circus-talks-buttonCIRCUS TALKS: MY FATHER’S STORY

Tuesday 6th December 2011 @ 7pm
Fabisch at the Circus Hotel

We are extremely pleased to welcome Frau Margit Siebner to the Circus for the next of our series of eyewitness history talks in association with the ZZB (Centre for Witness to Contemporary History). Frau Siebner was born in 1932, to a father of Jewish descent and an “Aryan” mother. Her father was deported to the concentration camp in Buchenwald, but he was thankfully able to emigrate to Shanghai where he opened a German bookshop. Frau Siebner and her mother remained in Germany where Frau Siebner, classified as “half-Jewish” was discriminated against and forced into hiding.

Frau Siebner will be talking about her father’s story as well as her own, and will be available to answer any questions. We are extremely thankful that she is taking the time to join us, and we expect it to be another truly interesting evening. The talk is in English, free, and open to everyone. We hope you will join us.
