Hildegard Keller's great novel accompanies the main character through her last summer in Ticino, her life and work as well as her century. Along the way you get to know a fascinating new Hannah Arendt. In the summer of 1975, the almost 69-year-old traveled to Ticino to write her last book and to relax in the idyll of Tegna. The great journey of her life led from Königsberg via Berlin, Paris to New York and also to Jerusalem, to the trial of Adolf Eichmann. Her book about it sparked a controversy that drew Hannah Arendt into the glare of publicity. Hildegard Keller also talks about this, reads from her novel, accompanied by music and pictures.
