They will revisit the correspondence between German writer Bettina von Arnim and Polish author Julia Woykowska and discuss the role that the Polish trade union Solidarność played in the peaceful revolution of 1989. Slaska and Krenz also talk about places of remembrance in Berlin, such as the Memorial to Polish Soldiers and German Anti-Fascists and the Cemetery of the March Fallen. With the story of the Prussian Queen Louise and her sister Frederike, they draw connections to sisterhood and women’s power in today’s world.
