»The texts are devastating, amazingly mature lyrical descriptions of fate by 14 to 18-year-old adolescents documenting the story of their escape. These poetic signs of life recall the work of German exiles such as Else Lasker-Schüler.«


The award ceremony will take place on 9 February 2018 in Wuppertal, where there will also be a reading by the young poets.
