New PDF release: Der Himmel ist ein Fluss (German Edition)

By Anna Kaleri

"Meine masurische Großmutter konnte ich nicht kennen, weil sie im Januar 1945 erschossen wurde. Ich habe nie ein Foto gesehen, lange wusste ich nicht einmal ihen Vornamen. Es gibt keinen Kirchenbucheintrag, keinen Grabstein. Es ist, als hätte es sie nicht gegeben."

Minna ist eine junge masurische Landarbeiterin, die den anderen hochmütig erscheint, weil sie davon träumt, der Enge des Dorflebens zu entkommen. Eines Tages, noch vor dem Krieg, lernt sie auf einem ihrer Streifzüge durch die Wälder den Vogelkundler Gwidon kennen. Er ist polnisch, katholisch und verheiratet. Trotzdem üben die beiden aufeinander eine immer stärker werdende Faszination aus. Um dauerhaft in seiner Nähe zu sein, zieht Minna schließlich nach Allenstein, wo Gwidon lebt, und nimmt eine Stelle als Kindermädchen an. Wieder beginnen die beiden, sich heimlich zu treffen: in verlassenen Gärten am wilden Ufer der Alle. Sie begeben sich dabei in große Gefahr, denn die Liebe zwischen einer Deutschen und einem Polen ist zu diesen Zeiten unmöglich... Anna Kaleri erzählt eine Liebesgeschichte, wie sie sich zugetragen haben könnte. Sie beleuchtet damit ein dunkles Kapitel deutscher Geschichte und erschafft zugleich eine berührende Romanfigur.
