Sheikh Ibrahim, known unknown - A Basel sheikh in the Orient

Wednesday matinee
HMB
Johann Ludwig Burckhardt (1784-1817) traveled the Orient for years under the alias Sheikh Ibrahim. He masterfully managed the balancing act between different cultures by creating a sense of security through general uncertainty about his status. Despite intensive research, the man with two faces remains a mystery.
