Writer abbas maroufi

Maroufi went to Pakistan before eventually moving to Germany, where he first stayed at Heinrich Boll House, in Duren, North Rhine-Westphalia, before moving to Berlin. Heinrich Boll House was the summer home of Heinrich Theodore Boll (1917-1985), considered one of Germany’s foremost post-World War II writers. Since its inauguration in June 1991, it has served as a sanctuary and scholarship home for authors and artists worldwide. Maroufi opened the Art and Literature Khaneh Hedayat Persian Bookstore in Berlin’s famous Kant Street and restarted publishing the monthly Gardoun.
