"Belonging: A German Reckons with History and Home" by Nora Krug, published by Scribner, an imprint of Simon and Schuster, has won the 2019 Lynd Ward Prize for Graphic Novel of the Year. In her visual memoir, Krug “draws on letters, archival material, flea market finds, and photographs to attempt to understand what it means to belong. A wholly original record of a German woman’s struggle with the weight of catastrophic history, 'Belonging' is also a reflection on the responsibility that we all have as inheritors of our countries’ pasts,” according to Krug’s website.
