Anja Keith, Detlev Schöttker: Brecht, Paris und Bombenkrieg. Briefwechsel zwischen Gretha und Ernst Jünger
Lecture and Talk with the editors Anja Keith and Detlev Schöttker on Brecht, Paris und Bombenkrieg. Der Briefwechsel zwischen Gretha und Ernst Jünger at Literaturforum at Brecht-Haus
The correspondence between Gretha and Ernst Jünger from 1922 to 1960 goes far beyond a correspondence between spouses and provides insights into the private and everyday life of a couple between bohemia, family and war. The reading and conversation have three focal points: 1. letters in which both report on writer friends who formerly belonged to the circle around Bertolt Brecht; 2. letters about Ernst Jünger's time as an occupation officer in Paris; and 3. Gretha Jünger's letters about the air war in Hanover and the surrounding area, which the family survived only by chance.
