  • Тема Голокосту — одна з найпопулярніших у сучасній історичній літературі. Ні, констатуючи це, я не даю якоїсь оцінки даному факту. Просто прийшла пора про це говорити. Згадувати це. Розказувати. Щоб усі знали. Щоб ніколи зновуІда Фінк розповідає про те, що їй довелося пережи [...]


  • Excellent Holocaust fiction from a Polish Jew who was born in 1923, lived in the Polish ghetto set up by the Nazis until 1942 and then went into hiding until the end of the war. The story is about 2 Polish Jewish teenage girls whose mother died and whose father finds out that the ghetto is about to be liquidated and arranges for the girls to escape with fake papers to Germany to work while he hides with a bee-keeper. It is obvious when reading this excellent story that this is Ida Fink's own per [...]


  • Кілька років тому усвідомила, що одна з найпопулярніших тем в моїй бібліотеці - історії євреїв Східної Європи. З книжки в книжку сюжет змінювався, але візерунок повторювався - з буденних клопотів раптом визирали війна, страх і смерть. Тоді подумала, що яким би не був інтерес, [...]


  • This book focuses on the journey of two Jewish Polish girls who try to escape by taking on the identity of non-Jewish Polish girls. It follows the twists and turns of their journey through WWII. This was especially interesting to read as I finished my trip to Poland where I learned so much more about Poland during WWII and saw many of the places in the setting of this book. Ms. Fink wrote more a description of all they went through in keeping their identities "secret" with details on documents, [...]


  • The playacting that the protagonist had to engage in raised interesting themes, especially in the context of disguise during the Holocaust. I appreciated the sister relationship that was at the center of this struggle.



  • A beautifully written, moving book. But it ends suddenly when the front moves and the first French truck enters the German village where the narrator was hiding. I feel a great need to learn what happened to the people described throughout the book or, at least, why the author chose not to mention even her own, postwar fate.


  • an ultimately disappointing addition to the long- suffering jew in nazi germany genre. i blame it on a choppy and poorly executed translation that failed to vitalize the plight of the two sisters who try to avoid the death sentence every jew faced in the 1930-40s. i ignored the 50 page rule thinking the tone and the content would merit examination. my bad.
