Abstract: »In G. W. Pabst’s silent movie “Diary of a Lost Girl” (1929) the American actress Louise Brooks is starring in the role of an innocent young girl named Thymian who, at the age of 14, is seduced by her father’s colleague and obliged to abandon her baby and to become a prostitute. It is one of the most famous productions of the silent cinema era. The film is based on Margarete Böhme’s popular novel Tagebuch einer Verlorenen which was first published in 1905. The paper draws a parallel between the novel and the silent movie pointing out the significant differences between them in their equally harsh critic of the bourgeois society and its sex morality.« (Source: Temesewarer Beiträge zur Germanistik)
