On Tuesday 17th September  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.

For the next event, we are extremely pleased to once more welcome Mr Klaus Schwerk who will be coming to Fabisch for the third time. On previous occasions Mr Schwerk spoke to us about his German childhood, from 1929 until the end of the Second World War. This time he is coming to speak about his experiences as a student in the aftermath of the War and then, later when he returned to Berlin, the student protests of 1968 and the dramatic effect they had on German society.

The talk will be in English, is open to all, and is free… although we will be collecting contributions towards our own donation to the ZZB to help them continue in their important work.

Where: Fabisch at The Circus Hotel, Rosenthaler Straße 1 (U8: Rosenthaler Platz)
When: Tue 17th September at 6.45pm
