Institute for Contemporary History and Urban Presentation (IZS)

Discover history

The Institute for Contemporary History and City Presentation (IZS) is an integral part of Wolfsburg's cultural and educational landscape. Time and again, it convinces with innovative archival programs and concepts that are also popular beyond the region. Creative forms of cultural and historical education are developed and offered without neglecting the core area of archival work. The institute records, secures, indexes, evaluates and assesses archival material.

In addition, mediation, but also research and documentation are further focal points of the work. The holdings of the city archive serve as a multi-layered basis for this. The IZS regularly documents its work at events, in workshops, and also in local history publications such as the "Wolfsburg Saga," in which the city's history is traced and interpreted objectively and in great detail.

The IZS is not only the competence center of the city of Wolfsburg with regard to the research, mediation and presentation of the city's history, but also sees itself as a place of cultural memory.
