“… tough, brilliant, unobjectionable …” The Writer Paula Buber (1877–1958)

The writer Paula Buber has often been overshadowed by her famous husband, philosopher of religion Martin Buber, whom she married in 1907. Born Paula Winkler in Munich, she distanced herself early on from her parents’ Catholicism and felt increasingly drawn to Judaism, declaring herself a “philozionist” by 1901.
