The past creates the future, or at least how we see the past. It is my strong believe that if we can show nuance and humanity in the past, it will influence the attitudes in the present. One of the main mediums to communicate history to the public is the museum. Often it was said that objects tell their own story, but do they? How can one object tell the multiple sides each story has?
