The special event…
On April 15, a reading by the author Bernhard Kegel took place right next to the exhibition. This event was part of the Year of the German language and literature in Russia. Mr. Kegel read from his nonfiction “Animals in the City”, a topic that is also displayed in the exhibition. More than 200 guests came to this event, including students of German language and many students. The interest of the guests was very great and the subsequent discussion surprisingly alive.
