The Woman at His Side





“I highly recommend this performance piece for the purposes of political and historical education and for the engagement with the legacy of National Socialism.”


Dr. Norbert Kampe, Director of the House of the Wannsee Conference




“The subtlety and nuance with which Inga Dietrich, Joanne Gläsel, and Sabine Werner approached this difficult topic was truly impressive. As a TV journalist for the ARD (Panorama and Berlin Metro Studio) I have often dealt with the topic of National Socialism and Neo-Nazism. I find it fascinating to discover this lesser-known side, i.e. the role of the women who stood beside their perpetrator husbands.”


Gesine Enwaldt, TV journalist




“Your choice of the staged reading format and your delivery of the texts themselves showed convincingly that it is possible to make difficult and, given the subject matter, unpleasant autobiographical accounts by these female accomplices, accessible not only to specialists but also above all to an audience that is less familiar with the National Socialist dictatorship, in a convincing and critical way. … The unexpectedly large number of visitors—120 in Osthofen and 220 in Hinzert—shows us that there is significant interest in the topic and in this form of representation.”


Uwe Bader, Director of the Documentation Centre Rheinland-Pfalz, Osthofen Memorial




“For the documentation centre the evening was a great success. Never before have so many visitors thanked me personally—both on the evening itself or by telephone several days later—for the performance.”


Linda Pfnürr, Director of the Documentation Centre Obersalzberg
