In “Seven Downs and Eight Ups” (published by AuthorHouse), Nobuko Gerth offers readers a glimpse into her life story, recalling her experiences as a Japanese woman who has lived in three countries: Japan, the United States, and Germany.
Gerth writes about her life in Japan during the 1930s and 1940s, before and during World War II. She came to the United States in 1953 to study sociology. She relates her life as a student with stories of fairy tale existence and experienced cultural differences. Later, with her husband, she moved to Germany, where she lived for 36 years.
Gerth tells about her life in Germany, recalling the events of the postwar economic miracle period through the fall of the Berlin Wall and thereafter. Ever curious, she constantly compares Japan, the United States, and Germany through her daily life, travels and work experiences. “Seven Downs and Eight Ups” deals with her life of ups and downs. With her courage, optimism and luck, she has always come up from the downs.
