BERLIN (AP) - The German-Jewish writer Angelika Schrobsdorff, whose bestselling works included a book about her mother growing up in Germany and then having to flee when the Nazis came to power, has died. She was 88.

German news agency dpa reports Schrobsdorff died in Berlin last weekend, but didn’t have any further details.

German publishing house dtv on Tuesday confirmed Schrobsdorff’s death. On its home page the publisher wrote that Schrobsdorff was born in Freiburg in 1927 and escaped from Germany to Bulgaria with her mother and sister in 1939. After the war, she lived in Munich and Paris, where she was married to Jewish filmmaker Claude Lanzmann for several years. In 1983, Schrobsdorff immigrated to Israel. She moved back to Germany in 2006. Her books were translated into several languages.
