Himmler/Grunberg dialogue a great success

On May 24, 2023, the students of Mandeville Academy organized the Himmler/Grunberg dialogue. Katrin Himmler (grandniece of Heinrich Himmler) talked to Arnon Grunberg (bestselling author and traumatized by his parents’ Auschwitz past). It was a meaningful, emotional evening. The evening was introduced by Hans Pieter Sklapdel (lecturer/moderator Mandeville).
