"Homo homini lupus, or Man to Man Wolf"
This exhibition can be described by all rights as one of the most significant, as it shows the reality and rawness of human nature, as long as there are no social rules, it is possible to do violence on another person and it touches the very essence of human being and existence.
This is a unique and one-of-a-kind exhibition of historical torture instruments of torture law and witchcraft. The exhibition shows torture law and includes exhibits from 500 B.C. until the 20th century. It is the most extensive exhibition of its kind in the world, containing over 200 exhibits and instruments that cause physical pain and suffering. Tools for pulling, tearing, cutting, burning and stabbing. Everything what can cause pain and what the executor is able to do and perform on a person.
These exhibits are mostly originals, which were actually used at torture and are accompanied by period pictures and explanatory texts. The collection includes exhibits from all over Europe and shows the gradual development, ingenuity and horrors of torture.
"The exhibition of torture shows the darkest side of human history, however it is part of our history and it can’t be unseen and we can’t pretend it did not exist........"
