Night with Kästner

IMG 0103

On Friday about 70 guests of the CDSC experienced an eventful evening with Erich Kästner at Café Phufin in the lake. Christoph Zänglein, the headmaster of our partner school in Singapore, brought the life and work of Kästner closer to the audience.

In the first part of the evening, he portrayed Kästner's criticism of the constricted and encrusted moral concepts through his lyric in a captivating way. The author's career was also linked to his works.

The second part focused on Kästner's political statements and attitudes. Kästner's pacifist attitude was accompanied by a significant amount of civil courage. The warnings against intolerance, racism and nationalism seem frighteningly relevant during this time and are certainly remembered by every visitor. On this successful evening, visitors have certainly rediscovered Erich Kästner again for themselves.
