Roxana Recenzii Un comentariu Chiar daca este un moment trist, dezastruos si crunt al omenirii, intotdeauna m-a fascinat sa citesc cat mai mult despre Holocaust, sa aflu prin ce au trecut evreii, sa descopar cat de nepasatoare a fost lumea din jur la suferintele acestora. Si chiar daca mi se rupea sufletul am continuat sa citesc. Lucrurile pe care le-am aflat sunt tragice. La Auschwitz au murit peste 1 milion de persoane in cele mai cumplite moduri. Most of them rated the book in four or five stars, but some of them calling the novel mediocre showed a lower rating three stars. It is necessary to admit that their opinions werent unfounded and most critical comments were fair.

One story is about the tragedy of a Jewish girl named Sarah. The story is based on historical fact.
In , on the orders of German military authorities, French police brutally arrested all Jewish families in Paris. Almost all of them perished in concentration camps. France wanted to forget about its anti-human past and thoroughly concealed it.
The author reminds us of those tragic facts. I am not going to retell the stories. They are already well known, but the book gave birth to some of my thoughts. In her novel, the author writes with anxiety and great concern that people want to forget about the Holocaust.
No one wants to be reminded of that, nobody wants to think about that. In their naivety, they missed the point when one of the most horrible and bloodthirsty variety of anthropoids resembling humans became active.
Russian anthropoids captured power in the Soviet Russia, invented concentration camps and, killing over a million innocent people yearly. Over a period of 20 years they killed at least 20 million, maybe more. Then World War II broke out and the world forgot about the 20 million innocent victims. Humanlike anthropoids appeared in other countries, and people continued to believe that they were ordinary criminals.
Using modern technology, fascist anthropoids made the killing of humans a branch of industry. For human beings, the Holocaust is impossible to understand, it is just unexplainable. And the only way to prevent it from happening again is to never forget it. The reviewed book is multidimensional, emotionally written but unfortunately, as it has been mentioned in some reviews, it has weak points as well.
Nevertheless, I was impressed with the book, its main message makes the readers think, and this is a sign of good literature. The advantage of the book is in the strong civic position of the author that, I think, has made the book a bestseller. This book is about events which were not wide-known; it reminds people about the necessity to be alert. Otherwise, the modern anthropoids will commit a new Holocaust, and now all people can become their victims.
In my opinion, the book deserves not less than four stars. Sol Tetelbaum. View all 35 comments. I was intrigued by the plot for this book. A young girl locks her brother in a cupboard at their apartment in Paris before the Police, at the behest of the Nazi's, take away her and her family.
They wait for several days in a detention center, in conditions like the Superdome, before being sent to camps in Southern France, and we wonder if she will retrieve her little brother before he dies or starves or hopefully, is rescued. Unfortunately, another storyline involving a two dimensional American I was intrigued by the plot for this book. Unfortunately, another storyline involving a two dimensional American woman whining about her insensetive French husband comes in every other chapter and the mediocre writing makes what could have been an interesting story less than satisfying.
View all 44 comments. I might have given this book higher marks if I hadn't just finished the infinitely superior The Book Thief. But as it is I'm feeling pretty generous with my 2 stars. The subject matter was intriguing. I didn't realize what had happened with the Jews in France.
But the author spent too little time with Sarah and her experience there and too much time with boring, self-absorbed, present day Julia and her sex life. View all 22 comments. This story could only have been written by a French person because anyone else could, and possibly would, be seen as casting stones.
Fortunately, Tatiana de Rosnay is a French citizen and her bravery is outstanding as she brings to light the heartbreaking historical story that runs underneath the fictional story like a dark, terrifying catacomb below the streets of Paris. On July 16 and 17, , 13, Jews were arrested in Paris and the suburbs, deported and assassinated at Auschwitz. In the This story could only have been written by a French person because anyone else could, and possibly would, be seen as casting stones.
May those who tried to save them be thanked. Passerby, never forget! A huge arena with seats and galleries reaching nearly to the roof where usually races were held; on those days of July, the walls were filled permanently with fear, confusion, desolation, and misery.
Over six thousand Parisian policemen were commissioned to carry out this atrocity. This is also the story of Julia who, for the 60th anniversary, was to write the story of this terrible event for the American magazine she worked for in Paris.
This novel is brilliant, and so well written that when I set the book down the first time after starting it, I was convinced I would never be able to write a review because I was too upset. Not just upset, angry. We are now almost 77 years removed from this event — and how quickly we forget. They are already happening.
