It was a very dense, intense evening with a highly focussed audience. With over 60 listeners, the exhibition room and the neighbouring library were filled almost to capacity. Dorothee Röhrig began with a personal remark about how much it meant to her from the Dohnanyi family to read her family history in this particular place, in her great-grandparents‘ house. Her daughter’s family and relatives from the extended Bonhoeffer family were also present. Tobias Korenke, great-grandson of the Schleicher family, was in conversation with her. The fact that this family history is both unique and yet also exemplary for this time and the traumas that have continued to affect the generations has left a strong impression on many.
