Characters The English German Girl

Read & download ☆ The English German Girl 109 Characters The English German Girl Ts Rosa finds herself wondering if there are some vows that can’t be keptA sweeping tale of love and loss with the poignant story of the Kindertransport at its heart this is an exceptional accomplishment from one of Britain’s bravest and most vibrant young writers. Rosa is able to escape Berlin through the Kindertransport Her story is one of many children who were separated from family never to see them again as they fled the Nazi s growing power and destructionThe story itself never allowed me to feel like I was right there with the Klein family even though the descriptions of Berlin and Kristallnacht were well done I felt as if the author wanted to keep the reader at arms length just as Rosa often pushed people away Also Rosa decided to ignore all news and information regarding Germany and the war it is never mentioned that she hears anything on the radio people talking or reads headlines She takes the Pollyanna outlook that if she were to go back to Germany she would find her family living their normal life simply waiting for her She knew the dire straights they were in since she lived it so it s odd that it s not mentioned just to show how she ignores the information or willfully chooses to twist it into a positive spin It s like radio and newspapers and the spread of information didn t existThere are no uotes encompassing dialogue just dashes so it can be confusing who is speaking I don t understand why these were usedI appreciate that this story had no happy ending and that it depicted the suffering of those who survived

The English German Girl

Read & download ☆ The English German Girl 109 Characters The English German Girl This powerful meticulously researched novel is a moving tale of one girl’s struggle against a world in turmoil In 1930s Berlin choked by the tightening of Hitler’s fist the Klein family is gradually losing everything that is precious to them Their fifteen year old. I have read so many books both fiction and non about the Holocaust This one is completely different having to deal with the Kindertranport trains that took children from Germany to safety in England Imagine being a Jew in Germany in the 1930s having experienced the prejudice and racism there trying to live in a world that wanted you dead and choosing one of your three children to make their way to safety in hopes that she could be the means of your escape from the horrors as well It was a lot of pressure for Rosa aged 15 but somehow she takes it all on with grace and aplombI agree that the start is a little slow but I appreciated so much the research that went into the writing of this book For me it made it so much real and vivid to see the names of the German streets written as they would be in German The description of Kristallnacht though it s not explicitly named as such was terrifying to imagine Rosa out on the streets unable to know whom to trust made my heart raceSimons s description of how tirelessly and ultimately fruitlessly the Jews of Germany worked to try to escape the country really brought home how impossible it was to leave So many nations weren t keen on having Jews flood their borders regardless of the danger they were in there was a great deal of anti Semitism present in most of the Western world The fact that the Kindertransports even existed was amazing in retrospectThis is an incredible novel of what it took for one girl to come to England alone knowing very little of the language and very little of the culture or even her own religion for which so many of her fellow Germans would pay the ultimate price It s an engrossing novel I found myself eager to delve back into the book whenever I was pulled away Had I not been on vacation this weekend I m sure I would have finished this in two daysHighly recommended for all fans of WWII history and of the Holocaust

Read & download ☆ The English German Girl 109 Characters The English German Girl Daughter Rosa slips out of Germany on a Kindertransport train to begin a new life in England Charged with the task of securing a safe passage for her family she vows that she will not rest until they are safe But as war breaks out and she loses contact with her paren. An inspiring story of courage and love The English German Girl is a fictional representation of the Holocaust with considerable emphasis on the Kindertransport program Prior to Nazi Germany enforcing the Nuremberg Laws against Jews the Klein family is happy productive and loving Fourteen year old Rosa the protagonist has an older brother and a younger sister Otto her father is a physician a skilled surgeon Her mother Inga is loving and supportive Heinrich her brother is bright and gregarious often involved with his Zionist friends Hedi her sister is young innocent and precious They have a daily housekeeper plenty of money and many friends This idyllic life comes to an end with Nazi persecution As Jews the family is forced to move into an undesirable neighborhood Otto can no longer practice medicine or work in a hospital Inga is forced to do other people s laundry to make ends meet Now comes Kristallnacht Rosa s father and brother are arrested starved and beaten Her mother and Hedi spend the night at a railway station pretending to be travelers Rosa is protected by their former housekeeper but only for a few hours Meanwhile their home is ransacked With each passing month Jews are forced deeper into sualid ghettos They have very little to eat Travel outside of the mandated ghetto is forbidden Synagogues are burned Jews are beaten on the street And each day brings new threats of deportation to the East which increasingly means terrible things In almost all cases the surviving families of those sent east never again hear from their loved onesOtto rejects the idea of leaving Germany for years Like so many others he insists that this persecution against Jews will swiftly pass and that they will soon resume their old lives By the time he realizes that Nazis intend to eradicate all Jews it is too late to obtain emigration visas Since Jews are stripped of their passports and have no visas they are stuck in a Germany already planning their extermination This becomes frighteningly tangible with each passing dayOtto comes home one day with news that one of their children can obtain passage to England as part of a program called Kindertransport As long as a family in England will vouch to care for a child Kindertransport will allow passage But only one child per family may leave It is assumed that Hedi the youngest will go But the Kleins change their mind and send Rosa instead She will live with distant relatives in London Then when it is safe they will send for Hedi They assume that eventually the entire family will be reunited in England Rosa arrives in London and does her best to adapt to a new life in a new country living with strangers She corresponds by letter with her family in Germany But as the months and years pass letters from her family stop arriving and Rosa s letters are returned undeliverable The balance of the novel involves Rosa s new family and her new life in England Her foster parents have a son about Rosa s age named Samuel Not long after Rosa arrives Samuel goes off to war He is injured and returns home to recuperate During this time Samuel and Rosa fall in love and soon Rosa is pregnant Samuel s parents will not allow such a condition to exist and Rosa leaves She is suddenly all alone in London with a dream of one day being a nurse She believes that Samuel does not love her and she tries to move on with her life But she misunderstands Samuel and his powerful love for her Horribly frightened and with no one to help her Rosa is once on her own in a strange landThe English German Girl is an inspiring story of courage and love The characters are well developed and the novel has good pace Fear is the traction of this story and Simons wields it at a considerable stride The author uses excellent guided imagery placing the reader in the midst of the horror of Kristallnacht and the blitz in London One can feel the terror of being a Jew in Berlin and the reader can almost choke upon the smoke in London s blitz On the other hand the reader does not uite adeuately feel the physical attraction between Rosa and Samuel This portion of the story could have been effectively explored And while doing this might have changed the book from a rating of PG to R the reader would have been far emotionally engulfed by the result There is a long gap between the time when Rosa stops hearing from her family in Germany and the time she understands why And while this is exactly what happened to Kindertransport children who were old enough to recall their family left behind the reader is left guessing about their loved ones fortune or demise This presents a lost opportunity Perhaps for the sake of concision the 342 page galley seemed unnecessarily burdensome at times or to avoid graphic detail the readers is unable to walk with Rosa s parents and siblings as they are deported from Berlin to Auschwitz This represents a lost opportunity in the plot Whether this decision was made in view of the need for brevity or whether the author wanted us only to see the Holocaust through the eyes of Rosa it s a lost prospect Rosa s life in England expands significantly in two directions her emotional loss from losing Samuel and her desire to become self sufficient Rosa does her best to become a nurse following in the footsteps of her physician father She survives nightly bombing attacks by the Luftwaffe the terror of which is explored carefully by the author This reviewer s galley presents a book in an unconventional format Dialog does not occur within traditional uotation marks Nor is it consistently initiated in a new paragraph When this is blended together with narrative the reader sometimes has difficulty separating dialog from description On some pages narrative constitutes impossibly long paragraphs onerous to a reader s desire for chunks of data rather than a torrential flood Was the book purposefully edited in this way If so why The English German Girl is a grand mixture of excellent description memorable characters and viable dialog minus the lack of uotation marks The reader experiences the sights sounds fear and desire of characters who exist in a time of great crisis and desperate physical danger Perhaps one attempt at editing might have earned this book another starReviewer Charles S Weinblatt is the author of published fiction and non fiction including the popular Holocaust novel Jacob s Courage Mazo Publishers
