Placed out of others, recruited, incapacitated, cared for in institutions, forcibly or sterilised: until the 1970s, tens of thousands of children, young people and adults in Switzerland were affected by coercive welfare measures. In Graubünden there were several thousand. Many came from difficult social and economic circumstances. Their way of life, which deviated from bourgeois norms, was the reason for massive interventions and repressive measures. For several years now, those affected have been increasingly raising their voices. They report on what they have suffered and demand that they come to terms with the situation. The fact that they were wronged is now officially acknowledged. In 2017, the Grisons government issued an apology. The exhibition focuses on five of those affected, born between 1881 and 1957. In walk-in rooms made of cardboard, you as a visitor are invited to immerse yourself in their world. Radio plays and archive documents tell the story. And the question is: How does what happened affect us today? Due to the exceptional situation, the number of participants at all events is limited.
