German Classics Prize

A German Classic: An Essay Competition for Sixth Formers

We are delighted to announce the launch of the 2022 Oxford German Classic Competition. Join us this year to read Annette von Droste-Hülshoff’s captivating text Die Judenbuche published in 1842. Filled with plot twists, Doppelgänger, grisly murders, and red herrings, Die Judenbuche explores how human nature is shaped and (de)formed, confronting us with existential questions of good and evil and all the greyscales in between.
