Dear Friends,

In the latest episode of our Bet Debora podcast you hear Andrea Petö and Norli Lappin-Eppel in conversation with the journalist and author Anna Goldenberg about her book “I belong to Vienna”.

Anna Goldenberg, born in 1989 in Vienna, studied psychology at the University of Cambridge and journalism at Columbia University, New York. She worked for the Jewish newspaper The Forward in New York before returning to Vienna where she now writes for the weekly Der Falter and the daily Die Presse. Her book “I Belong to Vienna” was published in 2018 in English by New Vessel Press as well as in German under the title “Versteckte Jahre. Der Mann, der meinen Großvater rettete”. (Hidden years. The man who saved my Grandfather) by Paul Zsolnay Verlag. In this book Anna Goldenberg narrates her family’s fate during the Shoah and after the war. She also reflects on her role as an author and granddaughter. Just like her grandparents Anna Goldenberg spent some years in New York and then decided to return to Vienna.
