Accompanying event to the travelling exhibition of the same name. The event with curator and museum educator Laura Fiedler from the Ettersberg Foundation is part of the "Bildung durch Demokratie" series.

Jorge Semprún (1923-2011) was a Spanish writer and concentration camp survivor. His life was strongly characterised by the political extremes of the 20th century. Semprún was aware of his responsibility as a survivor of the Buchenwald concentration camp. He wrote about his experiences in the camp in order to keep the memory of the National Socialist crimes alive. From this, he derived his vision of a democratic and united Europe for the future, which he campaigned for. After a guided tour of the travelling exhibition, curator Laura Fiedler will talk to participants about Semprún's life and how he communicated it.

About the series

The "Education through Democracy" series has established itself at the University of Erfurt in recent semesters.

"In the coming semester and with a view to the election, it is particularly important to us to discuss the value of democracy and democratic values with students and interested parties through different approaches and events," explains Professor Sandra Tänzer. "We haven't had an exhibition on this yet. I hope it can also invite reflection, further thought and dialogue beyond the workshop."
