In this book, which he wrote at the age of 82 years, the

Lebensabend und Lebensende

author Christian Hänisch tells us in prosaic and lyrical texts about his perception of old people. He touches on many different aspects of old age such as prejudices, the chances and obstacles of communication between old and young, physical and mental changes, old-age poverty, nursing homes, dementia, suicide, suffering as well as human wisdom and experience. It is fascinating to see that the diversity of life of senior citizens is as great as that of young people.
