By and with Jan Uplegger, Yumiko Tsubaki and Maria Hinze
How is resistance possible in an all-encompassing dictatorship? A question that is being asked again in many countries today.
In their production, Jan Uplegger (drama), Yumiko Tsubaki (violin) and Maria Hinze (piano) show how, under the rule of the National Socialists, a single man without today's possibilities of digital communication and storage media built up a network covering the whole of Germany, which acted as the basis for the assassination attempt of July 20th.
Wilhelm Leuschner was the heart and brain of the underground social democratic trade union, in conjunction with the military resistance around Stauffenberg, as well as other liberal trade unionists, with whom he planned a unified trade union. In doing so, he also created the basis for today's DGB. Stauffenberg had intended him to be the new Reich Chancellor.
