Carolyn Gammon and Christiane Hemker, authors of Johanna Krause Twice Persecuted: Surviving in Nazi Germany and Communist East Germany will be reading at The University of Waterloo. Books will be available from Words Worth Books.

About the book:
Persecuted as a Jew, both under the Nazis and in post-war East Germany, Johanna Krause (1907–2001) courageously fought her way through life with searing humour and indomitable strength of character. Johanna Krause Twice Persecuted is her story and is part of the Laurier Life Writing series.

Born and raised in New Brunswick, Carolyn Gammon moved to Berlin in 1992. Her poetry, prose, and essays have appeared in anthologies in North America and Great Britain, and in translation.

Christiane Hemker lived in various German cities before moving to Dresden in 1993. Her field is archaeology, in which she is widely published. Her volunteer work with union and social politics, focusing on women’s rights, introduced her to Johanna Krause and her story.
