The opening night will be held on 2 October in the presence of the minister for education, Claude Meisch and Nicols Schmit, the minister for employment and social economy.
On the same day, a play, named after Hessel’s popular essay “Indignez-vous!” (“Time for Outrage!”) will be performed by 16 students from Lycée Aline Mayrisch. The event aims to honour the birth of Hessel, who would have turned 100 this year. It is possible to see the exhibition until 16 November.
Entry for the opening night as well as for the exhibition is free of charge. More information can be found by visiting www.ipw.lu
