Graubünden Cantonal Library

The Graubünden Cantonal Library currently houses an exhibition on the life and work of Mariella Mehr. Known as an intrepid writer and for her commitment to the Yenish community, she is one of Graubünden's most important writers.

Mariella Mehr was separated from her mother at an early age and grew up in homes and educational institutions. Responsible for this was the "Hilfswerk für die Kinder der Landstrasse" of the Pro Juventute Foundation, which took over 600 Yenish children away from their parents during the years 1926-1973 and placed them in homes and with foster parents. Mariella Mehr's works are characterized by their radicalism and socio-political urgency. Her main work includes the three novels: "Daskind", "Brandzauber" and "Angeklagt". These are available along with other works by her to be borrowed and read.
