Halfway through 2010 we were forced to look for another venue. The Polak Room could seat only 200 and we were having to turn people away.
Luckily we found a receptive partner in the Goethe Institute, with a venue that seats 300.
All our events at the Goethe Institute from “Sergio” to “Sins of my Father” have been completely full. Sebastian Marroquin, the son of Pablo Escobar, flew half-way round the world to speak after “Sins of my Father”. He received a standing ovation with his answer to the very first question.
