Dankesrede von Hisham Matar

It was not an easy thing to stage resistance against the Nazi regime in Germany. But two siblings did make an attempt, brother and sister Scholl with Die Weisse Rose. Their efforts ended in death.

About 25 years ago a literary prize was established carrying their names. This years winner is Hisham Matar, for the German translation of his book The Return. Here you will find his acceptance speech. Afbeeldingsresultaat voor hisham matar

I enjoy reading about Africa. New books. Old books. By African writers. By non-African writers. Novel. History. Travel. Biographies. Autobiographies. Politics. Colonialism. Poetry.
