An Emotional History of two German Jewish Refugees
Berlin to London is a moving account of the emotional journeys of two German Jewish refugees. After discovering a substantial collection of family papers in her childhood home, Esther Saraga spent many years researching and reconstructing the story of her parents, Lotte and Wolja, through their letters and archives. The letters reveal how it felt to be a refugee in the mid-20th century, and articulately
express the distress and loss involved in exile, separation and internment. They shed fresh light on life in Nazi Germany, the difficulties of getting out and into the UK, and British attitudes and policies towards refugees. Esther explores the longer-term effects of being a refugee, as well as her own emotional response to the letters. She reflects candidly on how her parents' experiences have shaped her identity, and on their relevance to the experiences of migrants and refugees today. This engaging, memorable and accessible book has won critical acclaim, and is now being released as an audiobook for the first time, narrated by Esther herself. The material is beautifully recorded with fascinating detail. It is read with honesty and power.
