Product description

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6-In order to amuse themselves while waiting for the school bus, a group of contemporary Australian children encourage their friend Anna to tell a story. "She always added details so you saw the story in your mind." But this time, the story has real characters in it. Anna imagines that Hitler had a daughter whom he kept hidden, because of a large birthmark on her face and a lame leg. Heidi, the imaginary child, leads a protected life during World War II with her governess. As the days go by, the story grows in power for 10-year-old Mark. He begins to wonder what it must have been like to have an evil father like Hitler, and he begins to question his own parents and the fact that they live on land that was originally occupied by Aborigines. The two stories proceed in tandem at an uneven pace. Heidi is the most interesting character. Mark is the only contemporary character developed in any depth, but his growing conflict with his parents and the ethical issues tossed up by the story are cut short and don't lead anywhere. For most of the book, it isn't clear how Anna knows enough to tell Heidi's story, complete with details of Berchtesgaden and Hitler's bunker. The answer to this question comes at the end. While affecting, it is also a letdown. The implication is that Anna's grandmother, who told her the story, was, or could have been, Hitler's daughter. While it is based on an interesting idea and could be used as a discussion starter, this novel is ultimately unsatisfying.

From Booklist

Gr. 4-7. What if Hitler had a physically disabled daughter he kept hidden because she didn't fit his prototype for breeding a superior Aryan race? In Australia today Mark listens to his friend Anna make up a story about Heidi, a Nazi leader's child who knows her dad only as a kind visitor. Her story makes Mark ask questions about his own family. Would he know if his parents were doing something wrong? Would he go along with them? His mother doesn't understand why television programs about the Holocaust appear ("it's hard to watch that sort of thing"). Dad jokes around, but he gets furious when Mark asks whether his great-great grandfather stole their farm from the Aborigines. And what's that boring stuff about "genocide" on the news? The surprise ending is totally contrived, but the disturbing, fast-paced story, a prizewinner in Australia, makes clear the roles of perpetrator and bystander. When read with true survivors' accounts, this will be an excellent discussion title for the junior-high Holocaust curriculum. Hazel Rochman
