Iris Berben Reads Paula Buber

Paula Buber's almost unknown work should be understood against the backdrop of the radical upheaval of her epoch. In close collaboration with her husband, Martin Buber, she was involved in the design of some of his most famous works. A self-proclaimed "philozionist," she already published her own works in 1901. Under the pseudonym Georg Munk, she wrote stories and the novel Muckensturm which portrays the beginnings of Nazism in a small German town.
