Overview

Hitler's Daughter / Edition 1

Her name was Heidi, and she was Hitler's daughter.

It began on a rainy morning in Australia, as part of a game played by Mark and his friends. It was a storytelling game, and the four friends took turns weaving tales about fairies and mermaids and horses. But Anna's story was different this time: It was not a fairy tale or an adventure story. The story was about a young girl who lived during World War II. Her name was Heidi, and she was Hitler's daughter.

As Anna's story unfolds, Mark is haunted by the image of Hitler's daughter. He wonders what he would have done in her place if he had known his father was an evil man leading the world into a war that was destroying millions of lives. And if Mark had known, would he have had the power and determination to stop him?

This intriguing novel poses powerful questions about a frightening period in history and will force readers to examine moral issues in a fresh, compelling light.

I've read a lot of books in my life, and this one is the most dull, slow-moving, get-it-over-with book I've ever read. The only interesting parts about it were the stories of Hitler's daughter, and those took up only half the book. The other half was about the main character pondering the story, wondering what it would be like to be Hitler's daughter, going through uneventful details about his life that, etc. I just wanted to skip over it all and get to the stories about Hitler's daughter, which weren't even that exciting. I am not easily bored by a book, and this one pretty much put me to sleep.

While the story overall was alright, it was boring. If another author did the same book it probably would have been better. The book had great potential to be very full and rich with information and detail, but instead it was extremely simple and felt like it was mostly written without any emotion at all. In short, very lacking of painting visual pictures, too simple, wasted potential.

I read this book a while ago, but I still remember how intreging it was. Normally, I don't read a book that is this simple to read but the title got my atention. A very well, written book about a child of Hitler's. One of the better books I've read and I read a lot of books!

 Hitler's Daughter. This is the next new story about her, Hitler's Daughter is an really old story line. Back to World War II. Pictures of Hitler with a little girl, some people beleave her was his daughter. He said that he would like to have a daughter. A son would never be able to reach his glory. With that statement, books about the daughter of Hitler started showing up. I have read two books under the same name. And I have seen the movie yers ago, maybe back in 1983. I'm looking forword of reading this one and a new one that just came.
