UC Berkeley’s students of German once again present a mixture of poetry, skits, and music in their annual cabaret program with texts and songs by Fred Endrikat, Karl Valentin and many others, including, yes, Herder and Fontane. A humorous, poetic, and playful celebration of the German language featuring, among others, a provocative ballad of a terrorist being brought to justice, a poem about a family of sighs, and  Berkeley students’ take on the use of ChatGPT – all of this in under an hour, free, and in German.
