judith herzberg - crankybox

Judith Herzberg has created an extensive body of work during the more than thirty years that she has been active. She has written poems, essays, plays, film scripts and television dramas, and has many translations and adaptations to her name.

Judith Herzberg made her debut as a poet at the beginning of the sixties. During the seventies she began to write for the stage, stimulated by the Institute for Theater Research of Nederland.

“In my memory sticks a horrible story, of which I would be ashamed if it turned out not to have happened, because it would then mean that I imagined it.” With these words Judith Herzberg begins an autobiographical story, which appeared in 1992 and deals with something that happened when she was ten years old.
