  • Elisabeth Augustin (June 13, 1903 – December 14, 2001) was a German-Dutch writer. The daughter of Eduard Joseph Glaser, a Roman Catholic, and Ella Cohn, a Jew, she was born Elisabeth Theresia Glaser in Friedenau, a suburb of Berlin, and grew up in Leipzig and Berlin.

Later that year, she left for the Netherlands. Her husband, Paul Felix Augustin, had grown up there and she already spoke Dutch. Her own Dutch translation of her first novel was published as De uitgestootene in 1935. She had published three more novels in Dutch by 1938. In 1938, her parents left Germany to join her in the Netherlands. However, after her father died in 1942, her mother was deported to the Sobibór extermination camp where she died in the gas chambers. Her later writing is strongly influenced by Judaism and The Holocaust, even though Augustin herself did not follow Jewish customs or the Jewish religion. She published the novel Labyrint (Dutch) in 1955. A German version Auswege appeared in 1988; it was to be her last novel, although she continued to produce poetry, short stories and radio plays. In 1992, she was awarded the Jacobson award for her work. She died in Amsterdam in 2001. (en)
