Piccolo Theater Jugendklub, Cottbus in co-operation with Schaubühne Berlin

Stumbling blocks are embedded in front of many houses in German cities. They refer to countless tragic fates of people deported during the Nazi regime of injustice.

A short-haired young actress with serious facial expressions is surrounded by a group of young actors who illuminate her with LED bulbs.

A group of young people from Berlin and Cottbus is dealing with a present in which right-wing nationalist parties are gaining strength, society seems more fragmented than it has been for a long time, and so-called protest movements are marching through the inner cities chanting ethnic ideas. She asks herself: How to deal with the knowledge of persecution, deportation and murder of various groups that are still marginalized today? How can this knowledge be preserved? What can be done to counter the social shift to the right? And above all: How to stand up resolutely - today and in the future - against racism and discrimination?
