Mein Opa, sein Widerstand gegen die Nazis und ich

In the organizer's words:

Nora Hespers grows up with this story : Her grandfather, the resistance fighter Theo Hespers, was murdered by the Nazis. Her father told the story again and again.

In 2012, Nora Hespers is suddenly asked about her grandfather again - he even has a Wikipedia entry. She begins to research, reads interrogation files, produces a podcast and writes a book. She delvesdeeper into her own family history and asks: What can we learn from the resistance of that time for today?

The reading is an accompanying event to the exhibition "Kulturretter:innen" and will take place as part of International Museum Day on May 19, 2024. Free admission to the NS-DOK on this day.
