Tigerfish and Schangele


Watching the stars from the cellar

"Tigerfish and Schangele" is retelling the story of the Second World War based on the memories of my mother and those of the son of the British Air Marshal Sir Robert HMS Saundby, Adjudant of the so-called "Bomber Harris". The result is a 3-part audio play with music, which makes clear in a very personal way how it could come to the European catastrophe and what it means for children to experience war as everyday life.
