Christa Wolf died on Thursday, December 1, 2011. The many reactions from the German press, include: Die Tageszeitung marks the passing of the former East German author Christa Wolf by describing her as a “cultural monument”. Various voices recall the earnest humoir of her speech of 4 November 1989 on Alexanderplatz and describe her importance in the West during the 1980s: “Christa was cool. She was avant-garde, also in the West. The misused female body is the truly and singularly enthralling element of her work.” Die Welt remembers the highpoint of her fame in the 1980s and the bitter debate about the later disclosure of her essentially insignificant role as the informer “Margarete”. And Tagesspiegel states: “She was always only interested in understanding the mistake as a path. Skepticism was for her the best means of combating the self-assurance of all ideological thought, which is why she never gave up hope that a right life must be possible in the midst of a wrong one, because over the long term many rights must be able to correct widespread wrongs.” ~ signandsight.com
