Anton Ottmann

  • Letters against forgetting
  • Literature

Anton Ottmann is working on the life story of Heidelberg’s Jewish entrepreneurial family Leopold and Rositta Oppenheimer and their sons Max and Hans. The parents were deported to an internment camp in Gurs in 1940, from where they wrote over 200 letters to their son Hans, who was forced to work on a French farm. The author has written a staged reading from these letters, which he will perform together with his wife Ursula, cabaret artist and author Friedrich E. Becht and former member of the Bundestag Gert Weisskirchen.

The Dielheim author Anton Ottmann writes for the daily press and publishes fiction books. He is currently working mainly on regional history documentaries.
