What if the person you trusted the most ended up in prison? It is hard to imagine that a close relative would commit a serious crime. In Family Stranger, Wiosna van Bon (NL) shows the various ways in which families deal with the situation. They are suddenly confronted with ethical questions and will have to assess their relationship with their criminal relative. While the lives of these families continue, the detainee enters a kind of time capsule, being imprisoned. The purpose of this book is to create awareness of the struggles that these families endure. Just like the criminal relative, the family is often socially convicted as well, with a risk of (further) seclusion from society. Therefore, both adults and children experience the topic as taboo.
