Dear friends of the Völklinger Hütte World Cultural Heritage Site,

In recent decades, we have intensified research into forced labour at the Völklingen Ironworks and presented the results to you, dear visitors, in various states. With the large installations by the world artist Christian Boltanski, we are completely redefining the memory of the theme. The place of remembrance for forced labor at the Völklinger Hütte is stirring and moving (public launch: November 1, 2018); this installation literally gets under your skin.

We have prolonged the exhibition "Legende Queen Elizabeth II. Sammlung Luciano Pelizzari" until Easter Monday, 22 April. The exhibition presents photos, paintings, stamps and coins from one of the largest collections of its kind, the Luciano Pelizzari Collection. They show a comprehensive portrait of the monarch and bring 90 years to life in pictures of the Queen.

The "Second Life - 100 Workers" project by Ottmar Hörl  can also be discovered at the World Cultural Heritage Site at the Völklingen Ironworks.

Representing the whole team of the World Cultural Heritage Site Völklinger Hütte, I wish you  a very Happy New Year 2019.
