Paul Celan

Paul Celan, one of the twentieth century’s greatest German-language poets, was born to Jewish parents in Czernowitz, then part of Romania, in 1920. The survivor of a forced-labor camp, he lost his parents to the Nazi genocide. After brief periods in postwar Bucharest and Vienna, he settled in Paris, where, alongside his work as a poet, he taught German at the École Normale Supérieure and translated from many languages. He died in Paris, by his own hand, in 1970. (updated 4/2011)
