Dimension2: Contemporary German-Language Literature

Rose Ausländer was born in Czernowitz (Bukovina) in 1907. Prosecuted as a Jew by the Nazis, she survived the Holocaust and in 1946 emigrated to the USA, where she had lived earlier from 1921 to 1931. In 1965, she finally returned to Germany, to Düsseldorf, where she died in 1988. She is primarily known for her poetry, for which she received several awards. Central themes of her poems, such as experiencing loneliness and yearning for a sense of home or belonging, underlie her brief story, "Mann im Mond," which she wrote at the end of the nineteen sixties as a reaction to the Apollo moon project. In her will, she designated the Heinrich-Heine-Institut as the heir of her unpublished works. Helmut Braun is editing her works for Fischer Publishing House.
