A necessary, sharp, and sarcastic novel treating the subject matter of the Holocaust.
Nina, a 20-year-old journalism student has to clear out her grandfather´s library. Between the pages of a book on Nazi propaganda, she finds eight letters addressed to him that will tell Nina of an unknown past. Her grandfather escaped from Nazism, but never wanted to talk too much about that… That silence hides a painful story about love, runaways and the fate of a borrowed name that changed fate.
