The Salmen Talk will take place again this year - on September 12, the day of the proclamation of the 13 demands of the people on September 12, 1847 in the Salmen.

This time, we will be welcoming journalist and author Lena Gorelik to the podium. In her texts, she addresses current social issues, in particular life as a migrant in Germany. She draws on her own life story: Lena Gorelik arrived in Germany in 1992 with her Russian-Jewish family as a
family to Germany as a "contingent refugee", where she initially lived in refugee accommodation. She attended school in Baden-Württemberg and, after graduating from high school, trained at the German School of Journalism and studied Eastern European Studies at the University of Munich. In her latest novel "Wer wir sind" (Who we are), she writes autobiographically about identity, uprooting and social decline.

Christian Streich, coach of SC Freiburg and also known for his clear political statements in public, has been invited as a discussion partner.
The evening will be moderated by literary critic and presenter Miryam Schellbach. More detailed information about the event is expected to be available on our website from June 2024.
