Description
History is written by victors. But what about the civilians in any country who suffer when men go into battle? Like in Germany. Displaced Germans suffered by the millions and were killed when they were chased off the land of their forefathers. Who talks about them and writes their stories? Today their ancestors live in North and South America while their parents rest in unmarked graves along road from east to west.

Summary
Undressing Shadows is the story about two women during postwar Germany. A war lost, a country divided while shadows of the past linger over cities in rubble. Hunger is paired with self-pity. When an additional twelve million Germans from Pomerania and East Prussia arrive in the Rhineland and Bavaria, among them the Marlow Family, the burden gets unbearable. Displaced Germans are cursed and despised by their own nation in the est. In addition, secrets of the past lead to speechlessness within families until today. Nearly fifty years later Christina Eicken goes on a quest with Lotte Marlow to undress those shadows. They stumble upon revealing facts hidden for years.

Excerpt
Tired of Waking I long for the night Undressing Shadows Folding their gowns. With tiny steps she tip-toes along the edge of that dark hem, retracing fading stiches of a gown worn out over time. Careful, not to stumble on that garment her shadows have woven those past fifty years. Unable to shed the past, unwilling to forget she moves along. Still waiting, after all those years.
