Synopsis
Eduard Zuckmayer migrated to Turkey in 1936. At that time he was a quite famous pianist, but the Nazis banned him from his profession. Atatürk asked him to establish the education of music teachers and bring Western music culture to the country. Eduard Zuckmayer headed the music department at Gazi University in Ankara for 32 years. The film is searching for the tracks he left in Turkey. We met former students being very proud on their professor und trying to work in his tradition. We look back on a quite unknown part of Turkish-German history and also give insights into today’s Turkey. The elder brother of the famous author Carl Zuckmayer is quite unknown in Germany, but in Turkey he is still famous and highly respected.
It is not long ago, Germans had to refuge and start a new live in foreign countries.
