Love. Faith. Resistance

Unterschrift
Letters from Prison by Harald and Beate Wagner

17 September 2022, 13:00 - 18:00

 

How could individuals stand up to the Stasi? Harald Wagner, professor of sociology and theology in Dresden after the Peaceful Revolution, served time in the Stasi remand prison in Leipzig and in the Brandenburg prison in 1980/81. The political prisoner and family man had the opportunity to exchange weekly letters with his wife Beate. The result is a unique testimony of solidarity and love, of Christian faith and philosophical reflection. Not all of the letters made it through the prison censors. Together with the Wagners, the correspondence will be made accessible with the approach of citizen research and the background of the records will be illuminated.
