Описание

In 1930s Berlin, young Henrik, the son of a Jewish father and Aryan mother, watches the world around him crumbling: people are rioting in the streets, a strange yellow star begins appearing in shop windows, and friends are forced to move-or they simply disappear.

After his father becomes gravely ill, Henrik and his little sister, Greta, are taken by their mother to Poland for safety. However, not even the pastoral surroundings of their new home can protect them from the terrors of war. When the Nazis invade and Greta is kidnapped, Henrik must shed his youthful innocence and search for his lost sister, a quest that will further reveal a harrowing landscape of violence and struggle?but also unexpected connections.

Uniquely told from the perspective of youth plunged into adult chaos, Pastel Orphans is a coming-of-age story that explores profound lessons in self-belief, kindness, and human endurance.

Revised edition: This edition of Pastel Orphans includes editorial revisions.

    I won a copy of Pastel Orphans, by Gemma Liviero, through the First Reads giveaway program.Pastel Orphans is a coming of age story set in Berlin and Poland during the Nazi Era. The story is predominately told though the eyes of the protagonist, Henrik whose sister is kidnapped by a SS General. Henrik’s family had to leave their ailing Jewish father behind in Berlin so live in his mother’s homeland, Poland. Pastel Orphans depicts the lesser-known practice of the “Germanization Program” where blond-haired and blue-eyed children are kidnapped and raised to purify the German race. At the outset of the novel, Henrik’s perspective is very simple and his understanding is limited. He portrays events, such as Kristallnacht through a child’s eyes. However, he understands more as he matures and shares his understanding with the readers. The Polish resistance is also highlighted as he treks through Poland searching for his missing sister. Henrik meets Rebekah, who is part of the resistance, who later takes over as the narrator. The plot has many twists and turns and did not let me as the reader become too settled or complacent.
