In the foyer of the Communication and Information Centre (KIZ), you can see the travelling exhibition "Jorge Semprún. A European Life in the 20th Century" organised by the Ettersberg Foundation.

The exhibition was created to mark the 100th anniversary of Jorge Semprún's birth and focuses on his life, which was strongly characterised by the political extremes of the 20th century.

Accompanying programme

As part of the "Education through Democracy" series, Professor Dr Sandra Tänzer from the Department of Social Studies and Science at the University of Erfurt is planning an event to accompany the touring exhibition on Tuesday, 9 April from 4 to 6 pm. It will place Jorge Semprún's life in a European context and, in view of the upcoming elections in Thuringia, focus on the importance of pluralistic coexistence and the dignity of the individual. After a guided tour of the travelling exhibition, curator and museum educator Laura Fiedler from the Ettersberg Foundation will talk to participants about Semprún's life and how it can be communicated.

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 for 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 that it can also invite reflection, further thought and dialogue beyond the workshop."

The exhibition of the Ettersberg Foundation is sponsored by the Sparkassen Kulturstiftung Hessen-Thüringen and the Landeszentrale für politische Bildung and supported by the Spanish Embassy in Germany and the Museu d'Història de Catalunya.
