Dein Ist Das Reich

In her family saga, the author touches on German colonial history. Before World War I, her grandparents had left Bavaria for New Guinea as Christian missionaries with a sense of duty in order to convert the »heathens« and thus experience self­-valorization in a hierarchically constructed world. »Historically enlightening and emotionally moving, multi­layered and vivid, Katharina Döbler tells of colonialism in its concrete form.« [Berliner Zeitung]
