Reading against oblivion. We remember the book burnings 90 years ago
Symbolic image: book fund with rescued books


For the first time - as in many cities - well-known personalities of Magdeburg read against oblivion. Hans-Günther Pölitz, Giselher Quast, Pascal Begrich, Ilka Hein, Lars Johansen as well as authors from the Association of Writers will take part. They will read short texts from the works of persecuted writers and publicists burned by the Nazis in the spring of 1933. Martin Rühmann and Frank Schöpke will provide musical accompaniment to the reading. The Rosa Luxemburg Foundation in cooperation with the Literaturhaus Magdeburg, the Förderverein der Schriftsteller e.V. and Miteinander e. V. invite to the event. The reading is part of the commemorative year Magdeburg 2023.
