Esther Birney lecture: Gabriele Goldstone – “Crow Stone”

Gabriele Goldstone’s novel, Crow Stone, inspired by her mother’s memories as a Soviet prisoner of war, explores the chaos of the final months on the Eastern Front and the subsequent time as a forced labourer in the Ural Mountains. Her presentation will share research behind the narrative, including travel, oral history and secondary sources, along with her motivation for writing the novel and why its history still matters. 

Gabriele Goldstone
received an MA in modern German Literature at the University of Manitoba before focusing on raising three children. Always curious and an avid reader, she's now re-focused her energies on writing the stories that her immigrant parents once lived. To aid in her research, she’s climbed Hitler’s Mountain, perused secret police files in Ukraine, and cycled through Kaliningrad along the Amber Coast.  Her stories are told from the German-Russian point of view. Discussion guides for Crow Stone and her previous novels are available at:
