From Berlin to Back Mountain: The Lilac Tree transplanted
Marlinton, WV – Nicollette Maleckar has always loved to write, and she doesn’t like sad stories.
As one of the last children carried out of Nazi Germany before the Holocaust, Maleckar returned to Berlin years later to find sadness everywhere.
In her novel The Lilac Tree, she writes about that time. But the story is really a portrait of all the people she knew then.
