RNZ Forum

Alter Saal
in German

In the RNZ Forum, Dr Klaus Welzel, Editor-in-Chief of the Rhein-Neckar-Zeitung, regularly invites guests to talk and have an open discussion in the Alter Saal of the Theater und Orchester Heidelberg.

They are Germany's best-known research couple: the cultural scientist Aleida Assmann and the Egyptologist Jan Assmann have each had remarkable careers. But together they are particularly strong - and have been married to each other for over 50 years. In a conversation with RNZ editor-in-chief Klaus Welzel, they talk about love (for science), cultural constructions and the question of whether humanity is in a position to learn from its history.
