Bernhard Otto Holtermann emigrated from Hamburg to Australia in 1858 as a destitute young man, where, in 1872, he unearthed the largest lump of gold in the world. Holtermann shared his newfound wealth with his adopted home. As he travelled through the settlements, he had the poverty-stricken life documented in spectacular images, and promoted Australia to the world. More than 150 of these impressive photos have now been published, most for the first time, and are thus immortalized for eternity.
 

Autorenportrait

  • Christoph Hein

    Dr. Christoph Hein lebt als Korrespondent der Frankfurter Allgemeinen Zeitung seit 20 Jahren in Asien. Ihn interessieren die Geschichten hinter den Namen, die Menschen, die die Entwicklung der asiatisch-pazifischen Region vorantreiben. Der Autor mehrerer Bücher betreut derzeit den südlichen Streifen dieser Weltgegend von Pakistan bis zu den Pazifikinseln und verbringt viel Zeit in Australien.

     

    Dr Christoph Hein has lived in Singapore, where he works as a correspondent for a newspaper, for 20 years. He loves wandering through the city with his wife Sabine, deciphering its many secrets bit by bit. This is a laborious task – but one they are dedicated to, if they don’t happen to be travelling the rest of Asia with their daughter or enjoying the cold rain of their native Germany.
