The Novels of Sigrid Weidenweber

Sigrid Weidenweber
Born in Germany in 1941, Sigrid Weidenweber remembers the horrific aftermath of fascism. At the end of the war, she found herself living under communism. After the Berlin Wall was built, she managed to escape the repressive environment with the help of friends and a French passport. To this day she does not speak French.
She holds degrees in medical technology, psychology and an Honorary Doctor of Letters from Concordia University of Portland, Oregon for her trilogy “The Volga Flows Forever.” In her trilogy she brings to life Catherine the Great in her multiple roles as monarch, woman–lover, mother, grandmother and head of the general staff of the army, in Volume one. The following two historical volumes deal with the Volga Germans brought to Russia by Catherine’s edict.
Three years ago she moved to Santa Rosa Valley, California from Portland Oregon. She has passionately embraced California together with her family that also resides here.
She is a grandmother of two great boys, with whom she hikes and swims.
She lectures on anthropological and historical subjects and actively supports the arts. For the symphony she raised funds with a monologue as Catherine the Great.
At present she is writing a memoire of her childhood during WW II and her youth spent under the German communistic regime.   ©2003-2012
