Hermann Gundert Year

The town of Calw in Baden-Württemberg is hosting a series of events in honour of Hermann Gundert that will run until August 2014. Gundert, grandfather of the famous writer, poet and painter Hermann Hesse, was born in Stuttgart and spent much of his life in nearby Calw. He also lived for many years in India, where he translated the Bible and other works into Malayalam, and compiled a dictionary and systematic grammar. Over the course of the year, there will be Ausstellungen, guided tours, talks and even cookery courses shedding light on the life of Hermann Gundert.
