“Antigone is a figure who taught me that there is always a moment in the life of every single individual where one has to decide completely on one’s own: this is as far as I’m willing to go, no further, and now I have to say “no”, even if it costs me my life. And with our German history of course that was always a question for me, where did this figure get the inner certainty, how did she know that, where did she get the courage, would I, Ula, have had that same courage too?”
