The history of the "Föhrenwald" settlement near Munich parallels contemporary German history. Built in the 1930s as a forced-labour camp, Föhrenwald became a settlement for so-called "displaced persons" in 1945, which included survivors from the Dachau concentration camp. From 1956 on, it became the new home to families expelled from their native countries. The history of Föhrenwald was the theme of a mobile panorama installation by the kunstraum muenchen which was supplemented by publications and events.
