Adolf Hitler knew nothing about Anne Frank, but she knew a lot about him.
It is Hitler's "Kampf" that witnesses and ends the story of Anne Frank. She dies in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp at the end of February, beginning of March 1945. What remains is her diary.
On this evening you will experience how the two texts collide in a sharply edited reading. Horror and hope, beast and young girl. History that creates history with derisive laughter.
 
At a time when the right is gaining strength again, it is important to show the struggle of the little diary against the great dictator, in order to once again develop a sense and ear for the subtleties of history.
Because history always consists of stories.
And stories are made up of destinies.
 
Cabaret artist and singer MARIANNE BLUM and actor Thomas Linke guarantee an evening that is not only educational but also entertaining, despite the seriousness of the subject, just as Anne Frank's text is not only sad but also passionate and humorous, and Hitler's machinations not only frightening but also downright unintentionally funny in places. The two artists approach the books with respect and sensitivity and present them so skilfully and grippingly that the historical reality becomes vivid for the audience and at the same time the connection to the present becomes frighteningly obvious.
 
The reading is musically complemented by authentic Yiddish songs (some of which were written in the ghetto or in the labour camp), German Schlager, Gassenhauer and Durchhaltelieder from the time, sung live by MARIANNE BLUM. They not only add the authentic sound of the time to the play, they also bring the totality of the persecuted onto the stage in an impressive way, of which Anne Frank is a prominent example.
 
This is a lively history lesson and powerful literatainment!
