Abstract:

Traces the life of the German writer Anna Seghers, born Netti Reiling in 1900 in Mainz to a wealthy Jewish family. She married Laszlo Radvanyi, a Hungarian Jewish communist, in 1925 and joined the German Communist Party in 1928. Pp. 236-436 relate her experiences, literary production, and cultural political activities from the 1930s until the end of World War II. Her novel "Die Gefährten" (1932), which promotes struggle against the prevailing psychological and social conditions as the only means for the individual to reach a meaningful place in history, led her to be arrested by the Gestapo, though it cannot be read as a clear warning against the fascist threat in Germany. In 1933 Seghers left Berlin, with her family, for Paris. After German troops invaded France, she fled to Marseille and a year later to Mexico. Seghers' mother perished in a death camp near Lublin, and Seghers herself returned to Germany in 1947. Although she was persecuted both as a communist and a Jew, she refused to attribute special importance to Jewish fate. This would have contradicted her communist convictions and faith in the popular front against fascism. She believed that racial and religious persecution could be abolished only through social change.
