Nora Krug presents "Belonging: A German Reckons with History and Home."

Nora Krug was born decades after the fall of the Nazi regime, but the Second World War cast a long shadow throughout her childhood and youth in the city of Karlsruhe, Germany. Her graphic memoir, "Belonging: A German Reckons with History and Home," spanning continents and generations, pieces together her family’s troubling story and reflects on what it means to be a German of her generation.

Krug is an author and artist whose drawings and visual narratives have appeared in periodicals including the New York Timesthe Los Angeles Times, The Guardian and Le Monde Diplomatique, and in anthologies published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Simon and Schuster and Chronicle Books. She is als an associate professor at the Parsons School of Design in New York City.
