Historical Awareness

Regaining historical awareness and knowledge of national and European identity.


"In the majority of discussions about historical awareness, one only hears that the latter contributes to education, but does not discuss how it should be recovered and preserved." According to the intrinsic statement of the founder of the German Coat of Arms Museum e. V. anno 1967 Hans-Dietrich Riemann. "The only means that is occasionally pointed out here is the demand, but only the demand - not the realization - of more history teaching. In this entirely correct way, however, history consciousness will only arise over the course of generations, if at all. We need more Media!!!"

So Riemann searched and found another medi with the help of which it can be possible to convey historical awareness immediately, specifically and to all classes as well as education and age groups of all citizens.

This medium is the municipal coat of arms, familiar to old and young, popular and inviolable historical documents of many centuries of our history.


So the intention in the form of a different face, a more intensive efficiency and a higher value in the form of a museum. The framework program could use the landscape, political, economic, cultural, etc. conditions, such as tours or events.

This page is now intended to provide an insight into the task, objectives and activities of the German Coat of Arms Museum, which Riemann founded in 1967 and whose coat of arms collection has been preserved to this day.


Today it is up to the heirs to continue fulfilling Hans Dietrich-Riemann's legacy and not to lose sight of his continuing idea of ​​a Europaeum.
