Description

“An excellent and intriguing account of the impact of the Cold War on families and their lives

on either side of the Berlin Wall.― (Library Journal (starred review))“Willnerâ€s epic

memoir traverses three generations of mothers, recounting the tragedy, estrangement, and

overwhelming courage of a family torn apart…. Her interrogative and unabashed voice explores

the painful intersection of national duty and familial responsibilities…. A thrilling and relevant read

for historians and casual readers alike.― (Publishers Weekly)Thoughtful and informative,

Willnerâ€s book not only offers a personal view of the traumatic effects of German partition. It

also celebrates the enduring resilience of the human spirit. A poignant and engrossing,

occasionally harrowing, family memoir.― (Kirkus Reviews)[A] moving account of one familyâ€s

life under tyranny… Willnerâ€s sensitive and well-written account causes us to reflect on what

is really important to us and how we would react in a similar situation.― (BookPage)“This

book is kind, honest, incredibly well-written, and important, a testament to humanity and

courage.― (LitHub)“[A] meticulous and compassionate family memoir… Charting the twists

and turns of politics in communist East Germany over more than four decades, it shows how

currents of repression and reform affected individual lives.― (Chicago Tribune)“Forty Autumns

is both an informative and timely read. In this increasingly tumultuous modern era when borders,

both theoretical and physical, have once again become the front lines of critical issues such as

immigration reform, pervasive prejudice and terrorism, stories like Willnerâ€s are especially

important.― (BookReporter)“Even if you well know the story of the East German sequester,

you will be drawn to [Willnerâ€s] family story of living through the worst of times.― (Manhattan

Book Review)“A poignant parable of hope and, at times, a harrowing ghost story.― (Christian

Science Monitor) Growing up in a provincial village outside of Berlin, Hanna was encouraged by

her schoolteacher father to follow her dreams. But at the end of World War II, the Soviets took

control of the eastern part of Germany and established a repressive communist state—East

Germany—which used brutal force and a massive wall to cut off East from West.Determined to

live free, Hanna made a dangerous escape to West Germany. But the price of freedom—leaving

behind her parents, her eight siblings, and her home—was heartbreaking. Uprooted, Hanna

eventually moved to America, where she settled down with her husband, a U.S. Army officer, and

had children of her own, but she never forgot her parents and siblings trapped on the other side of

the Berlin Wall.Growing up near Washington, D.C., Hannaâ€s daughter, Nina Willner, became

the first female U.S. Army intelligence officer to lead sensitive intelligence collection operations in


East Berlin at the height of the Cold War. Though separated by only a few miles, American
