"This book needs to join the ranks of the classic survivor stories of WWII such as "Diary of Anne Frank" and "Man's Search for Meaning". It is truly that amazing!" InD'taleMagazine

"This novel is fast-paced and emotively worded and features a great selection of characters, flawed and poignantly three-dimensional." Historical Novel Society

Spanning thirteen years from 1940 to 1953 and set against the epic panorama of WWII, author Annette Oppenlander's SURVIVING THE FATHERLAND is a sweeping saga of family, love, and betrayal that illuminates an intimate part of history seldom seen: the children's war.

SURVIVING THE FATHERLAND tells the true and heart-wrenching stories of Lilly and Günter struggling with the terror-filled reality of life in the Third Reich, each embarking on their own dangerous path toward survival, freedom, and ultimately each other. Based on the author's own family and anchored in historical facts, this story celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the strength of war children.

    WARNING: Animal sensitivity

    Listening to Audiobook. Will update review when finished but wanted to add an alert for those wanting to listen or read. If you are sensitive to animal care/treatment, be forewarned. Be cautious in chapter 14. Extremely difficult sensitivity.

    Have now completed the audiobook. A bit slow in parts but overall compelling story. Sheds light on the war from a perspective rarely told. Wish there were more stories told from this perspective for a fuller understanding of what was happening behind the stories we know all too well.

    When you get to the end of the story, there are two more chapters with detail about the characters, etc. Just as important to the telling of the story, imho, to understand who they are/were.

    Lovely book, despite the ugliness and atrocities. Highly recommended but do be wary of the particular chapter noted above.
