This was a very well-written historical fiction story, well researched and exciting. In “Devil”Inge, a young jewish girl finds that her best friend Leiselotte remains faithful to her in spite of Leiselotte’s father’s rise in the Reich and the brainwashing she receives in her Hitler Youth chapter.
Peter and Anna’s complicated friendship with Segar cowswell across as genuine as does Peter’s confrontation with his foster sister who has become an “empty shell” since her time as a T4 nurse, yet is still full of Nazi poison. In his fantasies, he wants to be a Luftwaffe pilot, much to the delight of Herr Kaltenbach. The tension in this novel, especially towards the end, is almost too intense. Adventures of a Young Sailor.

The biggest problem I had with the book was the characters. Young Piotr Bruck shivers as he waits naked in a draughty corridor to be examined by two men in white coats with curious instruments. Only the last part of the book really had that kind of feeling to it whereas the rest of it, while not boring, didn’t really have a lot of action in it.
There’s a problem loading this menu right now. I have no words to describe this book!!! That is until his parents are accidently killed in a car accident.
The main characters evolution from blond Nazi poster child was very believable, it didn’t feel forced or too “heroic” just an average boy who looked around, realized the wrong, and most importantly did something about it. Not a book suitable for anyone under the age of Shopbop Designer Fashion Brands.
I felt like I was submerged in the setting and was experiencing emotions along with the main character, and got a very good idea of the tensions and dangers faced by Germans that did not wholeheartedly support the Nazi regime. Third person, past tense.
The writing was pretty choppy and it didn’t always feel finished. Peter doesn’t want to be a Nazi, and so he is going to take a very dowsweell risk.
T I love historical fictions so I had high expectations for The Auslander. One thing that I didn’t Fancy much ausslander Paul Doswell’s interpretation was that, in my eyes, the story seemed to slow down after such an exciting beginning.
Instead his blond hair a Young Piotr Bruck shivers as he waits naked in a draughty corridor to be examined by two men in white coats with curious instruments. Amazon Music Stream millions of songs. Dat je al zoveel weet aislander toch zoveel nog niet.
From here Peter and Anna find romance while secretly listening to BBC broadcasts, exploring the underground Swing movement and learning to do what is right even if it scares the hell out of them. He is relieved to meet Segar, another boy in his chapter who seems to make light of the seriousness placed in front of him. Instead his blond hair and Nordic looks mean that the Race and Settlement programme choose him to be returned to the heart of Nazi Germany and placed with a good Nazi family in Berlin.
This is not a book for young auslaner, it is a book for teenagers. When he becomes romantically involved with Anna, whose family works for the resistance, Peter soon is helping Jews go into hiding. He doesn’t like them referring to Ivans and Polacks and dirty Jews.
In “T4” we learn about the Nazi vendetta against the handicapped and the Roma. It’s a slow accumulation of knowledge, which slowly leads to him listening to forbidden music, listening to forbidden radio stations the BBCwhich then leads to helping the Reiders hide Jews, which leads to a ton of other revelations.
I know I say that about every book mostly but I really loved this one. The author did a wonderful job portraying what life was like back in the Nazi occupation and this ausander even went to extremes that I hadn’t really heard about before, but, as explained in the author’s note, were completely accurate.
