Cécile Wajsbrot: Du silence à la voix

The work of Cécile Wajsbrot, the novelist, essayist, translator and writer of radio plays who lives in Berlin and Paris, was the main focus of a colloquium which Roswitha Böhm and I organised at the Centre for French Studies at the Freie Universität Berlin. Our edited collection on European memorial culture was based on this colloquium and is the first academic publication on Wajsbrot’s oeuvre. The collection contains an interview with the author, the first publication of her short story La ville de l’oiseau in the French original and translated into German, as well as international scholarly articles.
