In the '40s and '50s many men from Denmark traveled to Greenland to work. Here they met Greenlandic women-which more than once resulted in pregnancies. Many of these men then returned to Denmark, which meant that the children grew up as illegitimate children without even knowing their fathers. One of these children was Anne Sofie Hardenberg, who was teased all through her childhood for having a Danish father-and an absent one at that. By the age of 17 she gathered the courage to write to her father. To her surprise he was very glad to hear from her, and wished to make her a part of his family. Unluckily they only got three weeks together-then he died in a car accident... This book is Anne Sofie's memoir accompanied by photos and letters between her and her Danish family. Today, still, there is a problem with the legal rights of this generation of "fatherless" children.
