Another politician, and she in fact appeared on a stamp; it shows that Angela Merkel had a huge heritage of women politicians lined up behind her. Dr Gertrud Baumer was also a prolific writer. What amazing women, and these are only five out of seventy-seven, each of whom looks extraordinary. The only murky thing is, sometimes, their political affiliation, and also one has a sense that very few of the women were Jewish (although there is Elisabeth Bergner of course), however without googling each of the names that is just a guess and may be quite wrong. Is there an equivalent book for British women?
