Abstract:

This is the story of two children caught in the midst of war. It is 1939 and thirteen-year-old Ilse, half-Jewish, has been sent out of Germany by her Aryan mother to a place of supposed safety. Her journey takes her from the labyrinthine bazaars of Morocco to Paris, a city made hectic at the threat of Nazi invasion. At the same time in Germany, Nicolai, a boy miserably destined for the Nazi Youth movement, finds comfort in the friendship of Ilse's mother, the nursemaid hired to take care of his young sister. Gripping and poignant, The Children?s War is a stunning novel of wartime lives, of parents and children, of adventure and self-discovery.
