Trailer ¾ Sarah's Key PDF by ¹ Tatiana de Rosnay I was intrigued by the plot for this book A young girl locks her brother in a cupboard at their apartment in Paris before the Police, at the behest of the Nazi s, take away her and her family They wait for several days in a detention center, in conditions like the Superdome, before being sent to camps in Southern France, and we wonder if she will retrieve her little brother before he dies or starves or hopefully, is rescued Unfortunately, another storyline involving a two dimensional American woman whining about her insensetive French husband comes in every other chapter and the mediocre writing makes what could have been an interesting story less than satisfying.
spoilers Lots of spoilers Don t read this disclaimer This is a review of the book, Sarah s Key, and not the Holocaust I give the Holocaust negative infinity stars, if you were wondering Fuck you Sarah s Key, you manipulative sonofabitching asshole How dare you make me feel like this at Christmas Dead baby brother in a cupboard Really Gassing the parents at Auschwitz wasn t enough I don t give a goddamn what you throw at me for the rest of the story I WILL NOT CRY AFTER THAT BULLSHIT I know that s all you want and you re not going to get it Not from me.

life Snore This story could only have been written by a French person because anyone else could, and possibly would, be seen as casting stones Fortunately, Tatiana de Rosnay is a French citizen and her bravery is outstanding as she brings to light the heartbreaking historical story that runs underneath the fictional story like a dark, terrifying catacomb below the streets of ParisOn July 16 and 17, 1942, 13,152 Jews were arrested in Paris and the suburbs, deported and assassinated at Auschwitz In the V ledrome d Hiver that once stood on this spot, 1,129 men, 2,916 women, and 4,115 children

plaque near where the original V ledrome d Hiver nicknamed the Vel I finished Sarah s Key this morning and I have so many thoughts going through my head about it I loved the pacing of the story, how it switched between Sarah s story and Julia s story up until the point where the two merged I loved how the style of Sarah s story was completely different than the style of Julia s story I loved how both stories made me cry, even though I knew what was coming I loved how realistically the characters were portrayed Nobody was all good or all bad, just human with human frailties I loved the depictions of the small acts of conscience and kindness I had no idea about the roundups of Jews in France I did know that the Nazis tended to just send children who were too young to work straight to the gas chambers I think the author did a good job of illustrating why the French people se October 2009 re reading this book again for another book club I hope I like it better than the 1st time but so far I m not seeing it Why would she use a word like ingurgitating when you can say ate That kind of writing irritates me a lot The true story is heartbreaking, and very interesting, but her writing just doesn t impress me as expressing the true horrors experienced by the deported Jews, or any real feeling for Julia s anger at her husband disdainful treatment of her Spring 2009 Predictable story, pedestrian predictable writing None of the plot surprises were surprising I felt I wasted my time on this book selected for a book club I belong to Paris, July Ten Year Old Sarah Is Brutally Arrested

Begins To Question Her Own Place In France And To Reevaluate Her Marriage And Her LifeWriting About The Fate Of Her Country With A Pitiless Clarity, Tatiana De Rosnay Offers Us A Brilliantly Subtle, Compelling Portrait Of France Under Occupation And Reveals The Taboos And Denial Surrounding This Painful Episode In French History Front Flap I agree with Katie on this one I did not enjoy this book It tells two stories one, about a young French girl whose family is rounded up and taken away during the Holocaust, and the other about a modern day journalist who is tracking down her story Julia, the contemporary narrator, was self obsessed, clueless and downright annoying I couldn t stand her husband, or even her perfect little kid, for that matter It made it hard to root for them because they were just so unlikeable The premise behind Sarah s story was good, but her character was so underdeveloped that I didn t feel emotionally invested in her story at all I wanted to feel something, because it was a Holocaust story, for crying out loud, but maybe once you ve read The Book Thief, everything else pales in comparison Plus, rather than showing the horrible conditions Sarah went through and letti 3 1 2 starsThis author grew up in France and was never taught at school about the French complicity in rounding up Jews for the Nazis When she discovered information about the Vel D Hiv roundup, she knew she had to write about it The book is her tribute to the 4,000 children who were victims of that roundup I cried for these little people They were robbed of their chance at life before it ever really got started Bad enough that they were killed, but before that, they were left in the French camp without their parents Some of these kids were toddlers, left there with no one to comfort them and no understanding of what was happening The least we can do is to know their story and remember them.
I felt like the Vel D Hiv story was diluted by the current day drama of Jul 3.
5 stars This is a dual timeline historical fiction novel, about the arrests of Jewish families in France during WWII and their terrible experiences, focusing on the actual historic Vel d Hiv roundup in July 1942, and a modern journalist s investigation of that event and her search for some of the people involved The inside of the V lodrome d Hiver bicycle stadium, demolished in 1959In the 1942 timeline, in Paris a 10 year old girl is arrested with her Polish mother and father in the middle of the night Her 3 or 4 year old brother, terrified, hides himself in their secret hiding place, a hidden cupboard Sarah locks him in, assuring him that she ll be back in a few hours Instead her family is taken to the V lodrome d Hiver, a bicycle stadium, where they and thousands of other Jewish families, including many children, were held
