Christiane  Tramitz - The Sisters of Marzahn


A man who has nothing to give –

two little girls who need everything –

a unique friendship

One day on the stairs of his concrete tower block, Fabian Krüger, jobless, walked out on by his wife and lonely, comes across two very thin little girls who have locked themselves out. Although he has enough worries of his own he gives the sisters more and more of his attention, buys food for them from the little money he has, helps them with their homework. He looks after the two children for almost a year – until they suddenly disappear. With the help of other people in the block Krüger realises something dreadful. His life takes an abrupt turn, and one of the reasons is the two nuns who since 1992 have been offering the Marzahners help in their "Life Counselling Centre". Their mission: wounds heal.

Bestselling author Christiane Tramitz tells a story that is as poignant as it is appalling, and it is a story that stands for the lives of many people in Germany. And yet it is a story of hope, love and optimism showing how people care for each other even in the direst of circumstances – and that then wounds really can be healed.

"A story to feel along […] In every chapter, the book surprises with new turnings, which makes it exciting to the last page."
