Text and reading by Sonja Hilzinger

Anna Seghers in Wiepersdorf

Saturday, November 19, 2022, 00:01 a.m.


(in German language)

Anna Seghers wrote in 1969: “I miss Wiepersdorf very much and it’s been a long time now since I was there last ... Today it seems to me as if I had never been so carefree and happy, for no particular reason, as when we were staying there and roaming through the forest.” After she returned from Mexican emigration and until the 1950s, Wiepersdorf was a place of retreat and where she could work undisturbed.

On the occasion of Anna Segher's 112th birthday on November 19, 2022, we publish a video in which literary scholar Dr. Sonja Hilzinger talks about Anna Segher's special relationship with Schloss Wiepersdorf.
