Product description


Christa is a young girl in Hitler's Germany; she survives to embrace the new order but her idealism withers as crass materialists corrode its dream. Her story is the story of a whole generation, and a celebration of the unique value of each human being and all human life.

About the Author

Christa Wolf is one of Germany's preeminent literary figures. Her extensive body of work has been published in many countries, and she is the recipient of numerous awards, including the prestigious Buchner Prize and the Vienna State Prize for European Literature.
