by Raymond Federmann
with Martin Engler
Raymond Federman is one of the most influential representatives of the literary avant-garde internationally. The French-American writer and literary scholar of Jewish descent was born in Paris in 1928. He dates his “real” birth however to July 16, 1942, the day on which more than 13,000 people were arrested in Paris and deported to death camps by the Nazis. Raymond’s parents and both sisters were killed in Auschwitz. He himself survived because his mother hid him in a closet.
Martin Engler met Raymond Federman in 2008 in a radio studio. They have been friends since then. Raymond died just before the premiere of THE VOICE IN THE CABINET. It was the first piece by a Jewish author performed in the United Arab Emirates – at the Fujairah Monodrama Festival in 2010. Emma Lily Karier shares her passion for jazz and saxophone with Raymond, whom we warmly greet: Shine on you crazy Raymond!
