Ulla  Hahn - They Are Expecting Us
 
 
 
 

 

The story of a young, gullible woman in the tumultuous years after 1968

Hilla Palm has the world at her feet. After a long search, the girl of humble origins has at last found where she belongs: to the world of literature and with Hugo, the man who accepts Hilla as she is, with all her bitter experiences. They discover love together and witness the 1968 upheavals, when everything seemed possible.

But then fate puts a spoke in the wheel of her plans, and in desperation Hilla looks for support with people fighting for a more peaceful and fairer world. The philosophy of Marxism becomes her new spiritual home. She resolutely follows her convictions and in the end has to painfully realise that freedom without freedom of words is not possible.

They Are Expecting Us tells the compelling story of a young searching woman in the tumultuous years between 1968 and the German Autumn of 1977. This is a thought-provoking book about having the courage to change society and one's own life – a book about the power of reconciliation.
