I read it with a great interest, hence I come from the region Janesch is writing about, and my family as hers came from Ucraine to Poland during the WWII. It is a piece of a great writing, a fresh perspective of someone coming from "inbetween" of the cultures, from Germany and from Poland. It makes a lot to the book that it's probably touching her own family. She is a great young writer, who can master a story without putting there too much.

Ein gut zu lesender, interessanter Roman, der die Deutsch-Polnisch-Ukrainische (Nach)Kriegsgeschichte thematisiert. Die Kapitel wechseln zwischen der Gegenwart (deutsch-polnische Ich-Erzählerin erforscht die Vergangenheit Ihres Großvaters) und der Zeit des Kriegsendes.
Die in Deutschland häufig wenig bekannte Vertreibung von Polen aus Galizien ins heutige Polen wird dem Leser nahe gebracht. Die Autorin erzählt die Vorgänge flüssig, stellenweise hätte ich mir aber ein bisschen mehr Tiefgang gewün

I haven't been reading much in German lately, and this book was such a lovely find! It's two stories woven into one - Nele, who goes in search for the village in Ukraine that her maternal Grandfather fled during the pogroms and the truths that are hidden there, and Stanislaw's journey from that same village to the village in Schlesien in the 40s. Nele's conflicts are mostly internal, whereas Stanislaw's conflicts are external and violent. It's a book about family secrets, truth and discovery, an ...more
