Recommends it for: history teacher, people who like history, people that want to understand WO2 better
I think this is a great book to read to better understand WO 2 rules against Jews and what it did with people you read the fear they had. I read it in German but I am sure that you can also find it in Englisch. If you're a history teacher and you want your pupils to understand how the Jews were impacted at the start then this is a book to let them understand.

I am so sorry to say that ... but this cannot even hold a candle to The bookthief or The boy in the striped pyjamas.

THIS STORY HAD SOOOOO MUCH POTENTIAL!!! BUT .... Well ... You see two boys growing up together, but it never feels like they established a deep and heartfelt connection.
There is that one scene where Hans stands up for Friedrich, but it feels like he only does it because he was educated to tell the truth. He does not do it because he wants to protect his friend.
Until the end, they

Wow. Das Buch ist wirklich gewaltig. Gefühle von Ekel, Trauer, Wut und Veleugnung überkommen einem beim lesen. Sehr gut geschriebenes Buch. Mich überkommt einfach Trauer und Wut wenn ma bedenkt dass es keine fiktionale Geschichte ist, und die Aktualität doch (leider) immer gegeben ist.
Ende....

Langweilig. Dafür, dass es auf Fiktion basiert ist, hätte sich der Autor etwas spannenderes einfallen lassen können, da war das Tagebuch der Anne Frank schon unterhaltsamer.

Eine wundervolle aber traurige Geschichte zweier Freunde im Nationalsozialismus. Dadurch wurden einem die schreckliche Vorkommnisse noch eine aufgezeigt. Ich wollte es nicht aus der Hand legen

Ein sehr gutes Buch, das wirklich berührt und zeigt wie brutal diese Zeit tatsächlich war. Sehr zu empfehlen!!

Dieses Buch hatte ich eig. in der Schule gelesen, fand es aber sooo gut!
Ich hatte sogar an manchen Stellen Tränchen in den Augen!

Thema in diesem Buch ist, grob gesagt, Juden im 3.Reich.
Zwei kleine Jungen erlben die Zeit des Nationalsozialismus.
Beide sind Freunde.
Doch der Eine, Friedrich, wird ausgegrenzt, nach und nach immer mehr. Er darf kein normaler, kleiner Junge mehr sein. Sein Freund versteht es zu der damalien Zeit nicht, warum.
