The archive of vanished places in Horno documents the history of those 136 places in Lusatia that had to make way for lignite mining in whole or in part. At the centre of the exhibition is a walk-in map showing the entire Lusatian territory. The visitor can digitally navigate to all disappeared places with an interactive information vacuum cleaner. At multimedia stations, films and numerous contemporary witnesses tell the story of lignite open-cast mining in Lusatia.
