Herta Müller - Writing Against Terror (29 minutes)

This half hour documentary presents a rare and candid interview with Herta Müller, where she talks about her life growing up as part of a German speaking minority in rural Romania, her years of persecution at the hands of Ceasescu's secret police, and her subsequent defection to West Germany in 1987. The interview is interwoven with readings from Herta Müller's own work.
