Nina Willner - Forty Autumns: A Family's Story of Courage and Survival on Both Sides of the Berlin Wall

Upcoming Event

More than a metaphor, the Iron Curtain that divided Europe for four decades tore apart communities and families, including Willner’s. Willner’s mother escaped from East Germany and established a new life in the U.S., a freedom she paid for by losing contact with the relatives she left behind. Willner herself, working as a U.S. Army intelligence officer in Berlin during the Cold War, was only miles from her grandmother, aunt, and cousin, but the political distance was unbridgeable. Revisiting that time in her haunting memoir, Willner tells the stories of three generations of indomitable women and through their experiences paints a chilling picture of life in a totalitarian regime.
