Regina  Scheer - God Lives in Berlin Wedding


A house. A century. The stories of so many lives.

They are all connected with one another and tied by fate to Wedding, that impoverished part of Berlin. The suburb with the squalid house in Utrechter Straße.

Leo, who returned to Germany after 70 years in Israel, although he never really wanted to. His granddaughter Nira, who loves Amir, who has opened a falafel snack bar in Berlin. Laila, who doesn't know that her Sinti family once lived here. And finally old Gertrud, who found Leo and his friend Manfred hiding away in 1944 but never let on.

Regina Scheer, the magnificent narrator of German history, has woven the lives of her protagonists together to make a literary epos bursting with authenticity and human warmth.

"God Lives in Wedding is a Berlin novel as multi-layered as it is bulging, linking the present and the past on many levels"

Jüdische Allgemeine
