Human Rights Program, Hannah Arendt Center, German Studies Program, Center for Civic Engagement, Bard Theater and Performance Program, and Anthropology Program Present
7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Written and performed as documentary theater, The NSU Monologues features the words of three relatives of the NSU’s victims: Elif Kubaşık, Adile Şimşek, and İsmail Yozgat. The stories of Elif, Adile, and İsmail testify to the survivors’ courage and determination. Whether they marched at the head of a funeral procession, organized demonstrations, or demanded that a street be renamed in the victims’ memory, their small acts defied the narrow “official” accounts of German authorities. With their testimonies, they reclaim a space for a historically accountable and antiracist mode of remembrance.
This performance will feature the work of Bard German Studies students, who have translated the original German-language script into English.
