Heinrich Böll

Heinrich Böll is one of the most important and best-known writers of the Federal Republic of Germany. "Bound by the times and my contemporaries, to what my generation has lived through, experienced, seen, and heard," as he himself wrote, he was the critical chronicler of Germany’s history at mid-century.


The Heinrich-Boell-Foundation Brandenburg e.V. was founded in 1990 as an educational institution under the name “Brandung – workshop for civic education”. It is located in Potsdam, Germany. The name has been changed in 1999 as sixteen state-foundations and the federal Heinrich-Boell-Foundation developed into a confederation. While working inherently independent, the foundation is affiliated with the Green Party in Brandenburg.
