If you ve just picked this one as your August Prime First Read then you are in for a treat eventually The first uarter of this book is slow really slow and I wondered if I d made a mistake in choosing it That said once it gets going it s as if it s a completely different bookTwo characters tell their stories directly Miriam and her father Henryk and a third tells hers via letters hidden inside the seams and pockets of an inmate s uniform from one of Germany s concentration camps The book opens in Berlin with one of the most important liberations of Germany s 20th Century the destruction of the Berlin wall and the eruption of Eastern Germans rushing into their divided city It s focus though is on the abuse and eventual liberations of the death camps at the end of the Second World War and the life of people in those camps under the administration of the Nazis Oppression of all sorts is to the fore throughout the book although we re just getting stuck into life under the Nazis both outside and inside the camps when we realise that the modern story of oppression is Miriam s domination by her husband Axel a classic case of what we now call coercive control The juxtaposition of the two forms of menace is very powerful As readers we can hope for nothing different from the past but we can continue to hope for some kind of redemption in the present tense of the bookMiriam finds an Auschwitz tattoo on her father s wrist under his watchband and he starts calling out for Frieda I nearly gave up at this point as I ve seen a lot of photos of Auschwitz tattoos and they were never neat little wrist tattoos More typically they were sprawling characters on the outer or inner forearm This had me doubting the likely veracity of the rest of the book but once things got moving I soon forgot The point of the revelation of the tattoo is that we re supposed to believe that Henryk NEVER told his daughter that he d been in the camp He wasn t a Jew or a gypsy so Miriam wonders why he was there As readers we know because we re reading Henryk s thoughts about Frieda the girl he loved and for whom he risked his marriage and lost his careerEnlisting the help of an elderly woman called Eva Miriam gets her to translate the letters she finds in the dress which have been written in French Oddly the book presents all of these letters both the French and German ones in chronological order which seemed rather convenient to me Clearly Eva is controlling the release of the information to Miriam and to the rest of usMeanwhile as Miriam learns about the woman her father once loved she s trying to escape from the man she no longer loves her husband and abuser Axel He s a controlling and violent man who has built a network of lies to support the image of his wife as weak insane and unable to look after herself Can learning of the courage of others so many years before help Miriam to find her own courage to say No to AxelNot everything rings true the watchstrap incident in particular and I had a lot of doubts about how the dress came to be in Henryk s possession with the letters still hidden after 45 years The ending ties everything together very nicely though and is very well done One thing I don t agree with at all is the positioning of the book via the blurb and the title as being about the rabbit girls of the concentration camps These women were experimented upon by doctors in the camps who gave them less respect or care than a vivisection rabbit And yet from the point of view of the story they are a really tiny aspect of a much broader discussion Anybody with a morbid interest in the abuse of inmates in that way should probably find another book and I consider it a shame that the book is being promoted in this way Perhaps we re supposed to view Miriam as a rabbit girl in her own right abused by her husband for 20 years but I suspect I m attempting to force fit a title to a book It s a love story and a story of somebody finding her strength to fight back with the help of an unexpected friend just as her father s once lover finds the strength to survive in the camps through the comradeship of other women Once I d got through the first 25 30% of the book I found it really interesting and put everything else on hold to get the book finished Catholic Social Teaching reveal the disturbing truth about the ‘Rabbit Girls’ young women experimented on at the camp And amid thei. If you ve just picked this one as your August Prime First Read then you are in for a treat eventually The first uarter of this book is slow Island of Fear and Other Science Fiction Stories really slow and I wondered if I d made a mistake in choosing it That said once it gets going it s as if it s a completely different bookTwo characters tell their stories directly Miriam and her father Henryk and a third tells hers via letters hidden inside the seams and pockets of an inmate s uniform from one of Germany s concentration camps The book opens in Berlin with one of the most important liberations of Germany s 20th Century the destruction of the Berlin wall and the eruption of Eastern Germans Final Warning The Legacy of Chernobyl rushing into their divided city It s focus though is on the abuse and eventual liberations of the death camps at the end of the Second World War and the life of people in those camps under the administration of the Nazis Oppression of all sorts is to the fore throughout the book although we Hedge Witch re just getting stuck into life under the Nazis both outside and inside the camps when we The Eagle the Nightingales Bardic Voices #3 realise that the modern story of oppression is Miriam s domination by her husband Axel a classic case of what we now call coercive control The juxtaposition of the two forms of menace is very powerful As MT 86 : Protocole Montréal-Toulouse d'examen linguistique de l'aphasie (1CD audio) readers we can hope for nothing different from the past but we can continue to hope for some kind of Thesaurus of the Senses redemption in the present tense of the bookMiriam finds an Auschwitz tattoo on her father s wrist under his watchband and he starts calling out for Frieda I nearly gave up at this point as I ve seen a lot of photos of Auschwitz tattoos and they were never neat little wrist tattoos More typically they were sprawling characters on the outer or inner forearm This had me doubting the likely veracity of the The Couette and the Boarding School rest of the book but once things got moving I soon forgot The point of the Imagimorphia revelation of the tattoo is that we The Book of Beginnings It's Just Us Here re supposed to believe that Henryk NEVER told his daughter that he d been in the camp He wasn t a Jew or a gypsy so Miriam wonders why he was there As The Homelanders The Homelanders #1 4 readers we know because we Burning Attraction re The Numbers Game Baseball's Lifelong Fascination with Statistics reading Henryk s thoughts about Frieda the girl he loved and for whom he Tall Man Riding risked his marriage and lost his careerEnlisting the help of an elderly woman called Eva Miriam gets her to translate the letters she finds in the dress which have been written in French Oddly the book presents all of these letters both the French and German ones in chronological order which seemed The 7 Components of Transformative Organizing Theory rather convenient to me Clearly Eva is controlling the Wild Man Creek release of the information to Miriam and to the Tremors of Fury The Days of Ash and Fury #2 rest of usMeanwhile as Miriam learns about the woman her father once loved she s trying to escape from the man she no longer loves her husband and abuser Axel He s a controlling and violent man who has built a network of lies to support the image of his wife as weak insane and unable to look after herself Can learning of the courage of others so many years before help Miriam to find her own courage to say No to AxelNot everything Illustrated Workbook for Self Therapy for Your Inner Critic rings true the watchstrap incident in particular and I had a lot of doubts about how the dress came to be in Henryk s possession with the letters still hidden after 45 years The ending ties everything together very nicely though and is very well done One thing I don t agree with at all is the positioning of the book via the blurb and the title as being about the Earthfall rabbit girls of the concentration camps These women were experimented upon by doctors in the camps who gave them less A daddy for Christmas respect or care than a vivisection Banned in Britain rabbit And yet from the point of view of the story they are a Hour of the Beast really tiny aspect of a much broader discussion Anybody with a morbid interest in the abuse of inmates in that way should probably find another book and I consider it a shame that the book is being promoted in this way Perhaps we Dictionary Of Dreams re supposed to view Miriam as a The Love of a Latino rabbit girl in her own Other Days Other Eyes right abused by her husband for 20 years but I suspect I m attempting to force fit a title to a book It s a love story and a story of somebody finding her strength to fight back with the help of an unexpected friend just as her father s once lover finds the strength to survive in the camps through the comradeship of other women Once I d got through the first 25 30% of the book I found it Deception Island really interesting and put everything else on hold to get the book finished
