Mini Bio (1)

Anna German was a Polish pop-singer of the German origin (her surname has nothing in common with her ethnic origin - this is a purely casual coincidence in English only; the Polish word for "German" is niemiecki (m), niemiecka (f), niemiec "a German man", niemka "a German lady", Niemcy "Germans", "Germany" etc.). She was born in the Soviet Union. Her parents as well as other Soviet Germans, were banished to Central Asia after the Nazi Germany had attacked the USSR. Her father was killed in the labor camp. During the war her mother married a Pole and moved to Poland after World War II had been over. Anna German's main profession is geologist. She became a pop singer in the early 1960s after winning a song competition at University of Wroclaw where she was studying. In August 1967 she was badly injured in the road accident (car crash) in Italy. The process of her rehabilitation lasted three years until in 1970 she started singing again. She was popular both in Poland and in the USSR. The cause of her death in the age of 46 is cancer, which is in no way bound with the road accident as many people mistakenly suppose.
