Eyewitness Talks: Growing Up in Germany 1925-50

circus-talks-buttonOnce again we are really pleased to be welcoming another eyewitness speaker to the Circus, as part of our ongoing series of history talks in cooperation with the ZZB – The Centre for Witness to Contemporary History. The talk is taking place at The Circus Hotel tomorrow evening, and as always it is completely free, takes place in English, and everyone is welcome.

Our speaker this month is Frau Gericke who was born in Potsdam in 1925, and grew up through the Weimar period, the Nazi’s rise to power, and the Second World War. In 1945 her family’s home was confiscated to be used as Winston Churchill’s residence during the Potsdam conflict, and was only returned to the family after the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1990.

Frau Gericke will share her story with us, and will be available afterwards to answer questions. This is not only the first ZZB talk of 2012 but it is also the first anniversary of our cooperation with the ZeitZeugenBörse. We have had a great year of talks in Fabisch, and we are looking forward to many more fascinating evenings sharing the experiences of the eyewitnesses who are kind enough to join us and give us their time.

VENUE: Fabisch @ The Circus Hotel
DATE: Tuesday 10th January
TIME: 6.45pm

And finally…we have a very special ZZB-themed treat coming up in the next couple of days, so keep your eyes peeled both here and on our facebook page.
