This Tuesday we will be once again welcoming a speaker from the ZeitZeugenBörse e.V. (Centre for the Witness to Contemporary History), an organisation that brings together eyewitnesses to different periods and moments of history to share their experiences and memories with people like us.
We are really pleased to welcome Mr Klaus Schwerk to the Circus, who will be talking about his childhood in Germany during the Third Reich and the Second World War. Some of his relatives were deported to the concentration camp in Theresienstadt, whilst Mr Schwerk was in Dresden during the catastrophic bombing raids of February 1945. Following the war, he worked for twenty years at the DED (German Development Service), including 5 years in India and 6 years in Kenya. After his talk, Mr Schwerk will be available to answer questions.
Please remember that the talks are in English, are open to everyone, and that entry is free. Here are the details:
