"Homeland - Space of Longing and Combat Concept" - lecture by cultural journalist Andreas Pecht as part of the "Dichtung und Wahrheit" (Poetry and Truth) event series at Schloss Bürresheim.

A sense of home is a feeling that varies greatly from person to person and can refer to different concepts of home. Most people associate home primarily with their own familiar (private) living space, in which they know their way around, feel safe and secure, namely family, friends, birthplace, hometown and home region. The national charge of the concept of home is still a relatively recent phenomenon in Germany. It only emerged around the founding of the German Reich in 1870, because before then there was no Germany in the conventional sense. One only has to think of the slogan "Für Kaiser und Reich. Later it became "For Führer and Fatherland. People have always migrated to new homelands. As times change, so does the homeland. Currently, the thesis of the "de-homelanding of the homeland" is circulating, which is repeatedly linked by interested circles with the "immigration of foreigners". In his lecture, the well-known cultural journalist Andreas Pecht will present the central aspects of his topic "Homeland - Space of Longing and Combat Concept", explain them and put them up for discussion.
