In fin-de-siècle Munich, all the Bohemians gather at the seances of Albert von Schrenck-Notzing. The young baron tirelessly investigates mysterious phenomena, above all ectoplasms: structures that disappear as soon as they come into contact with light. A substance from beyond the grave, say the apparitionists. Material slivers of the subconscious, says the baron. Quite simply fraud, say the scientists. After the death of his wife Ella, the love of his life, he travels to Haiti and nearly gets lost in the dark corners of world history. In his second novel, The Possibility of a Miracle, film maker and author Jan Schomburg draws partly on real events to tell the tragicomic life story of a constant seeker, Freiherr Albert von Schrenck-Notzing, known as the “ghost baron” in Thomas Mann’s “Magic Mountain”. Reading by: Maria Schrader; Host: Jörg Thadeusz
