The One Who Knows My Name

Author: Vanessa Curtis

What if everything you thought you knew about your life turned out to be a lie? What if you idolised your parents, but they turned out to not be who you thought they were? What would you do? Would you stay? Would you run? Would you try to find out the truth?  Fifteen-year-old Inge Krause lives a happy, privileged life with her parents in the beautiful German city of Munich. That is – until a total stranger comes knocking on the door and Inge must make the most heartbreaking decision of her life.

Exploring the secretive and disturbing legacy of the Nazi’s Lebensborn programme, under which Polish children were stolen from their families to be brought up in the Aryan ideal,  it’s an emotive, powerful story with a strong element of mystery that makes it a compelling read.
