Dagmar Honigmann is in her sixties and has worked as a writer and educator. She is the daughter of German refugees who made separate middle-of-the-night escapes from East Germany after World War II, in her mother’s case with help from an American Army officer who risked not only his career but an international incident by doing so. When her mother developed Alzheimers and began living more and more in the past, Dagmar was repeatedly reminded of the fact that democracies can fail – and of what can happen when they do (such as when her mother recalled having been on a train that was just leaving Dresden at the start of the Allied firebombing that burned many of city’s residents to death).
She has turned to writing because news is now coming too quickly for people to note some of its important implications. Thus, in her columns, she specializes in politically related news that has almost escaped notice or been forgotten too quickly, and in unasked questions, especially disturbing ones. (If she had to give the articles she is writing a working title, it would be “Disturbing the Peace”.)
She writes as a public service, so she strongly encourages readers to share her work in whatever way they see fit.

The Last of Three Climate Change Perils No One Is Talking About Yet a third hidden peril that our country faces if climate change continues is again partly political, because it stems from the second peril - but the disaster would be mainly economic.

Why Not Think Way Outside the Box on Refugees? The second in a series of occasional articles involving our refugee crises (plural).

"Is America Still a Christian Country?" The first in a series of occasional articles involving our refugee crises (plural).
