Heinrich Böll, one of the most important German authors of the twentieth century, would have turned 100 on 21 December 2017. His novels, short stories and essays have been widely printed, reprinted and translated, broadcast on the radio and were school readings for several generations of students.
Böll's critical literary confrontation with the post-war political West Germany as well as his great commitment to freedom and human rights earned him a worldwide reputation. He was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature of 1972. In the showcase in the entrance hall of the university library a selection of books from the stock of the FU libraries to Böll's biography, individual editions, editions of works, as well as drawn novel schemes is exhibited.
