The Second World War is long over but its legacy continues to tear a town - and a young boy's life - apart. Knud is growing up in Falster, a small Danish town in the 1960s. The war is over but the Germans are still hated and Knud has a German mother. Bullied and persecuted at school, he retreats into the eccentric world of his family's history - but he can't escape the fact that, for him, his parents, and his paternal grandparents, the war is still being fought. Depicting a town and a family devastated by prejudice, Nothing But Fear is written with empathy and venom in equal measure.
