Reading with puppet show • in German • 120 minutes (incl. artists talk)
The Blum family used to travel around the country as a puppet theatre, before the Nazis dragged them to the concentration camp just because they were Sinti. The fate of the murdered sixteen-year-old Willy Blum is linked to that of the world-famous child from Buchenwald, Stefan Jerzy Zweig. The author Annette Leo set out to uncover the story of Willy Blum and his family. Puppeteer Peter Waschinsky will accompany the reading with puppets. Afterwards there will be a conversation with Petra Rosenberg, chair of the regional Association of German Sinti and Roma in Berlin-Brandenburg.
