From the Author

Die wahre Geschichte zweier Kinder
»Im Jahr 2002 interviewte ich meine Eltern über ihre Erlebnisse als Kriegskinder. Aus diesen Interviews wuchs über 15 Jahre der biografische Roman, der das Leben meiner Eltern von 1940 bis 1954 nachempfindet. Auch kann die Geschichte meiner Eltern stellvertretend für die Schicksale von Millionen deutschen Kindern im Dritten Reich stehen.« Annette Oppenlander

About the Author

Annette Oppenlander ist eine preisgekrönte Schriftstellerin und unterrichtet kreatives Schreiben. Als erfolgreiche Autorin von historischen Romanen ist Oppenlander für ihre authentischen Figuren und auf wahren Geschichten basierenden Romane bekannt. Gekonnt verbindet Oppenlander historische Personen und Geschehnisse mit ihren Plots und vermittelt damit Lesern Einblicke in die Geschichte, verpackt in eine spannende Erzählung. Sie verbrachte die erste Hälfte ihres Lebens in Deutschland und die nächsten 30 Jahre in verschiedenen Teilen der USA. Oppenlander inspiriert ihre Leser, indem sie Themen beleuchtet, die heute ebenso relevant sind wie in der Vergangenheit. Oppenlanders wahre Geschichte Surviving the Fatherland, die englische Version von Vaterland, wo bist du?, wurde zum Amazon Bestseller und wurde in den USA bereits sieben Mal ausgezeichnet, u.a. mit dem National Indie Excellence Award 2017, dem Indie B.R.A.G. Award 2018, dem Readers' Favorite Book Award und dem Chill with a Book Readers' Award 2017. Das Werk erhielt den Readers' Favorite Book Award und wurde mit fünf Sternen ausgezeichnet und war Finalist der Kindle Book Awards 2017. Oppenlander vermittelt ihre Kenntnisse sowohl in deutscher als auch in englischer Sprache durch Workshops, unterhaltsame Präsentationen und Autorenbesuche an Colleges, Universitäten, Büchereien und Schulen. Sie ist Mutter von Zwillingen und einem Sohn und lebt seit 2017 wieder in ihrer alten Heimat Solingen in Deutschland. "Fast jeder Ort birgt irgendein Geheimnis, etwas, das Historie lebendig macht. Wenn wir Menschen und Orte genau untersuchen, ist Historie nicht länger ein Datum oder eine Nummer, sie wird zur Erzählung oder Geschichte. Vielleicht benutzen wir deshalb das Wort Geschichte im Sinne von Historie, aber auch im Sinne von Erzählung."

Having lived in Germany the first half of her life and the second half in various parts in the U.S., Oppenlander inspires readers by illuminating story questions as relevant today as they were in the past.

Oppenlander’s bestselling true WWII story, Surviving the Fatherland, has received eight awards/nominations, including the 2017 National Indie Excellence Award, the 2018 Indie B.R.A.G. and the 2020 Skoutz Award in Germany. Uniquely, Oppenlander weaves actual historical figures and events into her plots, giving readers a flavor of true history while enjoying a good story.

The mother of fraternal twins and a son, she now lives in Germany with her husband.

“Nearly every place holds some kind of secret, something that makes history come alive. When we scrutinize people and places closely, history is no longer a date or number, it turns into a story.”
