Spectator Books: reconciling guilt and patriotism in post-war Germany

Nov 13, 2018, 05:52 PM

Sam talks to Nora Krug about her remarkable graphic work Heimat - in which this German born writer and artist discusses how it has felt to grow up in Germany and later the US with the shadow of her homeland’s war guilt, how that has issued in art, literature and humour, and about her risky attempt to discover her own family’s wartime past.

Presented by Sam Leith.
