"Irene Langemann: Das Gedächtnis der Töchter"

Book presentation and panel discussion

Following six women’s stories across two centuries, Irene Langemann portrays the moving collective fate of Russian-German Mennonites in Tsarist Russia and the Soviet Union. The result is a breathtaking historical panorama of the 19th and 20th centuries portraying the ambiguities of cultural identity in different political regimes.

“Das Gedächtnis der Töchter” is the first novel of the award-winning film and television director and author.
