The German bestseller - a powerful and deeply affecting graphic memoir that explores identity, guilt and the meaning of home *WINNER of the The National Book Critics Circle Award for Autobiography* One of the Guardian's '50 Biggest Books of Autumn 2018' The New York Times Critics' Top Books of 2018 Nora Krug grew up as a second-generation German after the end of the Second World War, struggling with a profound ambivalence towards her country's recent past. Travelling as a teenager, her accent alone evoked raw emotions in the people she met, an anger she understood, and shared. Seventeen years after leaving Germany for the US, Nora Krug decided she couldn't know who she was without confronting where she'd come from. In Heimat, she documents her journey investigating the lives of her family members under the Nazi regime, visually charting her way back to a country still tainted by war. Beautifully illustrated and lyrically told, Heimat is a powerful meditation on the search for cultural identity, and the meaning of history and home.

The Heimat film genre, assumed to be outdated by so many, is very much alive. Who would have thought that this genre - which has been almost unanimously denounced within academic circles, but which seems to resonate so deeply with the general public - would experience a renaissance in the 21st century? The genre's recent resurgence is perhaps due less to an obsession with generic storylines and stereotyped figures than to a basic human need for grounding that has resulted in a passionate debate about issues of past and present. This book traces the history of the Heimat film genre from the early mountain films to Fatih Akin's contemporary interpretations of Heimat.

Heimat ist ein komplexes Wort. Für die einen unbeschreiblich, für andere vollkommen identifizierbar. Mein Bewusstsein des Heimatbegriffs hat sich im Laufe der Jahre stark entwickelt, verändert und vertieft. Es stellt nicht nur schlicht und einfach ein Land oder einen Ort dar, auf dem man geboren und aufgewachsen ist. Für mich umfasst Heimat unerklärliche Gefühle, unvergessliche Erinnerungen und eine prägende Identitätssuche. Diese persönlichen Begriffe sind unter anderem Hauptrollen der Geschichte, die ich euch erzählen möchte. Das ist die Geschichte meiner Eltern, unserer kleinen und bescheidenen Familie! Das sind wir! Das ist Heimat!

"This elegant and original study adds greatly to our understanding of national and regional identities in modern German history and the ways that these were constructed. It is imaginatively researched, intelligently argued, and written with panache. A Nation of Provincials is a major historical work that has much to contribute to larger contemporary debates about a 'usable' German past."--David Blackbourn, University of London "This impeccably and thoroughly researched study is an excellent example of historical scholarship. Applegate has quite imaginatively used a wide variety of primary and secondary sources. This is a pioneering work that will stand alone in its field for some time."--Gary D. Stark, University of Texas, Arlington

Germans have been one of the most mobile and dispersed populations on earth. Communities of German speakers, scattered around the globe, have long believed they could recreate their Heimat (homeland) wherever they moved, and that their enclaves could remain truly German. Furthermore, the history of Germany is inextricably tied to Germans outside the homeland who formed new communities that often retained their Germanness. Emigrants, including political, economic, and religious exiles such as Jewish Germans, fostered a nostalgia for home, which, along with longstanding mutual ties of family, trade, and culture, bound them to Germany. The Heimat Abroad is the first book to examine the problem of Germany's long and complex relationship to ethnic Germans outside its national borders. Beyond defining who is German and what makes them so, the book reconceives German identity and history in global terms and challenges the nation state and its borders as the sole basis of German nationalism. Krista O'Donnell is Associate Professor of History, William Paterson University. Nancy Reagin is Professor of History, Pace University. Renete Bridenthal is Emerita Professor of History, Brooklyn College of the City University of New York.
