ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- This completes the loose trilogy that started with Hitler's Daughter and Pennies for Hitler and is probably more affecting than the previous two. It follows the journey of Johannes, a boy from Poland whose parents are doctors. He believes what he has heard about Hitler and looks forward to joining the Hitler Youth, until the mistake, as he thinks it, is made, and he finds himself consigned to a concentration camp. There is also Frau Marks, who has tried to save Jewish babies until she is betrayed; and Helga, who helps Johannes at the lowest point of his life; their stories of survival and eventually finding refuge in Australia form the basis of the novel. The theme however is finding forgiveness, and how difficult that is… A fitting conclusion to the war novels. Lindy Jones


This is the story of Johannes, and Frau Timmins, and the strange girl now known as 'Helga'.  It is also the story of how they survived the death camps, the vast wilderness faced by refugees in World War Two, and how they eventually found happiness in Australia.  The final title in the multi award-winning Hitler series, this compelling story follows on from Heidi's story in Hitler's Daughter and Georg's in Pennies for Hitler, and shows us that evil must be fought and won. But once you've won, the hardest and most necessary battle is to understand and forgive.  And to learn how to love and live again. Ages: 10 years+
