The Shadows of the Unsaid - Nazi Family History

Lecture evening and panel discussion

21 September 2023  |  7 pm

How do people remember Nazi injustice and forced labor? How do children and grandchildren approach their family history, which is interwoven with National Socialism?

Patrick Figaj deals with the experiences of his Polish grandfather, who had to perform forced labor in Germany. In his podcast Tadschu, he encourages people to come to terms with their own family history.
Ute Delimat's mother was deported from Poland as a child for forced labor; she remained in Germany after the war. She was accompanied in her search for traces by filmmaker Sofia Leikam.
Stefan Weger's exhibition Luise. Archaeology of an Injustice, confronts his great-grandmother's involvement in the arrest of a Polish forced laborer, which led to his murder.
