What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
What if a secret photograph and a property stolen by the Nazis unlocked the door to your mother's buried past and to a family history you knew nothing about? Mani Feniger steered a deliberate course away from her mother's German-Jewish roots. But with the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, she found herself swept up in a flood of startling revelations from her mother's earlier life. As she pored through old photographs and documents, she began to ask questions about secrets and omissions. The answers she found both shocked and inspired her, and would irrevocably transform her view of her mother, herself, and the meaning of family legacy.
"I always knew she loved me, but I didn't need to accept everything she gave me, like her fears that people would let you down when you needed them, or the conviction that danger lurked behind every unguarded moment."
