Hans-Werner Kroesinger

In this interview with theatre critic Chen Ran, director Hans-Werner Kroesinger describes the starting point of the documentary theatre play "Stolpersteine Staatstheater". Through the real events that unfolded at German theatres he traces the gruesome and dark societal changes in Nazi-Germany, where stage freedom became more and more limited for Jewish actors and heroes willing to step forward for justice were nowhere to be found.
