"Schoog in Dialog" is the name of the series created in 2023, in which Bernadette Schoog will ask prominent guests to talk to her in the Kurhaus four times a year. In each case, an exciting personality will be interviewed by Bernadette Schoog on stage exclusively in front of an audience about their life, visions, ideas, imprints, thoughts etc. An up-close, ninety-minute experience with a prominent person, an empathetic interviewer - and all this in a beautiful ambience.
Joachim Gauck, former Federal President, is a guest of Bernadette Schoog. Joachim Gauck is familiar to many people in different fields: as a contentious pastor in Mecklenburg and co-initiator of the resistance against the SED dictatorship, which resulted in the fall of the Berlin Wall on 09.11.1989. As Federal Commissioner for the Records of the State Security Service of the former GDR - and as President of the Federal Republic of Germany from 2012 to 2017. He is a man who has always felt connected to the people and has a resume that is second to none. Our former Federal President, who was always said to have been a political president, has nine honorary doctorates to his name. "War child, sailor's son, eternal pastor" - this headline probably characterizes him quite well. On "Schoog im Dialog" he talks to Bernadette Schoog about his eventful life as a clergyman, politician, socially committed person and admonisher - and of course also about his books on the situation in Germany. Most recently published: "Shocks - what threatens our democracy from outside and inside."
