In commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Romanian writer Mihail Sebastian’s death, the Romanian Cultural Institute from Berlin will hold a lecture at Hessisches Literaturforum, discussing his journal. Sebastian’s journal “Full of fear, but not desperate”, written during the years 1935-1944, became a literary sensation. His confessions in the journal stand as testimony to the fascinating and terrifying life of the Jewish writer who was living in Bucharest during that time.
On June 28th from 3.30 pm onwards visitors can see Alexandru Nanău’s documentary “Toto and his sister”, which will be shown at the Mal Seh’n Kino cinema. The films offer audiences access to the ghettos, prisons and court in Ferentari.
At 8pm on June 28th, the final day, there will be a show “Zic Zac” combining music and dance, based on a true story about life, feelings, relationships and love. This will be shown at the Gallus Theater and will be followed by a reception.
