish soldiers from Horb, Rexingen, Mühringen, Nordstetten and Mühlen. Who were these men who went to war for Emperor and country and what happened to them afterwards?
