I was born in Westphalia, as the first of three sisters.
After an education in Münster, I specialized in French History.
During semester breaks I worked temporarily at Geneva at the international center CERN.
There, I met my later husband Hagen Kleinert who was a professor of physics in Berlin. In 1970 we moved in together, and I started my Ph.D. studies at the Free University Berlin. For several years I was involved in research projects financed by the German Science Foundation (DFG). We married in 1974, and I got my doctor-degree in 1976. In between we spent several times half a sabbatical year at American universities, such as Pasadena, Berkeley, Santa Barbara, San Diego, and Miami.
In 1989 I had my son Michael Kleinert. Since then I work as an independent author in the field of cultural history.
The results of my work were presented in books, journals, and lectures.
My most important research dealt with the history of the French feminine press. In that field I published many articles, and two pioneering books. In one of them I discovered that Honoré de Balzac anonymously worked for the Journal des Dames et des Modes before he started his career as a writer of novels. This was unknown before.
A popular book I wrote was the biography on Eva Evdokimova, prima ballerina, especially dancing in the 1970s and 1980s all over the world, often with Rudolf Nureyev.
For the 40th anniversary of the Free University Berlin, I was commissioned to write a documentary on the post-revolutionary years 1969 to 1973.
Another popular book I wrote was the one on the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, starting with the period of its most famous conductor Herbert von Karajan. It was published in German, and translated to English and Japanese.

The Berlin Philharmonic is a synonym for excellent musical enjoyment. During the last fifty years it has gone from success to success with its illustrious conductors Herbert von Karajan, Claudio Abbado, and Sir Simon Rattle. Dr. Annemarie Kleinert relates the history of this period. Knowledgeable and entertainingly, she presents the development and the internal organization of the orchestra, its collaboration with renowned guest conductors, soloists, and composers, as well as its many voyages. This is a factual yet also engaging book that includes personal observations of musicians and conductors along with numerous photographs mostly taken by one of the members of this musical ensemble.
Revised and translated from the German book into English by Annemarie Kleinert and Allan Mitchell.

The book describes the history of one of the first feminine journals in France. The magazine lastet 42 years, and was widely spread. A critic compared its influence to the one of Napoleon because the periodical's conquests were valued higher than the one of the emperor, lasting longer than his reign. The journal's copperplate engravings were copied everywhere in the civilized world. They originated from talented designers (i.e. Horace Vernet and Paul Gavarni). It is very probable that one of his journalists was the early Honoré de Balzac, a discovery which gives new insights into the Balzac-research.
Compiled and documented by Annemarie Kleinert, Peter Jahn and Jochen Staadt.
Eva Evdokimova is doubtless one of the greatest ballerinas of the 20th century. The book describes the dancer's life, assesses her art, and supplies numerous illustrations of key moments in her career. It studies training at ballet schools in Munich and London, her apprenticeship in the corps de ballet in Copenhagen, her rise from soloist to prima ballerina at the Berlin opera, her maturation with the London Festival Ballet, and finally her stardom in many guest performances all over the world. Special attention is payed to her winning competitions in Moscow and Varna, and her being with the Kirov Ballet in Leningrad. It also analyses her interpretations of Giselle and Swan Lake. Interviews with some of her fellow dancers, such as Peter Breuer, who shared the stage with her in Coppelia and Romeo and Juliet, provide further insight into her art.
German original of the above book entitled "Portrait of an Artist: Eva Evdokimova".
This book is a pioneering study of the important sector of the French press, the fashion magazines. It describes how this sector evolved, and the first fifty years of its existence. Exemplarily magazines are investigated as far as their content and style is concerned. One of the key aspects is the connection between politics and these magazines, and also the importance of french famous writers, painters, and engravers for these journals. The book sketches the development of these periodicals from an elitist to a popular press.
With a bibliography of the journals until 1926.
