Kraft, Kathinka

Written by:  Elisabeth Aasen

Kathinka Kraft was born and grew up in the well-established bourgeoisie of Christiania. She married in 1846 and had four children.

In her memoirs, her sole work, Et og andet fra min Tid. Erindringer, written in 1885 and published in 1938, she recounts her childhood and youth in Christiania, life in the town, and the monotony of life in the country, where her husband was a Lower Court judge.
