    A Beautiful Book

    This is truly a beautiful book. Each of the four coauthors, Jewish girls growing up in Berlin during the thirties, relates her life under the Third Reich until they were able to leave for England in the summer of 1939.Their moving accounts are well written, and the volume as a whole is extremely well edited. The reader will learn many curious aspects of life in that period, and the many details in the circumstantial accounts will make him feel as if he were viewing the action taking place before his eyes. This book made a great impression on me, and I recommend it to anyone who would appreciate learning about an aspect of the Holocaust not so vividly discussed elsewhere.

    1930's Germany comes alive in 'and Then There Were Four'

    The four authors - Ellen Stein, Marcelle Robinson, Daisy Roessler, and Lisa Klein ¿ have put their unusual stories and good writing style to print. Sometimes true stories are more fascinating than fiction! The combination of memoirs by these four friends, all of whom grew up in Berlin during the 1930s, bring to life what Germany was like for middle-class Jewish families at the beginning of the Nazi-Era in 1933, before and after the advent of Hitler. Each author also describes what it felt like to live in England during the war, and what adventures were experienced subsequently. Ellen Stein¿s detailed narrative includes a description of pre-supermarket shopping in Berlin: getting the main ingredient for gefillte fish at a fishmonger, buying a chicken at the Jewish butcher, and selecting items at the greengrocer to flavor the chicken soup. Marcelle Robinson describes going to art school in England as a teenager, where young models for Life Drawing class were difficult to obtain due to the war. (Ellen Stein was also a student at this school at that time). Daisy Roessler recounts what it felt like to make sure all windows were covered and lights out during a German air bombardment in London, and that when there was a full moon no attacks were likely. (Ellen Stein and Daisy Roessler were friends since age 6 in Berlin). Lisa Klein tells of immigrating to Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic, watching waterfront activities such as loading of local produce and live cattle, and dealing with mosquitoes, ants, and cockroaches. (Ellen Stein and Lisa Klein, former classmates in 1938/39, met again in 2000 on a flight from New York to Berlin). Reviewed by George Fairbrook, Stockton, CA, USA

    A real-life page turner!

    An amazing story of endurance, perseverence, hope and triumph. I could not put the book down. You will laugh and cry as you go along with these four girls in their struggle to survive and thrive as a result.
