Felix Mitterer

Jägerstätter - a play by Felix Mitterer

Felix Mitterer’s gripping drama Jägerstätter is based on the life and death of the martyr Franz Jägerstätter (1907-1943), an Austrian farmer who refused to fight for Hitler because of his Catholic faith. Mitterer depicts Franz, who was beatified by Pope Benedict XVI in 2007, as a courageous but struggling and insecure human being—and not at all as a saint.


Changing Addresses

Changing Adresses


This volume of contemporary Austrian literature was first published by Innsbruck University Press under the heading of Wechselnde Anschriften (2008). Eleven of the twenty-one authors from the German edition are published in the selection presented here. These writers largely hail from Western Austria (Tyrol and Vorarlberg) and the South Tyrol, a largely German-speaking part of the historic county of Tirol, now the province of Alto Adige in Northern Italy.

Blossoms in Snow


Blossoms in Snow


Thirty-five authors, through seventy-nine poems and short prose pieces, tell the story of the twentieth century’s greatest refugee crisis. An English translation brings their work to English-speaking readers for the first time, side by side with the original German.

The poems contextualize past and present responses to issues of asylum, reflect on the state of being stateless, draw parallels between the United States and Austria, and resonate deeply with our own contemporary geopolitical landscape.

Blossoms in Snow collects poems by Rose Ausländer, Hermann Broch, Mimi Grossberg, and over thirty other refugees who escaped Nazi Austria.
