ROLF MAFAEL, GERMAN AMBASSADOR TO KAZAKHSTAN:
- This exhibition recreates the atmosphere in which the Brothers Grimm worked. There are fragments of wallpaper from the writers’ house, drawings and sketches of their younger brother. Valuable exhibits include books, among which you can find the first dictionary of the German language. In addition to writing fairy tales, the Brothers Grimm were engaged in the development of philology, jurisprudence, mythology and historical science. Their contribution to culture is invaluable.
