The Villa Aurora & Thomas Mann House e.V. is a non-profit organization maintaining the former residence of Marta und Lion Feuchtwanger as an artists’ residency and venue for intellectual exchange. The house also serves as a reminder of the cultural heritage of the European exiles and furthers German-American cultural exchange. Since 2017 the organization also runs the Thomas Mann House in Pacific Palisades as a place for transatlantic encounters and debate.

The Ministry for Foreign Affairs and the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and Media make public funds available to further those goals.

However Villa Aurora & Thomas Mann House e.V. needs additional funds to continue the transatlantic dialogue by highlighting the works of returning artists through readings, art exhibitions, screenings and publications.

Donations also helped to restore the historic organ at Villa Aurora.

We are happy to confirm receipt of your donation in writing.

Thank you very much for your support.
