Penda Diouf - writing about one self and historical events

In this episode Penda Diouf tells us how she manages to write about her own experiences linking them to historical events. 

She is the autor of PISTES, a theater piece about Pendas experiences as a French person of African descent, but also a piece about the genocide the German Government perpetrated in Namibia around the turn of the last century - a genocide which in part paved the way for the extermination of Jews in Hitler Germany. 

You can find the German and French adaptation of the piece into an audio drama here:
