Description
"En 1936 para el quinceañero Stephan Neuman los nazis no son más que unos brutos algo más que ruidosos. Stephan forma parte de una infl uyente familia judía de Viena y es un incipiente dramaturgo cuyos escenarios son calles de la capital austriaca e incluso sus intrincadas alcantarillas. Su mejor amiga es Zofi e-Helene, una chica cristiana cuya madre es la editora de un periódico antinazi. Pero la inocencia libre de preocupaciones de ambos adolescentes se verá rota en pedazos cuando los nazis toman el control. Pero hay esperanza en la oscuridad. Truss Wijsmuller, miembro de la resistencia de origen holandés, arriesga continuamente su vida para pasar de contrabando niños judíos fuera de la órbita nazi hacia países dispuestos a acogerlos. Una misión que se hace aún más complicada cuando Alemania se apodera de Austria, el Anschluss, ya que por toda Europa los países cierran sus fronteras ante el creciente número de refugiados desesperados. La tía Truss, como es conocida, está decidida a salvar a tantos niños como sea capaz. Cuando Gran Bretaña decide acoger cierto número de refugiados, deberá atreverse a acercarse a Adolf Eichmann, el hombre que años después estará detrás de la Solución Final, en una carrera contra reloj para salvar a la mayor cantidad posible de niños como Stephan, su hermano menor Walter y Helene, y para ello deberán emprender un viaje peligroso hacia un destino desconocido en el extranjero." --,Amazon.
Description
"In 1936 for the fifteen-year-old Stephan Neuman the Nazis are nothing more than brutes, something more than noisy. Stephan is part of an influential Jewish family in Vienna and a fledgling playwright whose settings are the streets of the Austrian capital and even its intricate sewers. Her best friend is Zofi e-Helene, a Christian girl whose mother is the editor of an anti-Nazi newspaper. But the carefree innocence of both teens will be shattered when the Nazis take over. But there is hope in the dark. Truss Wijsmuller, a member of the resistance of Dutch origin, continually risks his life to smuggle Jewish children out of the Nazi orbit into countries willing to take them in. A mission that becomes even more complicated when Germany takes over Austria, the Anschluss, as countries across Europe close their borders to the growing number of desperate refugees. Aunt Truss, as she is known, is determined to save as many children as she can. When Great Britain decides to host a certain number of refugees, it must dare to approach Adolf Eichmann, the man who years later will be behind the Final Solution, in a race against the clock to save as many children as possible like Stephan, his younger brother, Walter, and Helene, and for this they must undertake a dangerous journey to an unknown destination abroad.
