... through the storms bad weather - 150th anniversary of the DGzRS

20.05.2015 to 01.01.2017

On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the German Maritime Rescue Service (DGzRS: Deutsche Gesellschaft zur Rettung Schiffbrüchiger)

In addition to the large objects that were previously on display in the exhibition on sea rescue, we have now added items from our magazine's extensive collection that have never been shown before: As central objects they stand for the history of the sea rescue service. Using individual aspects as examples, the technical developments of aids up to the present are shown and the perception of sea rescue at different times is thematized.

A 44-page brochure has been produced for the newly designed exhibition "Seenotrettung" (Sea Rescue) with selected items from the exhibition, set in a historical context. The limited accompanying booklet with an edition of 500 copies was available for a donation to the DGzRS in the amount of 5.00 Euro, but is currently out of print.
