Word and music on exile and asylum

Lest we forget: 80 years after the night of terror in 1938, flight, expulsion and the search for asylum are more relevant than ever. On 9 November, the anniversary of the “Reichskristallnacht”, the Berlin Piano Trio and the actors Therese Affolter and Gerd Wameling remember this and other events. They read texts and poems by Berthold Brecht and Mascha Kaléko, among others. The spoken word is intensified by works by Bohuslav Martinů, Dmitri Shostakotv, Antonín Dvořák, Ewa Fabiańska-Jelińska and Johann Sebastian Bach.
