Short biography
Else Schüler was born into a prosperous German-Jewish family. She married Berthold Lasker, a physician, and kept the name Lasker-Schüler after her divorce nine years later. She was part of a lively literary circle in Berlin in the late 19th century. In 1903, she married George Lewin, who took the name Herwarth Walden. Else was the editor of Walden's magazine Der Sturm (The Storm) for several years and recruited other writers to it. In 1912, she and Walden were divorced, and Else lived a bohemian life in Berlin with many friends among the Expressionists. Else illustrated all of her books with her own drawings. She won the prestigious Kleist Prize for Literature in 1932, but the following year, after the Nazis came to power, she was banned from publishing. She emigrated to Switzerland and then settled in Jerusalem in 1937.
