Short biography
Eine Frau in Berlin (English translation: A Woman in Berlin) was first published anonymously in 1954. An English-language version of the book, re-issued in 2005, listed Hannelore Marek, executor of Hillers' literary estate, as the copyright holder. Marta Hillers' identity as the author was revealed (against her wish) after her death by Jens Bisky, literary editor of the Süddeutsche Zeitung. Hillers was a magazine and newspaper journalist living in Berlin when the Soviets captured the city at the end of World War II. She kept a detailed diary, on which the book is based. She married in the 1950s and moved to Switzerland, giving up journalism. A Woman in Berlin was her only book. A film based on it was released in Germany and Poland in 2008.
