Remembering Ernst Toller: Exiles and Refugees between Germany and the US
May 30, 2019 | 1:00 pm - Jun 1, 2019 | 4:30 pm
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. To commemorate these anniversaries, we are organizing this conference on German-speaking exiles in New York and the United States, and their legacy for today’s exiles and refugees.
Open to Everyone
