Readings by Miguel Herz-Kestranek
The famous actor and author Miguel Herz-Kestranek will read from his new book “Die Frau von Pollak, oder wie mein Vater jüdische Witze erzählte” (= The Wife of Pollak, or How my Father told Jewish Jokes).
The mixture of personal family history, contemporary history, forgotten Jewish stories, less common Jewish jokes, parables and anecdotes provides insight into an exterminated culture, lost times and the fact that humor and tragedy often go hand in hand.
