Dimension2: Contemporary German-Language Literature

Barbara Honigmann was born in East Berlin in 1949, after her parents had returned from British exile in 1947. She studied theater at the Humboldt University from 1967 to 1972 and, then, worked as a stage director. Since 1975 she has been a freelance writer. In 1984 she left the GDR to move away from "a woeful diaspora in East Berlin" to Strasburg, France, to become part of the "Alsatian Jewry," a vibrant community of more than 15,000 Jews; she still lived in Strasburg. Homigmann works as a painter and writer, and she writes prose and for the theater.
