This project is a work package within the Haus der Geschichte Niederösterreichs (museum of the history of Lower Austria). It includes both research and preparation for presentations in the museum. The content-related foundation of the project is a study on the development of the rural area since ca. 1850, which is supplemented by biographies. Both the biographies and a selection of ca. 100 objects (models, photographs, documents, etc.) serve as the basis for the further mediation of the topic in the museum.
