Concert and reading from the book "Die Freiheit kam im Mai" [Freedom came in May] incl. performance of "Mauthausen Cantata" and Greek resistance songs. Reading: Elena STRUBAKIS and Franz Richard REITER; Vocals: Olga KESSARIS, accompanied by her ensemble (piano and bouzouki)

Iakovos Kambanellis was a prisoner in CC Mauthausen. He describes the time of captivity, the day of liberation on May 5, 1945, life in the camp in the following months, contacts with the population in the nearby villages and farms, life upon departure to freedom, the first steps into a new epoch. Elena STRUBAKIS, the translator, and Franz Richard REITEr read from the book. In between, the songs of the "Mauthausen Cantata" and Greek resistance songs are performed at appropriate places.

Iakovos Kambanellis is one of the most famous stage and film authors in Greece. His popularity is also based on the often performed and sung settings of his poems, especially the world-famous "Mauthausen Cantata", which was set to music by Mikis Theodorakis. Concerning this first German translation of the work, which has been published more than 30 times in Greece, Theodorakis says: "In his book, the poet proves that he is stronger than his jailers, because he convincingly shows us that even in hell, love ultimately proves to be the stronger thing".
