This year marks the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Ulm on 17 December 1944.

On the third Advent Sunday between 7.23 and 7.50 p.m., a three-waved air strike of British Bombers destroyed most of the historic centre, killing 700 men, women and children.

The exhibition in the event hall foyer on level 1 was curated by the municipal archive (Stadtarchiv) and the Stadthaus. It presents historic photographs to commemorate the destruction of Ulm's historic centre and other, international cities destroyed during World War II.
