Stories, Political Writings and Autobiographical Works by Heinrich Boll
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Heinrichboll (1917-85) was one of the most outspoken of literary figures, "The Conscience of Germany" if not the West, in speaking upon the hypocrisies of both denazification and the wonder of German economic recovery during the 1950s. A wounded soldier himself, Boll was a champion of individual rights over the authority of the State. The year he won the Nobel Prize, there were also calls to revoke the award following Boll's article in "Der Spiegel" in defense of the constitutional rights or a terrorist group.
