An Evening with Danish Radio Producer Anna Elisabeth Jessen

Wednesday, October 14, 2015, at 7:00pm

Her newest radio feature, Guten Tag auf Polnisch, aired numerous times in Germany and was selected as one of the German pieces for the International Feature Conference, held in Lublin, Poland in May 2015. The main character, New York native Ann Elizabeth Michel, always thought her family's heritage was German - until she discovers that her background was German-Jewish. The first act takes place on Park Avenue in New York City. The second and third acts take place in Dobrodzien, Poland (the town called "Guttentag" in German Silesia before World War II). Guten Tag auf Polnisch is co-production of Deutschlandradio Kultur, WDR, and Lublin Radio.
Doctor Tramsen's Report, a documentary about a skull exhumed from a mass grave in Katyn forest in Smolensk, Poland in 1940 and later discovered at a forensic institute in Copenhagen.
