  |   Events, News

After a great workshop week in Hamburg, we had the great honour of performing our musical reading “Ich wand’re durch Theresienstadt” on 16 February in the Laeiszhalle Hamburg.
The actor Roman Knižka read from the works and memories of artists, children and young adults who were imprisoned in Terezín, including texts by Terezín survivor Edith Erbrich, who attended the evening in person.
The OPUS 45 wind quintet played accompanying compositions by Pavel Haas, Hans Krása, Viktor Ullmann and Gideon Klein, among others. The concerts also featured contributions by pupils that were created during previous workshops with pupils from the Bergstedt Stadtteilschule, the Juliu-Leber-Schule, the Gymnasium Christaneum, the Ida-Ehre-Schule, the Gymnasium Oberalster, the Irena Sendler Schule, the Stadtteilschule Helmuth Hübener and the Elisabeth-Lange Schule.
After the performance, guests had the opportunity to attend our moderated follow-up discussion with Theresienstadt survivor Edith Erbrich as well as Ninja Stehr from Centropa and the project consortium consisting of Roman Knižka, Opus 45, Jugend- & Kulturprojekt e.V., dramaturge Kathrin Liebhäuser and theatre pedagogue Lisa Hörmann.

Our special thanks go to Edith Erbrich, who touched and deeply moved us with her clear statements, but also to the participating pupils and teachers for their active participation and creative contributions.

We remember for a better future: History must not repeat itself!
