“das goethe” is the Goethe-Institut’s cultural magazine. It appears twice a year as an insert in the weekly newspaper “Die Zeit”.


Tell me about Europe

Experiences of war, oppression and flight in Europe: In the project “Tell me about Europe” contemporary witnesses, born before 1945, tell about their lives and – and reflect critically on their history against the background of the European idea.

Jean-Claude Carrière
“For me, Europe isn’t a peaceful and unified place”

France meant something to him during his childhood, but Europe didn’t, recounts French screenwriter Jean-Claude Carrière. In conversation with opera director Jeanne Pansard-Besson he talks about how he regarded his work in Germany shortly after the war and why he still feels ambivalent about European unity to this day.

The project “Tell me about Europe” is based on the “European Archive of Voices” of the group “Arbeit an Europa”. Upon completion, the archive will include a number of interviews with European contemporary witnesses, born before 1945.
