FedCon 32 | Vortrag | Im Zeichen der Macht - Buchpräsentation | Dirk Bartholomä & Robert Eiba

The history of the German Star Wars fandom from 1978 – 1995

In this book presentation (Saturday, 11.05.2024, 14:00-15:00, Saal “Beethoven”), Dirk Bartholomä and Robert Eiba will take you back to the turbulent early days of the Star Wars fan scene in Germany. An exciting journey through time about the emergence of the first fan clubs, conventions and much more.

The book Im Zeichen der Macht by Star Wars veteran and author Marco Frömter is an exclusive FedCon Events production and you can purchase it directly at FedCon 32. And of course also in our Space Store.


This is what awaits you in this unique contemporary document:

For Im Zeichen der Macht, Star Wars expert Marco Frömter researched the eventful history of German Star Wars fan clubs over many years in close cooperation with numerous contemporary witnesses. Special attention was paid to the European Star Wars Fan Club, which began its galactic mission on December 1, 1984.

In exclusive interviews, contemporary witnesses, members, creatives and representatives of the management teams describe their experiences in German Star Wars fandom. They tell, for example, how Star Wars came to Germany in 1978 and shaped a completely new kind of fandom scene in this country.

Im Zeichen der Macht presents previously unpublished photos from private archives (for example from the 1983 Jedi-Con in Frankfurt) as well as archive treasures from over 40 years of club history. Additional chapters are dedicated to other German fan associations, such as Union of the Jedi, Star Wars Fan Association, Empire Munich, German Death Star,
Star Wars Fan Connection and many more.

Im Zeichen der Macht focuses on the period between 1978 and 1995 – the ultimate “Blast from the Past” for powerful Star Wars fans!
