About the Author: Herta Müller

Herta Müller was born in Niţchidorf, Timiş County, Romania, the daughter of Swabian farmers. Her family was part of Romania's German minority and her mother was deported to a labour camp in the Soviet Union after World War II.

She read German studies and Romanian literature at Timişoara University. In 1976, Müller began working as a translator for an engineering company, but in 1979 was dismissed for her refusal to cooperate with the Securitate, the Communist regime's secret police. Initially, she made a living by teaching kindergarten and giving private German lessons.

Her first book was published in Romania (in German) in 1982, and appeared only in a censored version, as with most publications of the time.

In 1987, Müller left for Germany with her husband, novelist Richard Wagner. Over the following years she received many lectureships at universities in Germany and abroad.

In 1995 Müller was awarded membership to the German Academy for Writing and Poetry, and other positions followed. In 1997 she withdrew from the PEN centre of Germany in protest of its merge with the former German Democratic Republic branch.

The Swedish Academy awarded the 2009 Nobel Prize in Literature to Müller, "who, with the concentration of poetry and the frankness of prose, depicts the landscape of the dispossessed".

She currently lives in Berlin, Germany.

Dentro de la historia de persecuciones que diversos pueblos y etnias sufrieron durante la II Guerra Mundial, los rumanos de origen alemán fueron perseguidos por los soviéticos, quienes los capturaban sospechando su potencial colaboración con los nazis, con quienes compartían lengua y orígenes. En las más penosas condiciones, eran luego capturados y enviados a Rusia en un largo trayecto, durante el cual sufrían el frío, el hambre, desesperación y mucho dolor. El destino, no mucho mejor, eran los campos de trabajo.

Herta Müller conoció este capítulo histórico, relativamente desconocido, a través de su compatriota y amigo, el poeta Oskar Pastior. Mediante este relato individual, la ganadora del premio nobel pudo destilar en palabras una historia de enorme intensidad que nos transporta a un viaje que llega más allá de la resistencia física y bucea en las profundidades del alma humana.
