How Netty Reiling became Anna Seghers
The theme of Anna Seghers’ work is the self-liberation of her literary characters. To what extent does this liberation have biographical features? An approach to the transformation from sheltered daughter to headstrong writer.
The Anna Seghers Museum in Berlin Adlershof preserves this writer’s home and study as it was during her lifetime, and presents a permanent showcase exhibition on her life and work. The Museums original furnishings include Anna Seghers’ extensive private library and many personal mementoes.
In addition to the regular guided tours on Tuesdays and Thursdays, the Anna Seghers Museum offers themed tours.
