“A Star That Peers Through Your Window”


German children’s book author Thomas Mac Pfeifer spent over a year interviewing children who had migrated to Germany from war-stricken countries such as Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan with the purpose of hearing and collecting their favorite bedtime stories into one book, Ein Stern, der in dein Fenster schaut (“A star that peers through your window”). Sertan Sanderson, for DW, talks with Mac Pfeifer about the interviewing experience and the process of creating the multilingual book.
