“Mit meinen Augen”
Süddeutsche Magazin 19/2015
The 7 year old Girl Myra is the only one in her family that is able to see. Both of her parents Andreas and Nina are blind and her one and a half years old little sister Aliah is suffering on the same disease as her Mother, which makes her lose her sight slowly. Until now nobody knows how much she can see. Myra is growing up in a world which her parents and her sister can’t see: She painted pictures on the walls of her room, what her parents just found out when friends, who visited them, told them. Situations like that make her parents fear about losing control of her nurture. Myra’s nickname is the owl, because of her big eyes that always look at you. But maybe it only seems like that in comparison to the rest of her family, thats is not able to look into somebodys eyes. When Myra wants to be like Harry Potter with his invisible cloak, she is putting on her soft socks to make no noise.
