READ A BIT I WANTED TO a bit I wanted to what was going to happen to everyone the reality of the second world war never makes easy reading but I loved the drama and enjoyed following Rosa through her experiences good and bad Rosa s able to escape Berlin through the Kindertransport Her story わたしに××しなさい! 3 [Watashi ni xx Shinasai! 3] 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 storytself 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 German at a Glance: Phrase Book Dictionary for Travelers if the author wanted to keep the reader at arms length just as Rosa often pushed people away Also Rosa decided tognore all news and Blühende Heide information regarding Germany and the wart Alchemy and Arcana: an Urban Fantasy Novella Collection is never mentioned that she hears anything on the radio people talking or reads headlines She takes the Pollyanna outlook thatf 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 Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F.

War and a German citizen He and his family are not even practicing and a German citizen He and his family are not even practicing I of The English German Girl shows the ncreasing pressure and hardship this family Otto Inga their son Heinrich and their daughters Rosa and Hedi experience over the next five years culminating Torah With Ramban's Commentary Translated, Annotated, And Elucidated: Devarim/Deuteronomy (Artscroll) in Kristallnachtn November of 1938 Although begged by Inga from the beginning to consider emigrating Otto refuses Even after losing his job at the hospital being forced to move from his apartment and the ncreasing restrictions on Jews he refuses to face reality It s only after Kristallnacht when he and his son find themselves sent to the Sachsenhausen concentration camp and are miraculously released sometime later does he finally face the fact that they must leave It s too lateThe rest of the book s the story of the middle child Rosa They manage to get her out on a Kindertransport to England to live with Otto s
cousin Fifteen by this time the hope s that Rosa will somehow be able to get for them a visa Fifteen by this time the hope s that Rosa will somehow be able to get for them a visa perhaps a work permit that will enable all of them to emigrate to England The English German Girl s a well written novel of this family s attempt to escape fate the characters are well drawn and sympathetic Mr Simons captures the period both n Nazi Germany and Time Capsule in London The story of the Kindertransports different and Hot Under the Collar interesting Unfortunately as the reader you end up just as muchn the dark and confused as the children on the train Since there Horses is no background on the trains no explanation of how they started who was responsible or howt worked they might as well be taking an ordinary trip Sort of a day trip to freedom only for children under 18 Contrast this with the chapters on Rosa s entering nurses training Goblin King in London which take up almost the last third of the book and you can see the problem The compelling tale leaves you strandedOne of the mostnteresting parts of the book The Luthier's Apprentice is an appendix that lists all of the real life characters used by the authorn the book He does this so well that I never realized they were real people as I was not familiar with them In the appendix the author lists them all and gives a short description of what they did and who they were This was very effectiveI liked this book The Kindertransport was the best part even though Factories in the Field: The Story of Migratory Farm Labor in California it only took a few pages I wantedt fleshed out with a realistic dea of what t must really have been like Hundreds of children torn from their parents alone on a Nazi train going somewhere they no nothing about or were even too young to comprehend must have been a lot terrifying than the simple train ride presented here It left me wanting a lot Too bad Just started Villa Mendl: Leben und Schicksal der Ankerbrot-Erbin Bettina Mendl impressed so far Finishedt and I really enjoyed
IT I WAS FASCINATED BY THE I was fascinated by the of the kindertransport and some passages n the book were really moving I felt uite emotional at some parts of the story and t was uite a cliff hanger the day the war started and what that meant for Rosie was devastating If I have any criticism at all and this Schlechter Sex 2 is minorI sometimes got a bit frustrated with the length of descriptive passages when I was longing for the action to move on but as I saidt s minor and on the whole I liked the book very muchI was also New Jewish Voices: Plays Produced by the Jewish Repertory Theatre interesting to read the list of peoplen the afterword and found that as I had thought some of the characters were real people although I believe the main characters were fictiona. Ts Rosa finds herself wondering f there are some vows that can’t be keptA sweeping tale of love and loss with the poignant story of the Kindertransport at ts heart this s an exceptional accomplishment from one of Britain’s bravest and most vibrant young writers.
