The New York City launching of Armando Correa‘s Spanish edition of The German Girl, hailed by writer Adriana Trigiani as “an unforgettable and resplendent novel which will take its place among the great historical fiction written about World War II…and will change the way you look at the world.”
Before everything changed, young Hannah Rosenthal lived a charmed life. But now, in 1939, the streets of Berlin are draped with red, white, and black flags; her family’s fine possessions are hauled away; and they are no longer welcome in the places that once felt like home.
La niña alemana sweeps from Berlin at the brink of the Second World War, through the ill-fated voyage of S.S. St. Louis, the transatlantic liner offering Jews safe passage out of Germany, to Cuba on the cusp of revolution, to New York in the wake of September 11, before reaching its deeply moving conclusion in the tumult of present-day Havana. Based on a true story, this masterful novel gives voice to the joys and sorrows of generations of exiles, forever seeking a place called home.
The author will be introduced by Columbia University professor Perla Rozencvaig.
The presentation will be held in Spanish. The book will be available for sale in both English and Spanish.
