Brecht’s Pupil – A Whole Life Long
Throughout her lifetime Käthe Reichel saw herself as a pupil of Bertolt Brecht, whom she met for the first time in 1950. “Saint Joan of the Stockyards” was her life role and Brecht’s message about the changeability of the world was her vision, which she unwaveringly followed. The great actress and political activist is remembered in film clips and a tribute by Klaus Völker. Petra Kelling and Christian Grashof read from her previously unpublished correspondence with Brecht. Esther Slevogt leads a discussion with Kurt Groenewold and the participants.
