Über diesen Titel
Escaping the Warsaw Ghetto to a life of danger and freedom as a partisan in the forest of Parczew, fourteen-year-old Misha Edelman learns a harsh lesson about survival that parallels the story of the mythical phoenix.From School Library Journal:
Grade 7 Up?British teen Rich Buchanan is alienated from his stepfather, Misha Edelman, because of the man's seemingly strict disciplinary standards. Rich is also worried about the consequences of his involvement in an anti-Semitic incident at school. Just before a trip to Australia to see his long-lost sister, Misha gives the boy a manuscript he wrote describing his family's Holocaust experiences in Poland and his fear-filled, harrowing ordeal to survive; he wants his stepson to understand his life and why he acts the way he does. His account constitutes most of the novel and is as vivid and believable a first-person narrative as any written by a Holocaust survivor. Through letters to his girlfriend Katie, Rich reveals his increasing empathy for his stepfather and his guilt over the way he has treated him. An afterword tells of Rich's journalist father's death in Uruguay and contains a letter to Katie about his emotional reconciliation with Misha, who rushed back from his reunion with his sister to be with him at this time. Readers may see the young man's sketchy missives as an unwarranted interruption in the flow of Misha's exciting narrative, but they do show how he changes his mind about his stepfather. An inspiring affirmation of life in two generations.?Jack Forman, Mesa College Library, San Diego
