Ewald Frie präsentiert „Ein Hof und elf Geschwister. Der stille Abschied vom bäuerlichen Leben in Deutschland“

In the organizer's words:

Rural life around 1960 seems closer to the Middle Ages than to our time. But then everything changed. By the 1970s, the world in the countryside was a completely different place. Proud farming with cattle markets and hard backbreaking work has disappeared. Using his own family as an example, Ewald Frie tells the story of how his parents' world came to an end, how his siblings followed other life plans and how social change also affected the countryside.

Ewald Frie, born in Münsterland in 1962, is Professor of Modern History at the University of Tübingen. His book "Ein Hof und elf Geschwister" was awarded the German Non-Fiction Prize and has been on the bestseller lists for over a year.
