Aber used to be tun, wenn diese verhasste Ewiggestrige einem am Totenbett ihre Villa vermacht, ein prächtiges Haus mit großem Garten, perfect für eine junge Familie - mit dem einzigen Haken, dass es sich dabei um "arisierten" Besitz handelt? In der Theorie ist es ja leicht, das Richtige zu tun und die korrekten Einstellungen zu vertreten - aber wenn die Wirklichkeit ihre Fallstricke auslegt, sehen die Dinge schon ganz anders aus ... Bettina Balàka erzählt von kleinen Helden und großen Feiglingen, von scheinbarer Freiheit und vermeintlichen Fesseln - und von der absurden Logik der Geschichte.
