Elinor Brent Dyer was an extraordinarily prolific author who wrote than 100 books in total many of them in the famous Chalet School series about a 1930s girls school set in the Austrian Tyrol I ve been collecting them for years and had been searching for this one in particular the rare The Chalet School in Exile set during the Nazis Anschluss of Austria The girls of the school fall foul of the Gestapo after trying to save an old Jewish man from being beaten to death and have to escape Austria on foot through the Alps It s an extraordinarily vivid snapshot of a time and a place and one of the few children s books of the era to deal directly with the terror of the Nazis I read it when I was about 10 and it made a deep impression on me at the time An original first edition hardback with the original dust jacket showing a SS officer confronting the girls is worth over 1000 though this is cheap compared to the almost 4000 you need to fork out for a first edition copy of the first book in the series The School at the Chalet I however bought my copy from Girls Gone By publishers which re issue the rarer editions at a much affordable price and feature the famous dustjacket as well

Brent-Dyer ñ 8 Free download The Chalet School in Exile Summary ã 108 When Madge Bettany decides to start a school in the Austrian Alps little does she realize how such a small idea will so completely change her life. I m surprised to realise that I ve not formally reviewed The Chalet School in Exile I ve mentioned it repeatedly across my blog and made no bones of my admiration for it So now it s time to redress the balance and let you know why and how this book is outstandingPublished in 1940 it became part of the narrative of the Second World War Authors working in this time had roughly two choices she says generalising massively They could either acknowledge the war address it or ignore it Some of Brent Dyer s contemporaries sailed gloriously into a lavender scented future that made no reference to the tumultuous events occurring in the world outside their books Brent Dyer however did things a little differentlyExile is a provocative and brave book and one that reaches beyond its nature as a simple girls school story This book is dense with ideology and makes no bone in what it is Just take a moment to think about that a book being published right when we re in the middle of fighting the war against Nazism that deliberately and boldly points out that not all Germans are Nazis That nuanced ideology doesn t end there even after the Gestapo persecute the Chalet School community and lead to a group of the girls Miss Wilson Jack Maynard and Gottfreid Mensch escaping through the mountains to freedom Wrapped up in all of that is some impressive notions on how women can fight war There s a deliberate and conscious separation of the women of the Chalet School from the men s war and even that most assimilated man into the community Jack Maynard very clearly refers to the Chalet School Peace League as yours and not his Words and language are how these women fight and survive and the power of these words is potent when the Peace League itself faces discoverySo we ve got all that which to be honest is a book and a half by itself But what we also have is a powerful journey of growth by these girl characters a cipher if you will for the adolescent WW2 reader and we have a society that we ve come to love surviving against all odds The Chalet School and therefore you will and does endure

    Elinor M. Brent-Dyer ñ 8 Free download The Chalet School in Exile (PDF) April 2020 I got my hands on a Girls Gone By unedited version and I’m fascinated by what Armada chose to cut in the 90s Politics mostly paragraphs of discussion on Austria have been cut in half or omitted entirely I don’t know enough about internal Austrian politics circa 1938 to know if that’s because Brent Dyer’s depiction turned out to be inaccurate or if Dr Jen was considered verbose to the point of boring readers Al
