From the Editor

World War II scattered families across the globe, with only the luckiest remaining together in their new homes. In this poignant, timely novel, we meet the Jewish scientists who move from Germany to Istanbul to develop their vision of the world’s best universities. Based on the true story of neuropathologist professor Philipp Schwartz, Without a Country tells the story of one family’s migration, with all the challenges and triumphs of laying down roots in a new land.

Gerhard and Elsa face challenges settling in, but their daughter, Susy, was born and raised in Istanbul, this “city of surprises and unexpected beauty, a city that made one grateful to be alive.” Through the novel, we experience not only the trials of adapting to a new culture but also the delights of discovery. Watching her grow up speaking Turkish in school, surrounded by Muslim friends, we fully understand why Susy considers herself more a Turk than a Jew. But how can one family contain such multitudes, with language, religion, and nationality pulling them apart?

In today’s world of mass migration and conflicting views on immigration, it is fascinating to look back on the Jewish diaspora and to see how this family evolves. This beautiful saga offers lessons in compassion and grace in an ever-changing world.
