Storyline

In battle-scarred Germany of 1943, a 12-year-old bright-eyed boy, member of the Hitler Youth Organisation, breaks into a ransacked Jewish tailor shop, only to discover, unexpectedly, a petrified Jewish girl hiding. Obviously, she is the enemy, while he is his country's rightful heir. And still, they are standing face-to-face: two youngsters who are worlds apart with nothing in common, yet perhaps this isn't exactly true. Written by Nick Riganas

A bridge between the past and the present
27 July 2016 | by risya-20218See all my reviews

There are three boy soldiers, and one of them discovers a girl, who wears a cloth with a yellow star. She has a unicorn and gives it to him. Then German soldiers came to the room. He misses an escaped her. He gives the unicorn to the German soldiers and is hit. The boy with a box sees the girl again when they become old.

This story describes the dark history of the past. But there is the kind heart of the boy. It makes this story heartwarming. And is it shows all of German weren't heartless in the dark ears and that some of them especially children like the boy has kind hearts. Also the unicorn is a key point in this story. Because it connects the boy with the girl and is a bridge between the past and the present. So this is the story about not only Nazi Germany but also romance.
