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.

The program GESCHICHTSMASCHINE is funded by the Federal Agency for Civic Education
