Belonging: Nora Krug Spotlight
Nora Krug is interviewed by Michelle Kay from the Goethe Institute about her book Belonging. Nora started by reading from the book, speaking about German culture, the cover the book, the amount of research it took, how to talk about WWII from the German POV today, the personal difficulty in doing the book, the personal responsibility regarding this subject, her family’s reaction, the simplified narrative of WWII in pop culture, the reaction from Germans, the suffering of German and the difficulty in expressing it, the difficulty in expressing German patriotism in terms of waving the flag and singing the national anthem and the far right neo-nazi’s of today.
