„Wenn spielt der Harder Tull“: Szenische Lesung im Dortmunder U


"Dangerous Game - Football for Life and Death" is the title of a novel by Kamen author Heinrich Peuckmann. On Friday, November 26, 7:30 p.m., the author will read from it at the cinema in the Dortmunder U. The Dortmund actors Claus Dieter Clausnitzer, Andreas Weißert, Michael Kamp and Harald Schwaiger will participate in the staged reading. Admission is free, the 2G rule applies. 

It's an almost unbelievable story. The great soccer star of the 1920s, goal scorer, captain of the national team, two-time German champion with Hamburger SV, joins the SS and becomes an important advertiser 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, 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 terrifying human abysses. Into this conversation, while the international match is playing in front of the two, Peuckmann assembles scenes from the two different, completely contradictory lives. It is a story of a brutal aberration - and of a humane, brave stance against inhumanity - that is as exciting as it is frightening. 

After the play, the actors and the author will seek a conversation with the audience. Heinrich Peuckmann is the author of numerous novels, short stories and volumes of poetry, children's books, radio plays and plays. He is best known for his series of Ruhr novels, which span from the end of the Nazi era to the present. His cult crime series about retired inspector Bernhard Völkel has now grown to ten volumes. Peuckmann is the secretary general of German PEN and has just been re-elected to the post by a large majority.
