⫷ Hardcover Those Who Save Us store ❒ Ebook Author Jenna Blum ⇽ ⫷ Hardcover Those Who Save Us store ❒ Ebook Author Jenna Blum ⇽ Blum, who worked for Steven Spielberg s Shoah Foundation, takes a direct, unsentimental look at the Holocaust in her first novel The narrative alternates between the present day story of Trudy, a history professor at a Minneapolis university collecting oral histories of WWII survivors both German and Jewish , and that of her aged but once beautiful German mother, Anna, who left her country when she married an American soldier Interspersed with Trudy s interviews with German immigrants, many of whom reveal unabashed anti Semitism, Anna s story flashes back to her hometown of Weimar As Nazi anti Jewish edicts intensify in the 1930s, Anna hides her love affair with a Jewish doctor, Max Stern When Max is interned at nearby Buchenwald and Anna s father dies, Anna, carrying Max s child, goes to live with a baker who smuggles bread to prisoners at the camp Anna assists with the smuggling after Trudy s birth until the baker is caught and executed Then Anna catches the eye of the Obersturmfhrer, a high ranking Nazi officer at Buchenwald, who suspects her of also supplying the inmates with bread He coerces her into a torrid, abusive affair, in which she remains complicit to ensure her survival and that of her baby daughter Blum paints a subtle, nuanced portrait of the Obersturmfhrer, complicating his sordid cruelty with delicate facets of his personality Ultimately, present and past overlap with a shocking yet believable coincidence Blum s spare imagery is nightmarish and intimate, imbuing familiar panoramas of Nazi atrocity with stark new power This is a poised, hair raising debut Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.Family secrets of Nazi Germany are at the core of this powerful first novel told in two narratives that alternate between New Heidelberg, Minnesota, in the present, and the small town of Weimar near Buchenwald during World War II Trudy is a professor of German history in Minnesota, where she s teaching a seminar on women s roles in Nazi Germany and conducting interviews with Germans about how they re dealing with what they did during the war But her mother, Anna, won t talk about it, not even to her own daughter Trudy knows, she remembers, that Anna was mistress to a big Nazi camp officer Why did she do it Was he Trudy s father The interviews are a plot contrivance to introduce a range of attitudes, from blatant racism to crippling survivor guilt But the characters, then and now, are drawn with rare complexity, including a brave, gloomy, unlucky rescuer and a wheeler dealer survivor Anna s story is a gripping mystery in a page turner that raises universal questions of shame, guilt, and personal responsibility Hazel Rochman Copyright American Library Association All rights reserved Ways to Save Money in Your Business business,
