Alena Wagnerová is a writer, oral historian, translator and editor whose works focus on the lives and works of major personalities, such as Milena Jesenská, Sidonie Nádherná and Franz Kafka. She has produced a number of books looking at the coexistence of Czechs and Germans in the border areas, including their forced and voluntary departures, and was one of the first to explore the stories of German anti-fascists. On the Havel Channel Alena Wagnerová will introduce her slim volume of introspective prose Dvojitá kaple (The Double Chapel) (Maraton), “an intimate testimony about the childhood, adolescence and maturing of a young woman, while relationships between parents and children make up the axis of the narrative.” German Studies expert Šárka Krtková will conduct the interview with the author.
