Murder and Manslaughter in Luxembourg

Literature and the media frequently confront their audiences with either true or false descriptions of capital offences, bringing to light the limits and taboos of human behaviour. While these stories quench a widespread thirst for sensation, they also inflame a public debate regarding the attitude to adopt towards murderers and the understanding of the motives underlying their actions. An exhibition at the History Museum of the City of Luxembourg is analyzing the phenomenon of violent crime and its historical and current facets and raises a number of uncomfortable questions. Visit it until the end of March 2010.
