Commemorating the November pogroms of 1938 worldwide, the United Nations and the Museum Center for Persecuted Arts are launching the multilingual online exhibition "Seven Places in Germany" - www.7Places.org in this 75th anniversary of the end of the Holocaust and the Second World War, and the founding of the United Nations on 24 October 2020.
Responsible for the exhibition is the Museum Center for Persecuted Arts with the assistance of the Holocaust and the United Nations Outreach Programme as a multimedia educational resource source in remembrance of, and to educate about, the 1938 November Pogrom. The Holocaust and the United Nations Outreach Programme was established by the United Nations pursuant to UN General Assembly resolution 60/7 of 1 November 2005, which urged the UN Member States to develop educational programs with lessons about the Holocaust and requested the UN Secretary-General to establish a Holocaust outreach porgramme and measures to mobilize civil society for Holocaust remembrance and education so as to help prevent future acts of genocide.

The exhibition would not be possible without the unparalleled and tireless work of our colleagues: Marielena Bounaiuto, Claudia Friedrich, Catharina Nielsen, Hanna Sauer and Susanne Vieten.
The opening film and technical support of the press conference and further streaming were realized in an exemplary manner by the company SIEGERSBUSCH FILM, Jeuckens/Windus GbR, Wuppertal.
Without their technical support, the friendly cooperation and creative suggestions from Jansen & Jansen's employees, this exhibition would not exist in this form. They deserve our deepest thanks.
Prof. Dr. phil. Andreas Brenne, University of Osnabrück the Department, Art and Didactics/Art Education, with the interdisciplinary research project "Conflict Landscapes" we thank for the development of didactic projects and learning material.
We thank our media partner, the Solinger Tageblatt, for accompanying the launch of the exhibition 7Places.
We would like to thank the seven places, the association 321-2021: 1700 Years Jewish Life in Germany e.V., Sylvia Löhrmann, MdB Jürgen Hardt and all other partners of the project for their untiring commitment and dedication with which they all keep the culture of remembrance alive in so many different ways.
