Graphic artist Nora Krug describes how she was compelled to look into the lives of her German family under the Nazi regime and to explore issues of post-war identity and guilt in her homeland.

Krug left Germany for the US 17 years ago but says she could not know who she was without confronting where she came from. Her German citizenship bound her to the Holocaust and its atrocities and left her without a sense of belonging. In her graphic memoir Heimat, she investigates the lives of her family members, searches for a cultural identity and muses on the meaning of history and home.

Krug is associate professor at the Parsons School of Design in New York. She creates what she calls ‘visual narratives’ and is winner of three gold medals from the Society of Illustrators. Heimat won The National Book Critics Circle Award for Autobiography.

Presented by Bodleian Librarires.
