Hannah Arendt, Vita Activa 1960

Personal interests

Jens was born and raised in Leipzig. After living in the Ruhr area and Vienna, he now lives in Leipzig again with his family. Education and books are still his passion today; one focus of his work is social impact & education projects, and the other takes place everywhere, because there is always an hour for reading at home, on the train or in a hotel.
