My Story: The Storm to Come
You will be chilled… This on-the-spot vision of the unfolding of the Holocaust was written as it happened by a man who saw the Nazis rise. Yesterday, everything was normal. Today, they’ve taken your parents. Even your school isn’t safe. Who can you trust? As the Holocaust turns from a brutal plan into a living nightmare, two boys in Vienna – one German, one Jewish – find themselves trapped in a real-life hell. First published in 1940, at the very beginning of the Second World War, this extraordinary book chillingly predicts the terror of the storm to come.
“I feel as if I am in Vienna in 1940 watching the impossible unfold.” Meg Rosoff
