Georg Scherg in Hermannstadt. Hundert Jahre seit der Geburt des Schriftstellers und Literaturprofessors

  • The fulfillment of a century since the birth of writer and philologist Georg Scherg (1917-2002) is a good opportunity to recall his life and work. Born in Brasov, Scherg arrived in Sibiu only accidentally. Only later in his life he stated here for a longer time. He was appointed Head of the German Department at the recently established University of History and Philology in Sibiu in 1970. For two decades, until 1990, he had a fruitful activity, both as a teacher and as a prolific author and laborious translator of Romanian literature. He participates in research projects and symposiums of philological literary history, his efforts in this field being rewarded by his appointment as doctor honoris causa of the University „Lucian Blaga“ (1997). He was also involved in Sibiu’s literary life, leading for a long period of time a circle of artists attracted to the poetic creation.
