THE DYING DAYS OF THE THIRD REICH
GERMAN VERSION HERE
Responsible education, not mystification: Führerbunker VR is a historically authentic, interactive documentary for VR and non-VR systems (Windows PC) about the horror of National Socialism and the last days of the Third Reich in the air raid shelters of the Berlin Reich Chancellery, known as the Führerbunker.
SVEN FELIX KELLERHOFF
EXPERT ON THE HISTORY OF NATIONAL SOCIALISM
Lead advisor on ‘Führerbunker VR’ is Sven Felix Kellerhoff, a historian, publicist and chief editor for contemporary and cultural history at WELT (a major German newspaper and news channel). In addition, he writes non-fiction mainly on contemporary German history (including The Führerbunker – Hitler’s last refuge).
He has been dealing with the ‘Führerbunker’ for around 20 years and was the first researcher to evaluate the construction files in the German Federal Archives (Staatsarchiv) and the GDR’s “Stasi protocols” on the 1973 inspection on the remnants of the bunker.
EXPERIENCE HISTORY UP-CLOSE
The project is developed as a virtual museum for all common VR glasses and is intended to help ensure that an important memorial of the absurdity of totalitarian systems with all its historical errors and human catastrophes does not fall into oblivion.
FÜHRERBUNKER VR will be released in Q2/2022, but can already be pre-ordered through the official website at https://TimeAndHistory. Preorders will also get access to the Closed Beta of the project.
WHAT IS A VIRTUAL MUSUEM?
The core idea behind TIME & HISTORY’s “Virtual Museum” is to make interesting, but destroyed or ‘hard-to-get-to’ places accessible to everyone without having to spend a lot of money or the need to travel. A user can simply download Führerbunker VR and experience it with a VR headset in the comfort of his home.
Experience history and current affairs up close: TIME & HISTORY is a new interactive documentary series by NORD XR, in which history and documentaries are conveyed through immersive VR experiences. The VR documentaries FÜHRERBUNKER VR and ARCTIC MELTDOWN kick off the program.
