£5 in advance/£8 at the door
Director Eberhard Bussem’s documentary is dedicated to four Viennese-born scientists, Alfred Bader, Carl Djerassi, Walter Kohn and Peter Pulzer, who had to leave Vienna after Austria’s “Anschluss” to Nazi Germany simply for their Jewish origins.
In this documentary they discuss their traumatic experiences, their lives as emigrants and their outstanding success as scientists.
Sir Erich Reich in conversation with Eberhard Bussem and Professor Peter Pulzer will follow the documentary.
