Our cultural tip for November 2021

The play "Fredy" by the ensemble bühnelinks is reminiscent of the jewish Scout functionary Fredy Hirsch.

Trapped in a shed of the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp, a small group of prisoners is preparing for a desperate rebellion. One of them is Fredy Hirsch.

In "Fredy" the ensemble bühnenlinks remembers the jewish Scout funktionary, who has been deported to Theresienstadt in 1941, and died in Auschwitz in 1944. Fredy Hirsch's story is a story of courage and humanity, for he successfully safed the lives of many children and young people on his way. The play, in which four actors trace the life of this special person and thus save him from being forgotten, is our cultural tip for November 2021.
