Further Biographical Context for Wolfgang Hildesheimer

Wolfgang Hildesheimer was born in 1916 and was largely influenced creatively by the 1930s. Globally this period can be best characterised by the conflict between the world’s leading political philosophies - Marxist Socialism, Capitalist Democracy, and the Totalitarianism of both Communism and Fascism. The era took a sinister turn with the advent of National Socialism in Germany, and Adolf Hitler’s rise to power in 1933. The decade would culminate in the inset on the Second World War; a political and social tumult that preoccupied not only artists, but great swathes of the world’s population.
