Auf der Straße heißen wir anders

The children from the high-rise housing estate in Bremen-Nord know exactly where their families come from: Turkey, Russia, Albania. Only with Karla is everything a little different. She knows that her grandmother came to Germany from Istanbul as a guest worker in the 1960s, and that the family has Armenian roots, but they don't talk about it. When Karla's grandmother dies, the name of a woman appears, along with an address in Armenia. Karla manages to persuade her father to go on a trip together - to a homeland that neither of them has ever set foot in.
Laura Cwiertnia reads from her moving debut novel "Auf der Straße heißen wir anders" (Klett-Cotta), which impressively tells how it feels to be on the fringes of a society. The story of an Armenian family whose experiences are so profound that they still have an impact generations later.
