Dein Ist Das Reich

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