The Dam Busters - Guidebook

Fill 100x100 default

Reprint and overhaul of the guidebook to the museum about the raid on Ederdam.

M. Schmidt from Verein Sperrmauer Museum Edersee e.V.Write a message

We plan to reprint & remake the guide book to the museum.

The book will be sold at the museum for about 12 €.
Why donations to a commercial project?

The museum, a non-profit-association, does not earn a living - at only about 7.000 visitors a year money simply is not enough to start this project!

By selling the reprint ws can print additional books and translate them into english and dutch.

A donation - tax deductible - would be "help to help themselves"!

At the same time this project shall raise awareness for the museum, history and the region.

To be continued in english soon...

Der jetzige Museumsführer von 2001 enthält Fehler, ist dünner, weist nicht so viele Informationen auf und erzählt die Hintergründe und Geschichte(n), nicht so sinnvoll, ausführlich und lebendig wie möglich und sinnvoll wäre.

Bei der "Neuerzählung der Geschichte" wird es keineswegs um Geschichtsverfälschung/ -veränderung gehen, sondern darum, das Geschehene wahrhaft, mit weiterführenden Informationen, dramaturgisch gekonnt darzustellen.

Und: er ist vergriffen.

An dem Projekt werden Oliver Köhler und Michael Schmidt arbeiten. Im Falle eines Erfolges profitiert in erster Linie das Museum, der dahinterstehende gemeinnützige Verein - und die Besucher.

From next year on the museum will be located in a new building near the dam. The new exhibition will feature a 1:1-model of a lancaster, a 88-Flak-cannon, screens in several languages, films, a flight-simulator, documents...

Due to the new location, marketing, the "70-year-anniversary" (sounds kind of odd) and the remake of the movie by Peter Jackson (sooner or later. My guess is announcement in 2013), visitor-numbers will skyrocket.
