Germany: memories of a nation Until 25 Jan 2015 ★★★★ The Times This exhibition examines elements of German history from the past 600 years in the context of the fall of the Berlin Wall 25 years ago. From the Renaissance to reunification and beyond, the show uses objects to investigate the complexities of addressing a German history which is full of both triumphs and tragedies. Navigate through Germany’s many political changes – from the Holy Roman Empire through unification in the 1870s and the troubled 20th century to today’s economic powerhouse at the centre of Europe. Explore art by Dürer, Holbein and Richter, and marvel at technological achievements through the ages which gave the world Gutenberg’s printing press, Meissen porcelain, the Bauhaus movement and modern design icon the VW Beetle. £10, Members/under 16s free Last chance to see Sponsored by Betsy and Jack Ryan

In this enthralling new book, Neil MacGregor, Director of the British Museum, discusses the complex history, culture and identity of Germany by telling the stories behind 30 key objects. Beginning with the 15th-century invention of the Gutenberg press, the book ventures beyond the usual sticking point of the Second World War to get to the heart of a nation that has given us Luther and Hitler, the Beetle and Brecht. The book accompanies the BBC Radio 4 series and the British Museum exhibition. Available in the Museum shops and online at £25, hardback
