LBI Book Club: Berlin Alexanderplatz by Alfred Döblin

September 30 , 2:00 pm

Free

The Leo Baeck Institute presents a  discussion of chapters 1-5 of “Berlin Alexanderplatz,” by the Jewish author Bruno Alfred Döblin, featuring Peter Jelavich, a professor of history at the Johns Hopkins University and the author of “Berlin Alexanderplatz: Radio, Film, and the Death of Weimar Culture” (2006). The meandering story of Franz Biberkopf, ex-con, pimp, small-time criminal and ordinary Joe trying to stay on the straight and narrow, the novel captured life in 1920s Berlin like no other document.
