Dr. Kathrin


”The collection of the German Maritime Museum offers me a large number of objects where research into the origins and the different ways of ownership in the course of time is very illuminating. If we look at the objects from all sides - in the literal sense of the word - we can see details that reveal to us the hidden stories behind the objects.“
