BONN, Germany — As Brexit looms, one of Germany’s main history museums is examining Germans’ views of the British, complete with a countdown clock that may be reset if Britain’s departure from the European Union is delayed.
The “Very British: A German Point of View” exhibition at Bonn’s Haus der Geschichte features among other things a dress worn by Queen Elizabeth II during her visit to West Germany in 1965.
Project manager Christian Peters said Friday aspects include “Britain’s relationship with Europe; Germans’ enthusiasm for the royal family; Britons’ relationship with the past; their obsession, one must almost say, regarding World War II; and of course enthusiasm for British pop culture."
