Anna all the way. It brought back memorie s of my post war childhood. I was nine in 1950 living in Heidelberg and going into the 1st grade. I sympathized with the characters even though I was not their religion. T he book should be a recommended class
Anna’s Father is a writer who writes against the policies Hitler. He is being watched by the SS and knows he must be careful. He learned the SS is going to take his passport away, he leaves Berlin for Switzerland. Mrs. Kerr and the children stay to pack up the house. Their Christian servant, Heimpi, will put their things in storage and send them to the family later. They leave on Saturday and the SS comes to get their passports on Sunday. What a miracle.
After a time in Switzerland, Father decides that they should check about going to England. He thinks he can get a better job the. He suggests he go to England for a month to find a job and house then send for his family. Mother objects saying she will go with him to pick out the house this time. The children stay with the people who run the inn. They all manage to survive the separation but it is hard on all of them. Anna vows the family won’t be separated again.
The book is good although it is a little dry. It does give us a look at one family trying to find a safe place during Hitler’s rise to power!
