Following in his grandfather's tracks, Frido Mann gave lectures in more than a dozen cities in the United States and Canada as a fellow of the German Federal Foreign Office. He addressed the current crises in the American and European democracies and the need for their restoration on the basis of a transatlantic dialogue.

Born in the United States, Frido Mann sensed the democratic creed of his parents and grandparents from childhood on. They had managed to leave Europe for the U.S. just in time before the outbreak of WWII. During his extended lecture tours, Thomas Mann, Frido's grandfather, addressed his American audiences with his speech “The Coming Victory of Democracy,” warning of the dangers of fascism for a liberal democracy: “the social renewal of democracy is the presupposition and the guarantee of its victory.”

Frido Mann will hold his lecture first and then engage in a dialogue with the audience. (Text: Amerikahaus)
