Trauterose: Growing Up in Postwar Munich

Memoir with themes of war, escape, postwar trauma, eighteen years of foster care, grief, cultural and linguistic adjustments. My story is book-ended by critical thoughts about nationality; by reflections on today's Germany with the past intruding on the present, by inherited trauma and inherited guilt still pursuing me.
