Senior Fellow Armin Wühle has written the novel “Getriebene,” which will be published February 20, 2021 by Marix Verlag. The novel depicts the city of Thikro which is widely destroyed during a siege, and which evolves into a tourist attraction after the end of the war. The story centers around Vincent, a reporter who travels to Thikro to write about war tourism, Cora, a development worker, and Milo, an interpreter who lived through the war. The novel tells of past horrors, hopes for the future, contradictions, and the price of our ideals.
“Getriebene” was deeply influenced by his Humanity in Action Sarajevo Fellowship in 2016 and by further journalistic investigation he undertook in Lebanon 2017.
