Zoltán Böszörményi: "Whenever I close my eyes". An intensive novel about the children of migrant workers.
Book presentation with the author Zoltán Böszörményi and the translator Hans-Henning Paetzke.
It is a shocking phenomenon in Central and Eastern Europe that the children of migrant workers moving to Western Europe are being left behind in their homes. They grow up with their grandparents or with relatives. They often do not see their parents for years. Zoltán Böszörményi wrote the story of a little girl: her longings, desires and dreams. The result is a desperate warning that breaking the emotional bond between parent and child will destroy not only souls, but society as a whole.
