Inhalt

Long Traveling Newena

This is the story of the German boy Jan who spends his vacation on a freighter ship with his uncle Fiete, who is captain of the ship. During the voyage Jan discovers a stowaway on board: Newena, a young girl form ex-Yugoslavia. Intrigued by this mysterious girl, Jan keeps his discovery a secret.

Although the girl does not talk very much, Jan gradually finds out about her horrible fate during the war. Slowly the two children relate to each other. In order to help her, Jan becomes a stowaway himself. But before he can really help her, he needs to understand the full depth of Newena′s suffering. And he needs to learn how to act selflessly.
"Long Traveling Newena" is about the primary victims of any kind of war: the children who grow up in fear and whose childhood is stolen. It reminds us of our responsibility towards these victims of war. This story regained its relevance in face of the situation in Kosovo in 1999.
