Michel Abdollahi, born in Teheran 1981, was five years old when he moved to Hamburg with his family. He grew up here, studied law and Islamic studies, and began to translate and write – a completely normal life as a completely normal Hamburg citizen. Or so he thought. Then came Sarrazin, followed by Pegida and the AfD – and Abdollahi found out that a lot of Germans suddenly denied him the right to feel like a completely normal citizen.

Norddeutscher Rundfunk

The Rolf-Liebermann-Studio was a Jewish temple until 1938. Destroyed in the Pogrom Night, ownership of the current Rolf-Liebermann-Studio passed over to the city authorities in 1941, and later to the former Northwest German Broadcasting, which arranged its conversion into a large concert hall. With its classical music concerts, readings, matinees and jazz concerts, the studio is one of the first ports of call for the culturally aware today.
