Audio recording of Germanija. How I Became an Adult and a Jew in Germany – Reading and Discussion with Dmitrij Belkin (in German); 19 October 2017.
Jewish Museum Berlin 2017

As an immigrant, he enters a country that is undergoing radical changes – his post-Soviet outlook meets the old and new Federal Republic, where Jewish self-discovery becomes possible for him and his family. Germanija is a German chronicle wrapped in a deeply personal narrative that also throws light on immigration today.

Alina Gromova, Jewish Museum Berlin, will lead the ensuing discussion with the author.

The event is part of the New German Stories series.
