Next year is the 150th anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi's birthday. Ten years ago, when Gandhi's 140th birthday was celebrated, it was the occasion to launch the Frankfurt Gandhi talks for Deutsch-Indische Zusammenarbeit in cooperation with GandhiServe Foundation. On 12th November we'll be looking back at the events that have taken place every autumn since then.
In addition, we would like to gain insights into the life and work of Mahatma Gandhi with a terrific audiovisual show: Our cooperation partner, the GandhiServe Foundation from Berlin, owns the largest collection of photographs from Mahatma Gandhi's life and has had many of them subsequently colored in the Audiovision Show These are combined into a film and accompanied by explanatory notes. A unique picture and sound document reflects on the period of struggle for Indian independence, but also on the division of the country, we learn about Gandhi's political engagement in South Africa, his contacts with the British occupying power and other states.
The evening is rounded off with Indian snacks and the DIZ and GandhiServe Foundation staff members are ready for talks. We look forward to an exciting evening with you!
