With the play "Think! Hannah Arendt", the Parktheater Edelbruch puts the life of the philosopher Hannah Arendt to the test. The philosopher was and is a role model: for thinking against the current, for the commitment against totalitarianism and for the unconditional will for freedom. She was a refugee, at times stateless. She went her way as a divorced woman. She was a person who remained true to her conscience and did not follow any ideology. She opposed populists.
