Tuvia Tenenbom (2011): I Sleep in Hitler’s Room: An American Jew Visits Germany

On the face of it, this book is a travelogue, a journal by a Jew from New York traveling in today’s Germany. But this is just part of the story, a little part of it. I Sleep in Hitler’s Room is also a book about modern anti-Semitism, about hate that refuses to disappear, about a disease that won’t get cured, and a curse that won’t let go. All told in the clearest of style and most amazing of humor. But this is not fiction.

The target group, as in the last round, is the same: the »Jews«.

Christiane F.’s rapid descent into heroin abuse and prostitution is shocking, but the boredom, the longing for acceptance, the thrilling risks, and even the musical obsessions that fill out the rest of Christiane’s existence will be familiar to every reader. Christiane F.’s Berlin is a strange and often terrifying place, but it’s also a place that remains closer than we might think.

Bernhard Schlink (1997): The Reader

When he falls ill on his way home from school, fifteen-year-old Michael Berg is rescued by Hanna, a woman twice his age. In time, she becomes his lover—then she inexplicably disappears.

Cheated, humiliated, thrown from a moving car; embroiled in an underworld, Franz picks himself up over and over again – until one day, he is struck a monstrous blow which might just prove his final downfall. A dazzling collage of newspaper reports, Biblical stories, drinking songs and urban slang, Berlin Alexanderplatz is the great novel of Berlin life: inventing, styling, and recreating the city as reality and dream; mimicking its movements and rhythms; immortalizing its pubs, abattoirs, apartments and chaotic streets. From the gutter to the stars, this is the whole picture of the city.

Marion Kraft (2015): Children of Liberation

The collection explores causes and consequences of racism in the past and in the present as well as developing strategies for achieving positive change.

Fatma Aydemir and Hengameh Yaghoobifarah (2021): Your Homeland Is Our Nightmare

What does it mean to be asked to justify or defend your alleged ‘homeland’ or your family’s religious affiliation after every perceived crisis? After the NSU scandal, how much trust can we still place in the security apparatus of the German state? How does racism impact gender and sexuality? In fourteen personal essays, contemporary authors provide insight into their daily lives, extending a mirror to German society to reflect its lived realities: a country that markets itself as a model for progressive democracy while simultaneously designating a segment of its population as Other—perpetually failing to protect or value their lives.

Connected by an unknown but sentient spirit, and a bracelet of fertility beads that each Ada encounters at a pivotal moment in her life, these women share a name and a purpose.

In the process, each of these six characters brings their own perspective to the story of a migrant family in three generations.

Max Czollek (2023): De-Integrate!: A Jewish Survival Guide for the 21st Century

Rooted in sociological theory, this book offers an engaging and approachable critique of Germany’s much-lauded traditions of memory culture and Vergangenheitsbewältigung—its “successful” negotiation of its Nazi past. Although modern reunified Germany presents itself as having overcome historical trauma and integrated its now diverse, multicultural society, Czollek argues that this public image is merely a “Theater of Integration”: showcasing those minoritized stories to bolster Germany’s positive self-image while sidelining the true potential of the country’s radical diversity. Czollek posits that today’s German minorities must embrace their differences and “de-integrate” from mainstream society in order to counter the rise of rightwing nationalism.

Mithu Sanyal (2022): Identitti

But her life and sense of self are turned upside down when it emerges that Saraswati is actually white. Nivedita’s praise of her professor during a radio interview just hours before the news breaks—and before she learns the truth—calls into question her own reputation as a young activist. Following the uproar, Nivedita is forced to reflect on the key moments in her life, when she doubted her identity and her place in the world. As debates on the scandal rage on social media, blogs, and among her closest friends, Nivedita’s assumptions are called into question as she reconsiders the lessons she learned from her adored professor.

Kübra Gümüsay (2022): Speaking and Being

In this book, Kübra Gümüsay, a writer and activist fighting for equality, explores how language shapes our thinking and determines our politics. She shows how people become invisible as individuals when they are always seen as part of a group and the way those in the minority often have to expend energy cleaning up the messy thinking of others. But she also points to how we might shape conversations to allow for greater ambiguity and individuality, how arguments might happen in a space of learning and vulnerability without sacrificing principles – how we might all be able to speak freely.
