Born in 1945 in Meissen/Sachsen, Germany (my pregnant mum was evacuated to Meissen due to heavy bombing of Berlin and the progress of the war front towards Berlin in winter 1944/1945).
I returned to Berlin in 1953, grew up in Berlin and live here since then.

1964 - 1971 Study of classics, history and geography at Free University Berlin
1974 - 2007 Working as grammar school teacher (doing a lot of film, photo and writing work if time left)
