A political place of exile – then and now: the ‘Thomas Mann House’ in Pacific Palisades

Thomas Mann moved into his new house in Pa- cific Palisades in 1942. It was a refugium for the writer, an exile meeting place and a place of refuge for his grandchild. In March 2018, Frido Mann sets off on the vestiges of his memories, shortly before the house was to be opened as a centre of transatlantic dialogue by the Federal Government. Frido Mann recalls the politi-cal commitment of the man in exile and finds himself confronted with the question what effect open dialogue can still develop today – in Trump’s America. His essay is a radical plea for responsibility and understanding in a time of global crisis.
