BELONGING A German Reckons with History and Home

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Nora Krug

Biography & Memoir • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Nora Krug's narration adds to her graphic memoir in which she recounts her journey to understand the German concept of HEIMAT--"a place that a person is born into that makes for identity." She asks, "How do you know who you are, when you don't understand where you come from?" Krug courageously embarks on piecing together her German heritage--exploring historical records, interviewing family members and others to discover her family's involvement with the Nazis. Her German accent certainly increases the authenticity of her narration. Her neutral tone could either be intentional or her newness to narration. Whatever the reason, it serves as a counterpoint to the emotions that emerge. Krug's curiosity, frustration, and self-discovery involve listeners in her poignant quest. S.W.
