Open Memory Box

Leibniz Centre for Contemporary History Potsdam

The Open Memory Box is a collection of digitized home movies from the former GDR created by the Leibnitz Center for Contemporary History in Potsdam. The films capture special moments such as family celebrations, holidays or marriage and scenes from the everyday life of GDR citizens, but also document the private individuals’ view of public events such as parades and holidays.
