REMEMBERING ERNST TOLLER (1893-1939): EXILES AND REFUGEES BETWEEN EUROPE AND THE U.S.
THURSDAY, MAY 30 2019 - SATURDAY, JUN 01 2019
The spring of 1919 saw the brutal end of the Bavarian soviet republic that had emerged as part of Germany’s November Revolution. Twenty years later, on May 22, 1939, Ernst Toller, one of the leaders of that revolution and republic, committed suicide at the Mayflower Hotel in New York, where he was living in exile from Nazi Germany. Hunter College commemorates these anniversaries with this conference on German-speaking émigrés in New York and the United States, and their legacy for the exiles and refugees who are arriving in the U.S. and Europe today.
Presenters from Austria include Helga Schreckenberger (University of Vermont), Frank Stern (University of Vienna), Veronika Schuchter as well as Irene Zanol (University of Innsbruck).
