Salomea Genin

Salomea Genin

In 1928, Salomea Genin's Jewish parents came from Krakow to Berlin, where she was born in 1932. The family fled to Melbourne, Australia in May 1939. At 12 years old Genin became a member of the Eureka Youth League, a Communist youth organisation. After finishing her training as a typist, she worked as a secretary. She returned to Berlin in 1954 and immigrated to the GDR in 1963, where she worked as a interpreter, translator and English teacher. In 1982 she realized that she was living in a police state and became suicidal. Her first book Shayndl and Salomea saved her life. In her second book Ich folgte den falschen Göttern - eine australische Jüdin in der DDR (I Followed False Gods – an Australian Jew in the GDR), she describes the path her life took up to the beginning of the 90s. Today she only has one message: the most important thing in life is to be able to love, and to forgive. At the Gorki she's part of the ensemble in Atlas des Kommunismus.
