Review by David Gribble, Independent Scholar

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.
