Haji Jabir – Black Foam

German Book Premiere

Dawit? David? Or perhaps Dawoud? On the run from a dark past, Haji Jabir has his protagonist take on different names, identities, and religious affiliations in his desperate search for a home. His journey takes him from Eritrea via North Africa to Israel – always in the hope of finally arriving. »Heartbreaking (…) Yet Jabir takes pains to humanize rather than idealize« (National Public Radio).

With Haji Jabir

Moderated by N.N.

Read by Barnaby Metschurat.

With the kind support of the International Prize for Arabic Fiction.

The event is held in Arabic with a consecutive translation into German.
