They are holding something that is absolutely forbidden in Auschwitz These items so dangerous that their mere possession is a death sentence cannot be fired nor do they have a sharp point a blade or a heavy end These items which the relentless guards of the Reich fear so much are nothing than books old unbound with missing pages and in tattersDita Adlerova is barely starting her teen years when WWII breaks out Originally from Prague Dita's family along with other Jewish families are forced to move to the Terezin ghetto While life in the ghetto is hardly perfect circumstance deals a bad hand to Dita when she is transferred to Auschwitz Birkenau concentration camp Placed in the uniuely special Block 31 where families are allowed to remain together Dita acuires a uniue title Librarian of the clandestine school Its a role that will sustain her uite literallyMy genre of choice is historical fiction specially that pertaining to WWII and the Holocaust This book fit the bill and then some as it also was an homage to books and their extensive reach Block 31 was uniue for it was a family camp where families where allowed to remain together While the parents were put to work the kids were sent to school The leader Fredy Hirsch was only supposed to entertain the kids He set up a clandestine school instead where he recruited teachers and set up a secret library That is where Dita came in she was tasked with protecting the books as they passed from teacher to teacher and was to hide them in Hirsch's office at the end of the day In Auschwitz this was uite dangerous work While I agree with other reviwers that the pace and flow of the book is not perfect that could have been lost in translation Antonio Iturbe originally published 'La Bibliotecaria de Auschwitz' in 2012 in Spain Overall I very much liked this book There are some issues but the content than makes up for it It was a powerful statement about the resilience of the human spiritDita Adlerova later Kraus is a real person At 14 years old she became the Librarian of Block 31 and she took her job very seriously She transported the books hidden in secret compartments under her dress In essence she was risking her life for books and some might not understand why it was worth it For that matter why even establish a school As its known now the only purpose of Block 31 was to try and fool the international communty that the Nazis were not killing the prisioners However when the Red Cross did not show up to inspect the camp the Nazis went ahead and dismantled it by killing 3000 people in a single blow Most of the kids perished Still I applaud that this school existed for it gave hope and even if it was fleeting these 500 kids got to experience some joy Dita did survive Auschwitz and later Bergen Belsen She married Ota Kraus who was one of the teachers of Block 31 Ota Kraus wrote 'The Painted Wall' which is about the clandestine school I plan on reading it at a later date What a impressive lady
