Am Ende der Strasse links: Eine Reise durch die ehemalige DDR
At the End of the Street on the Left: A Trip Through the former GDR
When Hans Schaufus retired from the Longview Public Library, he embarked on a serious photographic undertaking between 2006 and 2014, resulting in a book published by a German publisher in 2015 entitled Am Ende der Strasse links: Eine Reise durch die ehemalige DDR (At the End of the Street on the Left: A Trip Through the former GDR).
Attendance is open to the public. There is no charge to attend.
Hans Schaufus was born in Baltimore in 1940. In the midst of the Cold War, he was called back to active duty during the Berlin Crisis. Although his unit was never sent to Berlin, the curiosity of seeing the city was too great to ignore. Not wanting to go to Germany as a tourist, decided to live and work there during between 1962-64. Hans was fortunate to have had an uncle who was a professional press photographer and under his tutelage was taught the rudiments of composition, angles, light and darkroom printing. During his time in Germany, he visited East Berlin several times unaware that he would one day return to East Germany and document the changeover from the communist era to today's modern landscape.
Colleges, libraries and writers are natural community partners. Both seek to reach out to readers, stimulate thinking and engage people in the pursuit of ideas. Northwest Voices author events are held quarterly during the academic year (Fall, Winter, Spring). Attendance is open to the public. There is no charge to attend.
Northwest Voices is funded by Lower Columbia College Foundation, Longview Public Library, Friends of the Longview Public Library, Longview Library Foundation, Washington State Arts Commission, and Humanities Washington.
Most notably, Fuller established the Northwest Voices program, bringing local and regional authors to our community...
