The article analyses the theme of exile as developed in Christa Wolf ’s autobiographical work Kindheitsmuster. The exile experienced at a young age by both the author and by her main fictional character, Nelly Jordan, is complemented by other self-exiles. Through them Wolf seeks to recover her own subjectivity, while critically dissociating from the propaganda and the political line of a regime of which for too long, in the West, she was considered an uncritical supporter.
