Brecht and his family, in exile in Denmark, were often separated from each other for several months. Letters and postcards were their only way of staying in touch. Brecht was an avid writer of letters. In 1938, he sent his son, Stefan, a particularly beautiful postcard with a Chinese illustration. It showed six children rehearsing a theatre scene with puppets. For the Brecht Festival 2022, the Brechtkreis and the Brechtbüro invited schoolchildren from Augsburg to make a creative response to Brecht’s postcard. The Brecht Festival is presenting a selection of the best work.
A project by the Bert Brecht Kreis Augsburg in cooperation with the Brechtbüro.
