Holocaust survivors and their children battle dreams, memory and elusive truths in this debut
In “The House on Kronenstrasse,” Christiane returns to Germany after her elderly mother dies,
traveling from New York, where she was raised, to Heidelberg, the town where she was born to a
Nazi soldier who died early in the war, and a German housekeeper, who worked for a family of
wealthy Jews. She makes the trip to her mother’s deathbed, urging that she go back to the home
where they lived as a family, at 58 Kronenstrasse. When Christiane arrives there, however, she
finds that her own childhood memories seem to be those of another girl’s life. Still, these
characters’ observations and revelations ring true.
