Congratulations once again Horsens Prison Museum, this time awarded second prize in the competition Historiske Dages Fornyelsespris 2017.
Historiske Dages Fornyelsespris emphasizes and praises new, innovative, surprising and alternative ways to disseminate history and cultural heritage – ways which make them reach a broader audience.
The committee motivates the Prison Museum’s second prize with the following statement:
“The museum relates to a greater perspective, not only including the society, the offender and the sanctions but also the stories behind; for instance, how imprisonment of one parent affects families and children. Five additional sections at the museum’s exhibition, new website content and last, but not least, a Twitter-profile which focuses on the current debate on the rule of law and how we relate to those who have wronged society.”
Congratulations also to the winners Øhavsmuseet Faaborg and Anders Olling and Erik Havsteen landing the third prize. 19 contributions were nominated in total.
