- ZSCHORSCH, Gerald
- Gerald Zschorsch was
born in Elsterberg (in the East German Vogtland region) in 1951.
His activities protesting the Warsaw Pact invasion to end the "Prague
Spring" were not tolerated by the East German authorities;
he spent about five years in prison and then was deported to the
West. He moved to Frankfurt am Main, where he still lives. His collections
of poetry include Klappmesser (Jack Knife, 1983), Stadthunde
(City Dogs, 1986), Gambit (1989), and Spitznasen
(Pointed Noses, 1990).
