Heinrich Peuckmann: When plays the Harder Tull 

A staged reading 

It is an almost unbelievable story. The great soccer star of the twenties Otto "Tull" Harder (read by Claus Dieter Clausnitzer), goal scorer, captain of the national team, twice German champion with Hamburger SV, joins the SS and becomes an important advertising medium for the Nazis. During the war, he is assigned to the Neuengamme concentration camp as a guard and later rises to the position of camp commander of the Hanover-Ahlem subcamp. In the concentration camp is his teammate Asbjörn Halvorsen (read by Andreas Weißert), who belongs to the Norwegian resistance against the Nazis and whom he does not help.  

In 1953, the two meet again on the occasion of an international soccer match. Halvorsen had survived the ordeal half-starved. A conversation develops that reveals frightening human abysses. And into this conversation, while the international match plays out in front of the two, Peuckmann assembles scenes from the different, completely contrasting lives of the two. It is a story that is as exciting as it is frightening, the story of a brutal aberration and that of a humane, brave stance against inhumanity. 

After the play, the actor and the author will seek a conversation with the audience. 

Participants: Claus Dieter Clausnitzer, Andreas Weißert, Michael Kamp, Harald Schwaiger and Heinrich Peuckmann  
Sound design: Joachim Serges, microstudio Dortmund  
Direction and organization: Harald Schwaiger 

 


 

Heinrich Peuckmann wohnt in Kamen. Er ist der Autor zahlreicher Romane, Erzählungen und Gedichtbände. Bekannt geworden ist seine Reihe von Ruhrgebietsromanen, die vom Ende der Nazizeit bis zur Gegenwart reicht. Seine Krimireihe um den pensionierten Kommissar Bernhard Völkel, die inzwischen auf zehn Bände angewachsen ist, ist so etwas wie Kult geworden. Kinderbücher, Hörspiele, Theaterstücke runden sein umfangreiches Werk ab. Peuckmann ist der Generalsekretär des deutschen PEN und gerade bei der diesjährigen Mitgliederversammlung Ende Oktober mit großer Mehrheit für dieses Amt wiedergewählt worden
