Abstract:

It is 1947. A sixteen-year-old German orphan, Stefan Landau, has come to live with his aunt's family in England. Elisabeth does not know what to make of her sister's son - this dirty, traumatized boy in his shabby Hitler Youth uniform. For among Stefan's meagre possessions is a portrait of a girl with long copper hair by a painter called Michael Ross. A portrait that brings back memories, both painful and precious, of Elisabeth's life in the years before the war ... Spanning decades and generations, THE GERMAN BOY is the moving story of two families entangled by love and friendship, divided by prejudice and war, and of a brief, encounter between a man and a woman that touched each of their lives forever.
