Nina Willner

Nina Willner is a former US Army intelligence officer who was stationed in Berlin during the Cold War. Since, she has gone on to promote human rights and education internationally, serving in the US State Department, various NGOs, and charitable organizations. Her debut memoir, Forty Autumns: A Family’s Story of Courage and Survival on Both Sides of the Berlin Wall, pieces together the moving tale of Willner’s family, divided by the Iron Curtain for more than forty years, a story that Kirkus praises for its celebration of the “enduring resilience of the human spirit.”
