Gunter Grass

Gunter Grass
Often cited as ‘Germany’s collective conscience’ and commonly regarded as the country’s greatest living poet, novelist and playwright, Nobel Prize winner Gunter Grass was born in the Free City of Danzig in 1927. Although he has spent most of his life in Germany, much of his work references the places he spent his childhood in the Gdansk (German Danzig) district of Wrzeszcz (Langfuhr) including his family’s home and his schools which survived the war despite the huge damage the city suffered.
