Hitler's Daughter by Jackie FrenchAn prizewinning novel for readers of 8 - 12, told through the voice of a contemporary child, as she weaves a story about a secret child of Hitler. The bombs were falling, the smoke was rising from the concentration camps, but all Hitler's daughter knew was lessons with Fraulein Gelber, the hedgehogs she rescued from the cold and infrequent visits from her beloved Duffi, her father. Was it just a story? Did Hitler's daughter really exist? If you were Hitler's daughter, would it all be your fault? Could you still love your own father if he had done what Hitler did? Mark, a contemporary child, starts to question his own beliefs as he listens to the story that Anna weaves. A wonderfully sensitive and gripping time-slip novel that will sit well with When Hitler Stole Pink Rabbit; Number the Stars and Big Tom. WW2 is a major historical topic studied in in UK primary and secondary schools, but this novel also deals with questions children so often ask of the 'What if?' variety.
... a joy to read. 'Canberra Times
't go down there rooms, where Duffi talked with people in uniform and flowery dresses'. As the days go by, and as Heidi becomes aware of concentration camps, Anna's story raises questions for Mark about good and evil, questions which his busy parents find too time-consuming or too difficult to answer. How was the land for his family farm taken from the aborigines? 'If everyone thinks something is right, but you know it's wrong, what do you do then?'
's Book Council of Australia's Book of the Year. The images from history have been made fresh for a new generation and this haunting story will appeal to all readers aged ten and over. (Kirkus UK)'
