Notes

Widerstehen is based directly on the life and death of my grandfather’s eldest child, Elisabeth von Thadden, who was executed on 8th September 1944 in Plötzensee prison in Berlin. The text draws on family documents, including Elisabeth’s letters, accounts of her life by her sister, her nephew and her half-sister (my mother) who was also a pupil in Elisabeth’s school, as well as material from the Museum of the  German Resistance in Berlin, other archives and books on her life.

Written for ensemble recherche, with financial support from the DAAD Künstlerprogramm Berlin, and premiered by ensemble recherche, Freiburg, 28 November 2012
