Alma M. Karlin

An extraordinary woman, a female creature, as she used to call herself, a writer, a worldwide traveller, an explorer, a polyglot, and a theosophist as well as a cosmopolite, Alma M. Karlin was a distinguished personality from Celje and is indelibly imprinted on the mind of the city and its inhabitants; in the Slovene cultural memory the knowledge and awareness about her literary, exploratory and spiritual transmission always strikes against the reproach about the nationality - " but she was German, she wrote in German". The time in which she grew up and matured into an individual was the age of decline and destruction of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, and the individuality had a greater meaning for Karlin as the nationality did.
