Dirk Reuter lectures on two WWI era Germans, exploring their historic genesis and the fictional fantasies that surround them. Dirk Reuter sheds new light on the last days of General Harras (alias Ernst Udet). World War I flying ace and Nazi, Udet was a longtime friend of the playwright Carl Zuckmayer. Their friendship lasted until the playwright’s emigration to the USA. Dirk Reuter’s lecture offers an essayist approach to Udet and Zuckmayer as both typical and atypical German men.
