was born in the Black Forest in 1962. Even as a child she devours her grandmother’s books like the wolf Little Red Ridinghood. She examines blood samples in the clinic laboratory and in her leisure time she likes being in the open countryside. Sometimes she loses her way and gets lost in early centuries … or in dusty archives and museums where she explores the living conditions of the past. Birgit Hermann has three grown up children and lives together with her husband in Titisee-Neustadt.
