Street named after Irmgard Keun (Kassel, Germany)

    Irmgard Keun (b. Charlottenburg, German Empire, 1905 – d. 1982, Cologne, Federal Republic of Germany) was a German novelist. Noted for her portrayals of the life of women, she is described as « often reduced to the bold sexuality of her writing, [yet] a significant author of the late Weimar period and die Neue Sachlichkeit.” She fled the Nazi regime and lived in exile in the Netherlands and the United States.
