Peter Huchel

Peter Huchel was born in a suburb of Berlin in 1903, but spent his formative years at his grandfather's farm in rural Brandenburg. He became a magazine editor until the oppressive East German regime eventually drove him into complete retirement in 1962. In 1971 he was allowed to resettle in West Germany, from which time he travelled widely. He died in 1981.
