Zeitgeschichte(n) im Comic: „Columbusstraße. Eine Familiengeschichte 1935−1945"

In the organizer's words:
The Haus der Geschichte NRW is continuing its series "Contemporary History(s) in Comics". On June 7, 2024, comic artist and illustrator Tobi Dahmen will present his book "Columbusstraße. A Family History 1935-1945" in Düsseldorf.
About the book:
After the death of his father, Tobi Dahmen discovers a collection of old family letters that take him back to his father's childhood years in the Düsseldorf district of Oberkassel. Using these contemporary testimonies, he reconstructs a chronicle of the German war years in the mirror of his own family history.
Together with historian Christine Gundermann, Chair of Public History at the University of Cologne, Tobi Dahmen talks about remembering in comics and follows the traces of the German past in his family's experiences and memories. This also raises questions about political and personal responsibility.
The reading will take place on Friday, June 7, 2024, 7 p.m. at Christuskirche, Kruppstraße 11, 40227 Düsseldorf.
Admission from 6.15 pm. Admission is free.
