With Uwe Timm and Daniel Göske Reading: Rudolf Guckelsberger Opening speech: Joachim E. Schielke
Once famous, now almost forgotten: “Perhaps Carl Schurz was not such a good role model; this committed democrat had something unwieldy about him – too much indignation, obstinacy and civil disobedience characterised his life.” (Uwe Timm)
The memoirs of Carl Schurz can now be read again, with an introductory essay by Uwe Timm and commentary by Daniel Göske.
