Actors write

In the still young Federal Republic for Ada the dark past is a book from which the Adults have torn out the crucial chapter. In the middle of the economic miracle she searches for the parts that become one identity and comes across a void of silence and forgetting. Ada doesn't want a miracle, she wants a family, she finally wants her father - but then everything comes different.

An event in the series »Actors Write« in cooperation with the Kurt Tucholsky Literature Museum and Knut Elstermann

Moderation: Knut Elstermann

Kurt Tucholsky Literature Museum on


Alfred Wegener Museum

Since 2009 the Alfred Wegener Museum in Zechlinerhütte belongs to our department.
As a child Alfred Wegener (1880-1930) spent his vacations there. He was a "Viking of science" who wanted to discover the secrets of nature with his own observations. He founded the theory of plate tectonics and undertook four trips to the polar region. He died during his great Greenland expedition in 1930.
The museum presents the life of the researcher and raises awareness of questions about climate change.
