Reise durch Zeit und Raum
Nach „Kaspar war sein Name“ hat Richard Steel in seiner Muttersprache unter dem Titel „Blossoming Starlight“ einen weiteren Themen-Gedichtband für das „Kind Europas“ komponiert, und das in des Wortes Bedeutung. Denn diese „Poems for Kaspar Hauser and other friends“ bestechen nicht zuletzt einmal mehr durch Winfried Altmanns kongeniale Gestaltungsarbeit. Aber auch durch das schöne Coverbild von Greg Tricker, „Kaspar und die Engel“.

New Perspectives, Research and Developments
Edited by Robin Jackson; Foreword by Andrew Kendrick
Publication Date: 21 Apr 2011
About the Author:
Robin Jackson was a lecturer at Aberdeen
College of Education before becoming
Principal Lecturer in Special Education at King Alfred’s
College, Winchester and
Principal of Linn Moor Special School in Aberdeen. He hasworked
with Camphill for many years, including as a Development and
TrainingCo-ordinator, and is currently a consultant to Camphill
Rudolf Steiner Schools in Aberdeen.
He edited Holistic Special Education:
Camphill Principles and Practice (2006)
and wrote Hermann Gross:
Art and Soul (2008), both published by Floris Books.
This important book brings together research from scholars
and experts in avariety of disciplines to explore a broad
range of issues which affect Camphil l life. The essays examine
social, political and educational topics as diverse asspiritual
needs, residential childcare, disabled identity, working with
autistic children and the development of Camphill communities
around the world. The lack of easily accessible literature
about Camphill communities has contributed to a common and
unjustified perception of Camphill as ‘closed’ communities
which have little interest in communicating with the ‘the
outsideworld’. Some influential officials and practitioners
who determine educationand social-work policy and practice
still know little or nothing about Camphill,which increases
the risk of misunderstanding and threatens the future of Camphill
communities. This book seeks not only to
bridge that gap, but to demonstrate to a wider audience the
unique and inspiring qualities of Camphill
This book is essential reading for anyone with an interest
in the provision of services for children and adults with
‘This is a remarkable book. Rarely does one find a program
of any kind willing to open itself up to such intensive
internal and external critical examination. Through the wide-ranging
perspectives presented, the reader will
indeed “discover Camphill”, and find it to be an
impressive global movement in support of the integrity of
persons and the wholeness of human life.’

School of Child and Youth Care at the University of Victoria,
RECOLLECTIONS OF MY LIFE
of the book _____________________________________
2010 marks the 70th anniversary of the founding
of the first Camphill community. Over the course of the
year attention will focus on the contribution of Karl Koenig
to this significant development and in that process the
character of Karl Koenig will almost certainly come under
the spotlight. However any attempt to examine Karl Koenig's
character which ignores the influence of his mother cannot
do other than present a partial and incomplete picture.
Bertha Koenig was a redoubtable, resourceful and resilient
woman whose influence upon her son cannot be underestimated.
Indeed the very characteristics so clearly shown in her
life and revealed in her life history - Meine Kindheits
und Lebenserinnerungen - can be seen mirrored in the life
of Karl Koenig. While he may have acquired his intellect
from his bookish father, he appears to have inherited his
indomitable spirit from his mother. And it was with his
mother that the emotional bond was strongest. What is particularly
appealing in Bertha Koenig is the strong sense of mischief,
the ingrained rebellious streak and the high degree of fortitude
and resolve shown when confronted by misfortune and danger
particularly during the evil Nazi regime.
An English translation of Bertha Koenig's life history by
Robin Jackson is now available from the
199 North Deeside Road,
Bieldside, Aberdeen AB15 9EN.
