Event Details

Introduced by Dr. Lars Hänsel (Director, Konrad Adenauer Foundation) and Bettina Renner (director, Bury My Heart in Dresden)

Germany, 2012, 90 min., Director: Bettina Renner

A Catholic cemetery in Dresden, Germany. In the middle of a meadow, a small grave. And at the foot of the gray and weathered gravestone, waving in the wind, a small American flag. The inscription chiseled into the old stone reveals who was laid to his final rest here in 1914: the Native American Edward Two-Two, a Sioux chief.

How did a Sioux Indian end up in a place like Dresden so long ago? And why was he buried there at his own request, so far from his native lands and contrary to all Indian traditions?
The film tries to find answers by traces the extraordinary life story of the Indian chief Edward Two-Two at Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota.


Followed by a discussion with Dr. Peter Rollberg (Professor of Slavic Languages, Film Studies,
and International Affairs; Director, Graduate Program in European and Eurasian Studies; Director, Institute for European, Russian and Eurasian Studies, George Washington University) and Bettina Renner.
 
In cooperation with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation.
