Lebensraum

A political fantasy on what would happen if the German Chancellor invited six million Jews from all over the world to Germany and offered them houses and jobs. With great feeling for human nature, the author tells the stories of many people and whole families in which both love and hatred play an important role. He takes the side of neither the Jews not the Germans, and does not write only about them, he also turns to the new generation of humankind. He does not draw attention to historical guilt, but to the need for historical memory, in which there is hope that a lesson can be learned.
