The exhibition “The Story of One Bedroom” tells the story of a bedroom from the 1930s and the families who owned it – a German family and a Czech family. The exhibition is a collaboration between the Museum Library, the Regional Museum and Gallery in Most, and the furniture curator of the Regional Museum and Gallery in Most. The exhibition is conceived as the story of a bedroom that tells the difficult times of its owners – the family of the German businessman Karel Kraus, who became famous as a manufacturer of children’s sponge cakes and in 1945 committed suicide with his whole family and subsequently the couple Laviček, who returned from a concentration camp and bought this bedroom for their new home. The exhibition takes place from 2 June to 25 October 2020.
