Hans Bayer

War correspondent in the Second World War

After 1945, Hans Bayer became publicly known as a literary figure, journalist and celebrated Swabian poet under the name of Thaddäus Troll. He concealed the fact that as a member of the propaganda unit of the Wehrmacht between 1941 and 1945, he had reported from occupied Poland and covered the campaign against the Soviet Union.

The exhibition depictes Hans Bayer's war experiences and provided insight into the reports that he wrote. It also described the establishment, tasks and impact of the propaganda unit. It showed that Hans Bayer not only had room to maneuver during the war, but used it. The exhibition revealed how the writer, who became so successful after 1945 and who never spoke about his time at war, was influenced by his experience as a war reporter.
