A Reading: The 30 Years War
Time & Location
About The Event
On Sunday, the 21st of October, a Popnami! art salon will take place again! This time Christian Pantle honors us. He is editor-in-chief of the monthly magazine G/Geschichte and author of the bestseller of 2018 "Der Dreißigjährige Krieg. When Germany was on fire".
In the new book, Pantle opens the view of the war from below: It tells of the bloody lives of soldiers on the battlefield and of civilians in devastated villages and towns. He lets the mercenary Peter Hagendorf have his say, who marches 23 years of war from one battlefield to the next. And he describes the despair of the monk Maurus Friesenegger about the destruction around the monastery of Andechs. As if through a window of time, we see a world torn apart by power struggles and religious wars and learn to understand the people 400 years ago.
