Reviews for Daniel Half Human and the Good Nazi (2 vol.)
RatingComments
5Until the spring of 1933, Daniel has been lucky enough to enjoy a good German childhood with his well off, and well educated family. Daniel has even enjoyed jail, because one exciting night along with his best friend, Armin, they were caught painting a swastika on a wall in the hated Communist section of Hamburg. In their cell, the boys swear lasting brotherhood. This camaraderie is soon threatened by a family secret. Daniel learns that his mother is in fact Jewish, and therefore, in the eyes of the Nazis who are rapidly rising to power in Germany, half-human. Daniel decides to keep the truth a secret and he and Armin excitedly talk of joining the Hitler Youth. Armin's father forbids it, as he is a Socialist. Armin joins anyway and the seeds of tragedy are planted for both boys who remain friends despite everything. Daniel is forced to make a choice - stay in Germany and surely die or leave with his parents to a safe haven outside of Europe. The story shows the rise and fall of Nazi Germany and the rise and fall of a friendship that is destined to come full circle. This is a book about friendship and what we do in the name of our beliefs. It is well written and totally haunting. This is a book that both adults and children can read and enjoy. Sometimes we have to stand up and be counted no matter what the consequences.
