Documentary screening with live music and conversation with a Holocaust survivor

As a memorial against forgetting, Alain Resnais created the first and most vivid documentary about what took place in the concentration camps with Night and Fog in 1955-56: Enduring images are combined with music by Jewish composer Hanns Eisler and texts, much more than just commentary, penned by two Holocaust survivors: the French originals by Jean Cayrol, the German adaptations by Paul Celan.

At the beginning of the programme, conductor Daniel Grossmann interviews Dr. Eva Umlauf, who survived Auschwitz as a two-year-old. As a therapist she's devoted her life to the burden carried by those born after, the traumata passed from generation to generation.

The conversation is followed by a screening of the 30-minute documentary Nacht und Nebel (the German-language version), accompanied by live music from the JEWISH CHAMBER ORCHESTRA MUNICH and the original text read live by Theo Trebs.
