Staged reading "Anne Frank Diary" with Fabienne Elaine Hollwege
On the occasion of the commemoration week for the Holocaust victims of
the Second World War, a staged reading from the "Diary of Anne Frank"
followed by a discussion took place in our library on Friday. The
freelance artist from Luxembourg, Fabienne Elaine Hollwege,
impressively recited relevant passages from the diary and confronted
our students with the worries and hardships of the young girl. How can
you experience puberty and normality when you spend years locked up in
a confined space with other people, how do you deal with the permanent
fear of being discovered and deported?
Afterwards, students had the opportunity to learn about the life of
Anne Frank as well as about the Shoah and the collective guilt of the
European countries of that time. In this lively discussion, we all
became aware of how human rights are suddenly again in the slipstream
due to the Corona pandemic and are again violated by the resulting
turbulence and conspiracy theories.
"Test everything, believe little, think for yourself", with this
inspiring quote by Albrecht Müller we defined the concept of
democracy, analysed the influence of massive propaganda and the
effective political-media manipulation.
We would like to thank the German Embassy in Luxembourg and the ZpB
Luxembourg for making this special meeting with Ms Hollwege possible.
