"The Investigation" by Peter Weiss Performance as a scenic 24-hour reading in six rounds with the Stadtensemble Münster
08.05.2022), ca.00:00 24.06.2022, ca.00:00
Villa ten Hompel, Münster
Stage
Reading

How could the unbelievable, the systematic murders by National Socialism, happen? We want to understand the connections and for that we have to look into the abyss. The playwright Peter Weiss combines the form of the documentary play with the form of the oratorio. Peter Weiss used the transcripts of the first Frankfurt Auschwitz trial, in which he himself took part from 1963-1965, for the conception.

First performed in 1965, the play leaves a lot of room for both the venue and the interpretation. Thus, the play will be performed in Münster at a special location: in the hall of Münster's district court - and for 24 hours in continuous loop!

Sponsored by the Ministry of Culture and Science of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia in cooperation with the NRW Cultural Secretariat Wuppertal, Provinzial Versicherungen, the Peace Office of the City of Münster and the Society of Friends of Music and Theatre of Münster and the Münsterland.

Together with the Münster Theatre and the Cultural Office of the City of Münster

In cooperation with the Münster District Court

Public guided tour through the permanent exhibition History - Violence - Conscience
29.05.2022, 15:00 29.05.2022, 16:00
Villa ten Hompel, Münster
guided tour

Staff members regularly guide visitors through the permanent exhibition "History - Violence - Conscience".
Based on the history of the building, the exhibition tells of the crimes committed by the police during the Second World War and attempts to come to terms with them in the post-war period: the exhibition focuses on the enormous dimension of the uniformed police's involvement in the Second World War and in the genocides against Jews and Sinti and Roma, public and personal denazification and continuities after 1945, the legal process of coming to terms with Nazi injustice and the Federal Republic's bureaucratic attempt to "make amends" to those formerly persecuted.

The prerequisite for participation is the wearing of a medical mask as well as a proven negative rapid test or proof of a Corona vaccination or recovery.

Soldiers in Resistance - The Punitive Division 999 (1942 to 1945) Forum on Thursday with Joachim Käppner
09.06.2022, 19:00 09.06.2022, 21:00
Villa ten Hompel, Münster
Lecture

In National Socialism, "unworthy of military service" was the term used for people who were to be excluded from service in the Wehrmacht as criminals or because of their political resistance. In autumn 1942, however, the High Command of the Wehrmacht arranged for the formation of the 999 punitive division from men originally classified as unfit for military service. Thus, many opponents of the regime and resistance fighters were also forced into military service - but they often continued their political struggle here.

In his lecture, Joachim Käppner tells the often little considered stories of such "soldiers in resistance".

Joachim Käppner is an editor and author at the Süddeutsche Zeitung. The historian, who holds a doctorate, researches, among other things, military topics and will present his latest publication, "Soldaten im Widerstand" ("Soldiers in Resistance"). His publication on Berthold Beitz as an influential industrialist in the coal and steel industry was awarded a prize.

In cooperation with the Evangelical Forum Münster e. V., Gegen Vergessen - Für Demokratie Regionalgruppe Münsterland e. V. and the Society for Christian-Jewish Cooperation Münster e. V.

"So that we can breathe": Migrant voices on racism, racist violence and counter-resistance Wednesday Talk with Kemal Bozay, Orhan Mangitay, Fonda Göçer and Serpil Güner

Lecture

From insults to the use of violence - the range of manifestations of racism and racist violence is broad. Not only the self-disclosure of the NSU ten years ago or the murder of the African-American George Floyd in the USA by two police officers show the continuities of racist ways of thinking and behaviour in Germany and internationally. The latter case in particular triggered widespread protests against racist violence - as well as, first and foremost, attention to the different manifestations of racism and those affected by it.

In "So that we can breathe", migrants now have their say: Kemal Bozay, Orhan Mangitay, Fonda Göçer and Serpil Güner point out forms and causes of racism and talk about necessary consequences as well as strategies for counteracting it. Together with others, they have published the anthology from which excerpts will be read.

The venue is the hall of Villa ten Hompel. Registration is not necessary at this time. Please note the requirement to wear a medical mask and provide proof of 2G+.

Interested parties can also participate online via Zoom. The access link will be published on this page in due time.

Kemal Bozay is Professor of Social Sciences and Social Work at the International University of Applied Sciences in Cologne. Orhan Mangitay is a doctoral student and Serpil Güner a Master's student at the University of Cologne. Fonda Göçer is a teacher of history and practical philosophy in Cologne. Both are continuously working on the topics of education, racism and migration. In addition to them, Esther Bejarano and Kutlu Yurtseven, Eko Fresh, Fatih Çevikkollu, Karima Benbrahim, Reyhan Şahin, Marvin Oppong, Ismail Küpeli and Mehmet Daimagüler, among others, wrote contributions to the anthology.

In cooperation with Evangelisches Forum Münster e. V., Gegen Vergessen - Für Demokratie Regionalgruppe Münsterland e. V., Gesellschaft für Christlich-Jüdische Zusammenarbeit Münster e. V. and LWL-Institut für westfälische Regionalgeschichte.

Promenade Münster, Münster
Market

The unique atmosphere and the beautiful surroundings along the promenade with a view of the castle all the way to the Aasee make the visit something special. This applies to both sellers and visitors. They will find everything that bargain hunters want and collectors' hearts desire: from toys and household goods to clothes, books and records. This weekend, around 35,000 visitors can look forward to a very special highlight: the summer night flea market with moonlight! It starts at dusk on Friday at 8 pm. Then flea market fans can rummage for very special treasures all night long. Professional stalls line up in front of the illuminated castle, while the private part runs along the promenade. And when the sun wakes up, the summer night flea market ends with a coffee in the early morning.
