„On the track of resistance“ (Dem Widerstand auf der Spur) is a virtual exhibition portraying Nuremberg’s resistance fighters during the Nazi era. On this website, you find information on their activities and lives. Some of them installed an illegal printing press in a Franconian cave, others refused to work for the production of arms, even others organised unionized resistance or engaged in active solidarity with those persecuted by the Nazi system.

You can visit original sites related to these persons on a tour guided by a Google map.


Temporary installation of QR-Codes on the occasion of the „ Stadt(ver)führungen” 2016

On the occasion of the „Stadt(ver)führungen“ in 2015 and 2016, the virtual exhibition got public for the first time via temporary installations of curious expressions together with QR-Codes in public space leading to the portrait of one of six persons. This first test run made us very optimistic: more than 1000 clicks on pages of this website were registered at two weekends only! We are currently in contact with the city of Nuremberg to negotiate a permanent installation. We will also be present an this year’s “Stadt(ver)führungen 2017”, with Marie Haag incuded in the tour. She paid with her life for her resistance against the Nuremberg Laws.
