Lew Nussimbaum aka Essad Bey aka Kurban Said Wanderer Between Worlds
Born to a Jewish family in Kiev, raised in Baku, and converted to Islam in Berlin, Essad Beys orientalist writings reached a huge audience in the Weimar Republic. Although his novels and essays depicting life in locales such as Azerbaijan and the Caucasus helped shape notions of a mysterious and romantic East in the German public imagination, the Muslim community in Berlin and scholars of the region found his imagination was sometimes stronger than his command of history. His own incredible life may have been the most fantastical story he left us, however. Michael Lahr will give a lecture on Essad Beys life and times, followed by a dramatic reading of selected works (in German) by the actor Gregorij H. von Leitis.
