A school class in 2433 discovers a time capsule. It contains centuries-old records from young people of the same age who, in 2023, were investigating their own present and recent past. The discoverers explore the stories of a violent past that they know from history books, but which does not appear in their family stories.

How do we interlock collective memory and individual family biographies? Based on a comprehensive series of workshops, this evening of theatre created together with young people questions our culture of remembrance and expands our understanding of history. How does collective memory work when the Nazi past is less and less intertwined with people’s family biographies?
