Helena Janeczek: The Girl With The Leica

Lesung I internationales literaturfestival berlin

In her award-winning novel, Helena Janeczek uses fragments of memory to enrich the portrait of and to pay tribute to the unusual photographer Gerda Taro, who was killed in the Spanish Civil War. »Without idealizing her, Janeczek gives her heroine a certain shimmer that is passed on to anyone who has had anything to do with her. An overwhelming young woman who was passionate about life.« [SZ]

The event will be held in German.
