Imperfect - Emil and BertaSophia Christine Murphy
Damaged/Imperfect - mildly out of kilter: a bent corner, a ruffled page or three, a spine with a dent, or a mark that ought not to be there. Final sale, no returns or exchanges. Quantities are limited.
It is 1919, and Europe has been devastated by the First World War. Emil Molt, the managing director of Waldorf-Astoria Cigarette Company in Germany, and his wife Berta wanted to start a school to educate the children of their employees and turned to their friend Rudolf Steiner for guidance. That would be the start of a revolutionary approach to education, now known worldwide as Waldorf education.
Sophia Christine Murphy, Emil Molt’s grand-daughter, draws on her grandfather’s diaries to trace the couple's struggles, betrayals, successes and breakthroughs in the founding and nurturing of the first Waldorf school. Murphy tells the story with grace, ease, and objectivity, bringing this remarkable chapter of educational history to life.
