Overview

Amazing People of Germany by Charles Margerison

Germany is a country rich in history for many reasons. In this exciting title, Amazing People Worldwide® would like to bring you face to face with some of the most influential and inspirational people of Germany. Everyone has heard of Beethoven and his masterpieces, but few know that he sought solace in music due to his sad childhood at the hands of an abusive and alcoholic father. Over 15 million people find pain relief every year using Aspirin, however Felix Hoffmann who discovered this household drug, received little public recognition. Explore the turbulent life of Marie-Elisabeth Luders, who worked tirelessly for the rights of women and children in a society that criticised her for being a single mother. Also, meet Gerhard Domagk and Robert Koch and discover how these amazing people devoted their time and energy to developments and innovations that made major contributions to the country of Germany. Each story comes to life through BioViews®. These are short biographical narratives, similar to interviews. They provide an easy way of learning about amazing people who made major contributions and changed our world.
