Someone named Eva was a great read about a young girl who lost her family during the Holocaust. In some parts of the story it had me stop and think about how that felt and what it looked like to be there in Milada's situation. Also at some points I thought ‘’wow Milada’s pretty stupid for doing that’’. What I don’t understand is why Hitler would put non Jewish people in the concentration camps. The end of the story was summed up good though Milada reunited with her mother but her father, brother and grandmother were killed. I also wonder were the author got this story from did she make it up or did she do lots of research for it? Milada’s baby sister Anechka also got adopted by a German family. This book was surprisingly never boring there was always a good, detailed part during the whole story. I thought it was great that Milada kept her grandmothers pin with her at all times to remember who she was, it wasn’t her fault she forgot her language and her grandmothers name and eventually forgot her real name she was put into an center were they forced her to become a young German girl. This book reminded me of the movie “The Boy in the Striped Pajamas” He was a German boy who finally found a friend in the concentration camp and went over to the concentration camp to help a boy find his father but it was too late and he got killed n the chemical showers. is book will make you think and learn more about world war two history read this amazing book to learn more.
