Es ist ein Tag wie jeder andere im Leben des fünfjährigen Saroo: Auf dem Bahnhof einer indischen Kleinstadt sucht er nach Münzen und Essensresten. Schließlich schläft er vor Erschöpfung in einem wartenden Zug ein. Der fährt den kleinen Jungen ans andere Ende von Indien, nach Kalkutta. Völlig alleine an einem der gefährlichsten Orte der Welt schlägt er sich wochenlang auf der Straße durch, landet im Waisenhaus und gelangt so zu den Brierleys, die Saroo ein neues Zuhause in Australien schenken. Fünfundzwanzig Jahre später macht sich Saroo mit Hilfe von Google Earth auf die Suche nach seiner leiblichen Familie. Am Bildschirm fährt er Nacht für Nacht das Zugnetz von Indien ab. Das Unglaubliche passiert: Er findet ein Dorf, das dem Bild in seiner Erinnerung entspricht – und macht sich auf den Weg ...

Indigenous peoples have long sought the return of ancestral human remains and associated artifacts from western museums and scientific institutions. Since the late 1970s their efforts have led museum curators and researchers to re-evaluate their practices and policies in respect to the scientific uses of human remains. New partnerships have been established between cultural and scientific institutions and indigenous communities. Human remains and culturally significant objects have been returned to the care of indigenous communities, although the fate of bones and burial artifacts in numerous collections remains unresolved and, in some instances, the subject of controversy. In this book, leading researchers from a wide range of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences reflect critically on the historical, cultural, ethical and scientific dimensions of repatriation. Through various case studies they consider the impact of repatriation: what have been the benefits, and in what ways has repatriation given rise to new problems for indigenous people, scientists and museum personnel. It features chapters by indigenous knowledge custodians, who reflect upon recent debates and interaction between indigenous people and researchers in disciplines with direct interests in the continued scientific preservation of human remains.

First it was a media sensation. Then it became the #1 international bestseller A Long Way Home. Now it’s Lion, the major motion picture starring Dev Patel, Nicole Kidman, and Rooney Mara—nominated for six Academy Awards! This is the miraculous and triumphant story of Saroo Brierley, a young man who used Google Earth to rediscover his childhood life and home in an incredible journey from India to Australia and back again... At only five years old, Saroo Brierley got lost on a train in India. Unable to read or write or recall the name of his hometown or even his own last name, he survived alone for weeks on the rough streets of Calcutta before ultimately being transferred to an agency and adopted by a couple in Australia. Despite his gratitude, Brierley always wondered about his origins. Eventually, with the advent of Google Earth, he had the opportunity to look for the needle in a haystack he once called home, and pore over satellite images for landmarks he might recognize or mathematical equations that might further narrow down the labyrinthine map of India. One day, after years of searching, he miraculously found what he was looking for and set off to find his family. A Long Way Home is a moving, poignant, and inspirational true story of survival and triumph against incredible odds. It celebrates the importance of never letting go of what drives the human spirit: hope.

De Bezeichnung "Monster" bezieht sich weder auf Wesen aus furchtbaren Alpträumen noch auf den gleichnamigen Energy-Drink, sondern auf die Als Miras Mutter nach einem anstrengenden Arbeitstag nach Hause kommt, findet sie auf dem Tisch einen Brief ihrer Tochter: "Ich werde drei Tage am Meer sein. Ich kann nicht mehr. Ich will, dass sich in unserer Familie etwas ändert! Letzte Warnung!!!" Das Stück erzählt die Geschichte einer Jugendlichen, die aus ihrem scheinbar perfekt behüteten Elternhaus wegläuft, in parallelen Schnitten zwischen der verzweifelten Suche der Mutter und der Flucht der Tochter ans Meer. Als Mira schließlich nach Hause zurückkehrt, hat nicht nur sie sich verändert ... "Letzte Warnung" ist in Sprache und Form nah dran an der aktuellen Wirklichkeit von Teenagern und beleuchtet in einer spannenden Geschichte deren Hoffnungen und Ängste hinter der heilen Fassade einer typischen Kleinfamilie. Der Text entstand aus der Zusammenarbeit von Lorenz Hippe mit Hamburger Schülerinnen des Marion Dönhoff Gymnasiums im Rahmen des Projektes "TAtSch - TheaterAutoren treffen Schule" und wurde durch das Kooperationsprojekt des Kinder- und Jugendtheaterzentrums in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland und des Deutschen Literaturfonds e.V. mit Mitteln der Kulturstiftung des Bundes finanziert. Die Teilnehmer der Autorengruppe entwarfen aus eigenen Erlebnissen Figuren und Plot und schrieben ein Jahr lang gemeinsam mit dem Autor an ihrem Stück.(Quelle: Deutscher Theaterverlag).
