Six days after the first moon landing, Paula Macedo Weiß was born in Brazil, her family belonging to the country's politically engaged middle class. As a young woman, she moves to Germany to study law and becomes a successful lawyer. When she started her own family with four children, she gave up her profession as a lawyer and devoted herself extensively to cultural issues in Frankfurt, as well as in larger contexts and institutions. Her book is an expression of a social alertness and a »sense of community.«
