Her father is a Waffer SS member, her mother intending to enjoy life in Germanys new Reich. We leave her in 1949 when she is ten years old. Hitlers gruesome war rages during these years and is followed by a time of immeasurable grief endured by perpetrators, the wilfully blind, the acceptors and liberators alike.But because the focus of the novel is entirely on the girl , rather than the world conflict , there is no distance between her and us. Her helpless suffering is all the more touching as her young mind cannot comprehend what is going on around her.
