The Wrong BoyA young Jewish pianist at Auschwitz desperate to save her family is chosen to play at the camp commandant's house How could she know she would fall in love with the wrong boyLook after each otherand get home safe And when you do tell everyone what you saw and what they did to usThese are Hanna's father's parting words to her and her sister when their famil Holocaust books always make me want to cry And yet I persist reading them Why Because they’re history Because history shouldn’t be forgotten Because terrible things have happened and shouldn’t ever happen again The author said this in her author’s note at the back “I don’t pretend to know how it felt to be imprisoned in Birkenau I don’t think anyone who wasn’t there can ever really understand But it’s important to try Reading history books and memoirs talking about the Holocaust and writing about it is the best way to stop it from happening again”The Wrong Boy is a beautifully written novel It’s filled with music and sadness and an accidental love It’s filled with the horrors of what happened to the millions of Jews that were imprisoned in war camps – not to “work” as everyone thought but to be killed It’s about Hanna who plays piano One day she would have been a famous pianist But Hitler destroyed her family her world her life This is her story The author has a clear voice While the voice of the novel isn’t bursting with extreme emotion the plot characters and dialogue come across with striking power and clarity The description is perfect – not too much not too little Of course being a pianist myself I love the musical angle I love how Hanna carried a C sharp note which she pried from her piano at home before being sent to the prison camp and her sister took photos and hid the film So people would know what Hilter did to them I love the strong family bond touches The author brought you into her world with a flick of a word and when Hanna sits at the piano in the Commandant’s house to play or die I can see her agony The novel is very historically correct The little details added in without huge emphasis really make this story It has so many layers – love horror war fear escape pride The themes are woven in and out without preaching or pointing fingers And the twists They’re perfect There are places to cry and laugh and sneer and screech and cringe and feel so overwrought with the horror of the Holocaust That saying the detail isn’t extreme It’s written simply but the description is definitely there gritty and horrible alright It’s just not written overpowering and grotesue The author managed to say so much by saying just a little That is a uality I stand in pure awe ofMy only uestion came in relation to the dialogue I'm all for historical books not being written in a dry no contractions anywhere very correct voice I don’t mind it but I do like the lighter relatable dialogue – mimicking though not extremely so how we speak today The Wrong Boy had a nice balance But there were times when I think the author veered too “modern” Erika Hanna’s older sister says “Screw you Hitler” And there are a few other references like that With the rest of the book being so historically sound I think that detracted from it The love story half is sad and sweet and doomed Not overdone Not underdone Karl the German Commandant’s son is every bit the gallant young man trapped by a father and people that he doesn’t agree with He sees everything He does everything While Hanna sees him as indifferent shy and moody at first everything changes when she realizes he cares about Jews He knows them by name He saves her life a few times when she makes some dire mistakes on the piano and gradually the start to fall in love It’s so sad Right from the beginning While this story didn’t leave me as haunted thank goodness as The Boy in the Striped Pajamas it is definitely a tale to be remembered Sad Sombre Sweet Cruel Truth

With a boy But then the Nazis came Now it is up to Hanna to do all she can to keep her mother and sister alive even if that means playing piano for the commandant and his guests Staying alive isn't supposed to include falling in love with the commandant's son But Karl Jager is beautiful and his aloofness belies a secret And war makes you do dangerous thing I feel rather deceived with that synopsis since the romance is everything but the theme of this book
