Monika Seifert. Pädagogin der antiautoritären Erziehung: A biography by Wilma Aden-Grossmann

David Gribble


This book, as yet only available in German, tells the story of a young woman disabled by polio who in the 1960s set up what she called a “repression-free” nursery which strongly influenced the creation of hundreds of similar nurseries and kindergartens all over Germany. It falls roughly into four sections: an account of her early life, an exposition of her educational principles, the story of what actually happened in her school and a short section about what happened to her after she left it.
