The Strangers

An appeal for more compassion
Based on a fragment of a manuscript rediscovered in 2015, this text depicts the violent revolt of the London citizens in the 16th century against the Hugenot refugees. 400 years aft er its creation, the text is still a plea for a humane society in times of radical change. Th e editor and translator Frank Günther puts the fragment into a modern context and brings this alarm call from times past into the broader, political view of today.
