The twenty-minute piece "Pogrom Night / Requiem" had its world premiere on November 11th, 2011 at Hamburg's Town Hall. The third "Night of the Youth" offered young people the opportunity to creatively reflect German history and keep alive the memory of the Pogrom Night 1938. "Pogrom Night / Requiem" was created by the dancers of the National Youth Ballet especially for this occasion. The choreography in three parts combines the works of Patrick Eberts, Gabriela Finardi and Yukino Takaura in a total work of art, in which also the choreographers are actively involved as dancers.
