Book launch Stella by Takis Würger
Takis Würger is launching his new book at our hotel
It’s the year 1942. Friedrich, a calm young man travels from the Lake Geneva to Berlin. He meets Kristin at an art school. She takes Friedrich to secret jazz clubs. She drinks cognac with him and gives him his very first kiss. Whenever he’s with her, he feels as if the war was far off. One morning, Kristin knocks on his door, injured, with stripes on her face: “I didn’t tell you the truth.”. Her name is Stella and she is Jewish. The Gestapo exposed her and forces her to a deal: Will she, to safe her family, denounce Jews? A story that’s based on a true story – about the decision to either betray yourself or your love.
