Distinguished Kar May researcher and author, among others of "The man who was Old Shatterhand"
The respected Karl May researcher Christian Heermann (born September, 11, 1936 in Chemnitz) died on November 27, 2017. Heermann was u.a. From 1993 to 2013 Chairman of the Scientific Advisory Board Karl May House Hohenstein Ernstthal and for many years Chairman of the Karl May Circle of Friends Leipzig. Even in GDR times, he published the Karl May biography "The Man Who was Old Shatterhand", updated in 2002 under the title " Winnetous Blutsbruder" (Karl-May-Verlag). A settlement with the GDR authorities appeared in 1995 under the title "Old Shatterhand Rode Not on Behalf of the Working Class".
In KARL MAY & Co. Nr. 95, an interview with Heermann by Jenny Florstedt was published under the title "Karl May was and is a constant companion". "The May phenomenon survives through its work - despite all the weaknesses - with the big dreams. The fulfillment of these dreams despite an extremely bad starting position showed readers again and again that disadvantages of life can be compensated," said Heermann.
