For many, Anna Seghers was a woman who brought a new perspective to the experience of the second world war. She wrote, not of military matters or strategy, but of the human, moral conditions and repercussions of the conflict.
She spent the last 30 years of her life, from 1955, at this little house on the outskirts of Berlin, which is now run as a museum that is open to the public.
Nothing has been changed since Segher's death. Her massive collection of rare books (numbering some 10,000) is still in place, as is her old typewriter - and it's all thanks to the preservation work of the Academy of Art in Berlin.
