The history of military aviation began shortly after the invention of the first aircraft in the 19th century. Many aviation pioneers hoped that aviation would unite nations and bring peace. But the use of airplanes and airships in military conflicts before the First World War proved otherwise. In just a few decades, man had developed the range and destructive power of these weapon systems to the point where they could destroy entire cities.

In the centre of the exhibition, the Room of Reflection, well-known and unknown contemporary witnesses from the different eras tell of their experiences. They show how lastingly the air war changed our understanding of war. The exhibition also addresses questions about the responsibility of the state and the individual.
