Berta Lask

Berta Lask was a German writer and journalist. She joined the Communist Party in 1923 and much of her published work is polemical. Sources identify her under several different names. Between her marriage to Louis Jacobsohn in 1901 and 1917 she used, for some purposes, the name Berta Jacobsohn. After the death of both her brothers in law, the couple changed their name to Jacobsohn-Lask, she wrote under the pseudonym "Gerhard Wieland". Berta Lask was born into a prosperous Jewish family in Wadowitz, a small industrialising town at that time in Galicia, a short distance to the southwest of Kraków, she was the third of her parents' four recorded children. Her parents had grown up in the north of Germany, despite living in Austria-Hungary still held Prussian nationality, her father, Leopold Lask, owned a paper factory in Falkenberg, far to the north. Her mother, Cerline Lask was a teacher; the elder of her brothers, Emil Lask, would achieve eminence as a neo-Kantian philosopher. In 1885 the family moved to Falkenberg in Brandenburg.

Berta Lask attended primary school in Berlin and a secondary school in Bad Freienwalde, a short distance to the northeast of the capital. Her mother was dismissive of her wish progress with her education, it was as a reaction against her mother's attitudes that Berta first made contact with political feminism. Through her brother Emil, three years her senior, she came into contact with other intellectual currents of the time. In her late teens she began her first forays into serious writing, it was during this period, in 1894/95, that she studied in Berlin with Helene Lange, gaining a reputation as a leading advocate of women's rights. In 1901 Berta Lask married Louis Jacobsohn, a neurologist and histologist, teaching at Berlin's Frederick-William University. During the next few years they had four recorded children. In 1912 her first unpublished stage work appeared under the title "Auf dem Hinterhof, vier Treppen links". Both her brothers were killed in the First World War. Through her husband's work as a doctor Lask became radicalised, which formed the context for her activism in the women's movement and her support for the October Revolution in Leningrad in 1917 and the November Revolution in Berlin in 1918.

After the war, between 1919 and 1921 she entitled two volumes of poetry reflective of the war experience and the deaths of her own brothers entitled "Stimmen" and "Rufe aus dem Dunkel". Along with her poetry, she published articles for "The Red Flag" and other less high-profile revolutionary newspapers. In 1923 she joined the established Communist Party in Berlin, she provided material for the party's Agitation and Propaganda group. Her output included the chorus "The call of the dead - speaking chorus to commemorate Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg", the stage pieces "Leuna 1921" and "Thomas Müntzer", children's books such as "Through Time on the Flying Horse" and "How Franz and Greta traveled to Russia", she had made her own first visit to Russia in 1925. During the Weimar period Berta Lask found herself before the judges charges with high treason several times, her published plays were confiscated and performances of them banned. Her works featured in trials launched against communist book sellers.

In 1927, the cases against her failed. Along with Johannes R. Becher, Frida Rubiner, Franz Carl Weiskopf and others she was a member of the planning committee and a founder member of the Association of Proletarian-Revolutionary Authors which they launched on 19 October 1928, with Lask becoming deputy secretary to the national executive in 1932, she was a member of the Protection League of German authors. Her work by now was chiefly restricted to journalism; the Nazis took power in January 1933 and lost little time in converting the German state into a one-party dictatorship. Political activity became illegal. Berta Lask was held in "protective custody" between March and June. After that in August 1933 she emigrated via Czechoslovakia to the Soviet Union, she lived in Moscow at least till 1936, by which time all three of her sons and her husband had relocated from Nazi Germany to the Soviet Union. Her husband, semi-retired before the Nazi take-over, had never involved himself in his wife's political activities arrived, using a tourist visa, only at the start of 1936, accompanied by her daughter in law and her baby grand daughter, Franziska.

In Moscow Berta Lask worked as a journalist. Moscow, like Paris, had welcomed large numbers of refugees from Nazi Germany, forced to flee because of their politics, their race, or both. There were several German language news publications following the Communist Party line, notably the Deutsche Zentral-Zeitung, published in Moscow by the German language section of the Comintern, to which Lask contributed, she was writing for "Zwei Welten" and for "Internationale Literatur" and contributing material to Radio Moscow. She published several books under the pseudonym "Gerhard Wieland", it has been sugges
