Belonging by Nora Krug

Since we all enjoyed reading Irmina so much… here is a fabulous new graphic novel which treads similar territory.

A wholly original record of a German woman’s struggle with the weight of catastrophic history, Belonging is also a reflection on the responsibility that we all have as inheritors of our countries’ pasts.

And while we’re on the subject of graphic novels… we’re reading another graphic novel for our final book of the year at the school book club.  Here is our pick list of titles we’re choosing from, if you’re intersted.
