Und außerdem war es mein Leben
Elefanten Press, Berlin 1994, 352 pages
‘I want to set everything down as it lives in my memory’. Elfriede Brüning, born 1910, tells of her childhood under the German Empire, her political and literary career in the Weimar Republic and her resistance and survival during the Third Reich. After the persecution, repression and war, she cherishes the great hope, which she shares with millions, of building a lasting socialist state. An illusion, as the divorced, single mother has to admit with the fall of the Berlin Wall.
