I am a bit of a magician … Otfried Preußler’s story worlds
21.07. – 12.11.2023
“I am a bit of a magician …”, said Otfried Preußler about his work as a writer. The Little Water Sprite and The Little Witch, the Robber Hotzenplotz and Krabat are classics of German-language children’s and youth literature and continue to enchant children and adults to this day. Preußler found his story materials and characters in his northern Bohemian homeland, the Jizera Mountains. To mark the 100th anniversary of the author’s birth, the Sudeten German Museum is looking for traces of him in a special exhibition.
