Literatur LIVE

The beginning of all or nothing - On June 1, 1944, German troops dominate almost all of Europe; three months later the Allies are at the borders of the Reich. The end of the bloodiest war in history seems imminent, but it will take another eight months, during which many more people will die than in the previous five years.


And: When more than 400,000 Hungarian Jews are deported to Auschwitz between May and July, the Holocaust reaches one of its final excesses. In the summer of 1944, the death waltz began to spin at a speed never before thought possible.

The simultaneity of murder and joie de vivre, also in the Reich, grippingly portrayed in Christian Bommarius' great story, still amazes us to this day. An event by Literatur LIVE in cooperation with dtv and the Thalia bookstore.
