Episode 47 - Milena Jesenská

Episode 47 - Milena Jesenská

 

In this edition of the Dead Ladies Show Podcast, DLS co-founder Katy Derbyshire brings you the story of Milena Jesenská live from the stage of the Berlin translation festival Translationale, held at the Collegium Hungaricum. 

 

A journalist, writer, editor and translator, Milena Jesenská is often simply called “Kafka’s Milena” for her connection to the famous writer. But her life and work deserve far more attention. 

 

Born in Prague in the former Austria-Hungary, now Czech Republic, Milena Jesenská straddled cultures and languages, politics and ideologies. As part of an underground resistance, she helped many refugees to escape the dangers of National Socialism, but was captured by the Gestapo and died in a concentration camp in Germany.

Thanks to the Translationale, the Toledo Program, and Weltlesebühne for inviting us. 

 

Our theme music is “Little Lily Swing” by Tri-Tachyon.

 

Thanks for listening! We’ll be back with a new episode next month.
