Karl Hoecker’s Album, dir. Paul Bargetto – a performance by the Trans-Atlantic theatre
Authors of this docu-perfomance were inspired by a photo album of Karl Hoecker, an SS officer, aide to one of the commanders of the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp. Through the use of improvisation and methods of a documentary theatre, the Trans-Atlantic group shows the life at the camp from the point of view of the Nazis.
What mechanisms drive people to become evil? What are the limits of fanaticism? Would it be possible today to repeat the situation from the extermination camps? The performance is accompanied by a workshop for children and youth.
CANCELED due to national mourning day
