Description-

  • El programa eugenésico nazi Lebensborn, creado por Heinrich Himmler, fue puesto en marcha en 1933. Las mujeres que habían aprobado un estricto proceso de selección contactaban a un oficial SS para concebir a los representantes de la raza aria que «regenerarían » todos los territorios ocupados por el Reich. Fueron más de veinte mil niños los que nacieron durante el régimen de Hitler. Max, bautizado posteriormente por el Führer como Konrad von Kebnersol, es el primer y más perfecto ejemplar de Lebensborn. Desde pequeño conoce y admira las premisas del nacionalsocialismo, y con tan solo cuatro años es el actor esencial de la operación que secuestra a niños polacos «racialmente valiosos» para germanizarlos y convertirlos en alemanes perfectos como él. Pero su perspectiva cambia cuando conoce a un niño tan parecido que podría ser su hermano mayor: Lukas, polaco y judío, cuya familia ha muerto en un campo de concentración. Después de un sinfín de desencuentros, ambos deciden no separarse, salvar juntos su vida y cumplir la promesa de testificar, el primero por los nazis y el segundo por los judíos. Sin embargo, solo uno de ellos logrará el cometido. Estremecedora y controvertida novela-documental que registra no solo los pormenores del programa Lebensborn, sino también la formación de las Juventudes Hitlerianas; el rapto y adiestramiento de niños de la Europa ocupada; la labor de la unrra, organismo que ayudó a que los niños sobrevivientes regresaran con sus familias, y varios de los acontecimientos medulares de la Segunda Guerra Mundial.

  • Publisher's Weekly

    December 19, 2016
    French author Cohen-Scali’s U.S. debut chronicles the rise and fall of the Third Reich through the eyes of a child. Konrad von Kebnersol (dubbed Max by his birth mother) is a product of Lebensborn, a top-secret Nazi eugenics program designed to propagate the Aryan race. Baptized by Hitler and raised by the Nazi Party, Max serves as bait to aid in the kidnapping of Polish children, then enrolls at the Kalish school to facilitate the abductees’ Germanization. There, Max meets Lukas, an older boy to whom Max bears a striking resemblance. The two become like brothers, so it’s a shock to Max when Lukas confides that he’s Jewish. Unfortunately, Cohen-Scali’s plot relies too heavily on coincidence, and Max’s narration lacks nuance (even as a fetus, he narrates like a mustache-twirling villain); although Lukas’s relationship with Max forms the book’s emotional core, Cohen-Scali waits 200 pages to introduce him. The novel endeavors to teach an important lesson about the indoctrination and exploitation of German youth, but excessive exposition and an awkward structure muddy the message. Ages 15–up.
