Let me start with some simple, some may even say banal things – to be found on every Wikipedia site: Sebald was born on 18 May 1944 in Bavaria, he died on 14 December 2001 in Norfolk, England. His first names were Winfried Georg, a third name was given to him by his parents: Maximilian. But who wants to be called Winfried Georg Maximilian, especially when living in Great Britain?!
