Maja Weikert (1951-2022)
We recently received the sad news that Maja Weikert passed away on 25 January in Frankfurt.
We will remember Maja as a dedicated translator of literature from Flanders and the Netherlands into Croatian and Bosnian. She translated many books, including ‘The Twin’ and ‘The Detour’ by Gerbrand Bakker, ‘Sleep!’ by Annelies Verbeke, ‘Madame Verona Comes Down the Hill’ and ‘Problemski Hotel’ by Dimitri Verhulst, ‘We and Me’ and ‘Night Parents’ by Saskia de Coster, ‘The Melting’ by Lize Spit and ‘In Europe’ by Geert Mak with fellow translator Goran Saric.
Her tireless efforts for Dutch-language literature, her commitment and enthusiasm will be missed. We offer her husband, family and colleagues our deepest sympathy in coming to terms with this loss.
