PRESSESTIMMEN


"Ihre Stärke liegt in ihrem klassischen Aussehen und ihrem reichen Innenleben, einer interessanten Mischung aus reicher Sinnlichkeit und angenehmen Selbstbewusstsein. Sie atmet und liebt die Facetten der menschlichen Existenz.  Ein Frauentyp, der ins Gestern passt, in die Romantik, aber auch in der Gegenwart, im Zeitalter der Egos, der Karrierekämpfe und Börsenverluste ihren Platz hat.”  - Helmut Sorge, DER SPIEGEL


"You’ll encounter the main antagonist, Frau Engel, who is played by the magnificent Nina Franoszek in a performance that conjures the majesty of Jessica Lange from season 4 of “American Horror Story.”  - By Tristan Greene TNW Gaming


"I've done a lot of research to understand my own past and been to Auschwitz and all that, but as an actor what really convinced me was the script. The script to me was very similar to Inglourious Basterds and I was given the opportunity to play sort of the Cristoph Waltz character as a female with a boytoy."- Nina Franoszek, The Hollywood Reporter 


The German House, a must-listen. The audio version is narrated with soothing, lightly German-accented surety by Nina Franoszek, who— embodying the young war crimes trial translator at the heart of the story—punctuates that surety with occasional bursts of energetic fervor. The result is a saga that spins vibrant immediacy into one of modern history’s more heavily loaded moments.”

Pastermagazine Published: December 2019

Actress Nina Franoszek (Mad Men) gives a deeply emotional performance, expressing all of Evaʼs pain and fear, as well as her courage. The German House is a deeply disturbing, important, and powerful novel that youʼll want to talk about with your friends.” - Apple Book Review 


Finding answers and hope through post-Holocaust fiction is a challenge, yet this gripping audiobook succeeds because of the power of the dialogue as delivered by narrator Nina Franoszek."Franoszek captures Eva's emotions with intensity and, at times, a surprisingly realistic tone of wonderment, both of which highlight the questions and anger bottled deep inside Eva. The result is a powerful performance by Franoszek that complements the novel superbly. “ -D.J.S. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2020]
