Nadja Strasser, born in Russia as Noema Ramm, 1871- 1955 was a German-Russian feminist, writer and translator. There are many known gaps in her life. It isn’t clear when and why Noema Ramm took the name Nadja Strasser, whether is is a pseudonym or a married name.

At some point she left Russia and became active in socialist organsiations in Warsaw. Her younger sisters Alexandra and Mary were in Berlin in 1908. The three sisters before the start of World War I were working in Franz Pfemfert’s magazine The Action again. Alexandra was the wife of Pfemfer.

Strasser published iIn 1917, before the October Revolution, 'Die Russin', a tribute to Russian women. After a short return to her family, she began studying at Vienna University. She spent some years living in Vienna and Berlin, and then went with the architect Alexander Levy to Palestine in 1920. Lack of funds caused them both to return to Berlin in 1927. They went into exile in Paris in 1933. Levy was taken to Auschwitz in August 1942, but Nadja survived in France. She died in Berlin in 1955.

in 1919 her brilliant German translation of Petersburg by Andrie Bely was published in Munich.
