In ‘Unorthodox,’ A Religious Woman Leaves Her Past Behind


For my very first NPR piece, I reported on the new Netflix series ‘Unorthodox’ created by Anna Winger and Alexa Karolinski.

The show is based on the memoir by writer Deborah Feldman, also called ‘Unorthodox’. I traveled to Berlin to meet with many of the people, including Ms. Feldman, behind the show. While there, I had a chance to understand what it means to tell a story like this one in a place like Germany.
