This site displays various underrepresented aspects of Luise Gottsched's youth. Growing up in Danzig, her family and childhood friendships, the town and its historical events such as the siege of Danzig in 1734 all influenced deeply the person she became. Some of the major events are recorded here to illustrate this influence. The page also provides information on overlooked topics such as Luise Gottsched's non-literary interests. The page will subsequently present information on Johann Christoph Gottsched's courtship of Luise Kulmus to provide a new perspective on their private and professional relationship.
