Großes Haus

Paris, 1935: a pulsating metropolis at the centre of Europe. The city has become a place of exile for thousands who had to leave Germany after the National Socialists seized power in 1933. As early as the 1920s, Lion Feuchtwanger was one of the first who recognised how dangerous Hitler and his party were going to be. In his novel Exil, completed in 1939, he managed to bring the time before the outbreak of the Second World War to life – for the coming generations who would not be able to comprehend how most people did nothing although the brute force of the National Socialist rulers became more and more apparent. Feuchtwanger’ characters struggle with the question of what it means to do "the right thing" in this situation and tell stories of careerism, opportunism, oppression, moral courage, love and betrayal.
