On February 23, 2016, the Eisler-Haus Leipzig e.V. was founded in the Gewandhaus in Leipzig. On April 25, 2016, we were entered in the register of associations of the city of Leipzig and received recognition of charitable status from the tax office. We are a group of volunteer citizens, including composers, singers, music students, musicologists, journalists and publicists, and as institutional members the International Hanns Eisler Society in Berlin and the Gewandhaus in Leipzig. Chairmen of the association are Steffen Schleiermacher (photo left) and Werner Kopfmüller. Roland H. Dippel is the managing director.
In the sense of a vivid remembrance, the association sees its task in giving the person and the work of Hanns Eisler a stronger presence again in his native city of Leipzig.
