This is a unique account of what happened to every day Germans during and after the war. It is told from two different points of view and that too is well done. The book is disturbing at times which isn't surprising considering the subject matter.
My only complaint is with Amazon. It was supposed to be part of a free shipping package, but when one of the books I ordered was not available they shipped anyway and charged me for shipping!

Those Who Save Us brings us in Germany in the 1940’s –WWII. Anna Schelmmer a young, German woman who falls in love with a Jewish doctor. When the life of her lover is threatened, she decides to hide him in her father’s home. However, her father, a Nazi supporter, discovers her secret and turns the young doctor over to the Gestapo.

Shortly after, Anna leaves her father’s house and gives birth to a little girl, Trudy. Anna is left alone to provide and care for her daughter in spite of poor living conditions brought on by the war. She does whatever it takes to give Trudy the best life in the poor circumstances and sacrifices so much for her daughter’s life as well as her own.

Jenna Blum took a risk to write a Holocaust story from a German perspective. However, I believe it was very well executed. Her writing is beautiful and the story is a moving one.

To all the history buffs out there as well as anyone looking for a great read, add this one to the list.

Enjoyed this book. Appreciated the character development and waiting for the past and present to reconnect.
Skillful writing but sloppy editing.

This is a well written book dealing Germans now living in America and how they deal with the tremendous guilt they feel from being German during WW!!. They bring their traumatic lives into the US and try to live with the memories. I guess you could compare it to post traumatic syndrome from the non military in the country where the war took place.

It took be a while to warm up to the characters (not sure that I ever really did to the mother) but it was a pretty good novel in the end.
I'd recommend it to others for a bit of a different perspective on Germany in WWII.

Took me a bit to get into this book, but did appreciate the slow realization of the heroine that her mother had many dimensions. The sex scenes are disturbing, and would make a male reader shudder at the bestiality of some, but the slow unravelling of the tale is quite intriguing. I liked the ending, as it was satisfying for me at every level. Kind of the best things could turn out to be. (do wish I had a mama who could cook like Anna, but then I'd weigh twice as much as I do now, so just as well).

This book is a real page turner, and you can easily identify with the character. You will cry at the ending. It is interesting to see Hitler from a German civilian point of view.
