Exhibition “Mirjam Pressler: Writing her Fate” 

Publié le 25 March 2024

From 19 April to 1 September 2024 at the Jewish Museum Frankfurt

Mirjam Presseler (1940-2019) was a great translator, notably of the Diary of Anne Frank and of Israeli works by Amos Oz, Zeruya Shalev, Batya Gur, etc. She was also an author and painter. This exhibition invites visitors to enter her imaginary world and explore their own creativity, pushing back the boundaries. The author’s imagination was nourished by her personal experiences of a difficult childhood and her need to escape to creativity and sources of happiness, particularly in her relationship with Judaism and Israel.
