Stefan Manz, Professor of German and Global History and Head of Languages and Translation Studies at School of Languages and Social Sciences at Aston University in Birmingham, UK visited our Museum this week and spent some time here researching our history collections and interacting with both staff and visitors. Stefan is the curator of the original content for the Behind the Wire Exhibition. He put together education packs for our Education Department, the material aligns with the grade 8 syllabus. The material was used this week with both school groups and educators to mark the opening of the Behind the Wire exhibition. There's always something new to see at the KZN Museum!
