Where to with History? – Trailer

Can architecture influence the political development of a city? This question is posed by the documentary film “Wohin mit der Geschichte?” (“Where to with History?”) directed by Hans Christian Post. The reconstruction of the historic center of Dresden after the destruction of the Second World War is considered a success story of German reunification – but since 2015, right-wing extremists have been demonstrating in front of the Baroque facades of the city center. A contradiction? Or could the reconstruction of the war-damaged buildings have contributed to an upswing in right-wing extremist movements?
