The Hans-Fallada-Society was founded in 1991 on the initiative of the enthusiastic members of the “Freundeskreis Hans Fallada”, which had been established in 1983. By January 2011 there were 220 members and during the summer months every year thousands of visitors pass through the museum. The Hans-Fallada-Society is in cooperation with numerous literary societies and is a member of the ALG (Association of Literary Societies and Memorial Sites).
The society is a living memorial to the life and prose of Hans Fallada and has set itself the goal of securing and preserving for the use of the public the literary and other relics of Hans Fallada by organizing readings, literary events and exhibitions, as well as publications.
In addition, the Hans-Fallada-Society pursues and supports academic research on the writer.
You can find more information on this matter on our website.
Though international in its connections and outreach, the society’s focus is Hans Fallada’s home in Carwitz.
