The German edition of my book, "Heimat" (US title "Belonging") has arrived in the mail.
Maira Kalman writes: “Nora Krug has created a beautiful visual memoir of a horrific time in history. A time that torments us to this day. Asking questions and searching for the truth, she will not turn away from the legacy of her family and her country. She asks the question of how any of us survive our family history. Ultimately, the only course is not to veil the answers.”
The book can be pre-ordered here:

The printing and cover art for the German edition of my book, "Heimat" (US title "Belonging"), has been completed.
Chris Ware writes, “A page-turning scrapbook/collage of memory, meaning and accountability, Ms. Krug draws the reader through her family history with the directness of imagery, handwriting and, ultimately, a disquieting direness that has echoes in our American life, right now. Belonging is valuable, readable and, needless to say, highly recommended.” ... See MoreSee Less

I just received the Fall catalogue from my German publisher, Penguin, with a preview of my upcoming 300-page visual memoir on WWII and my German family history. This fall, the book will also be published by Scribner in the US under the title "Belonging", by Blans in Holland and Penguin in the UK under the title "Heimat", and by Gallimard in France (title TBD).
Author and journalist Sebastian Junger writes:
"BELONGING is an astoundingly honest book that conducts a devastating – and irresistible – investigation into one family's struggle with the forces of history. I could not stop reading it and when I was done I could not stop thinking about it. By going so deeply into her family's history, Krug has in some ways written about us all." ... See MoreSee Less
Cannot wait. Yours, and John Hendrix’s graphic novel about Bonhoeffer make me think we might get people thinking about this history in new ways. Thank you for your hard work. ❤️
