com User, January 26, 1999. Mischling, Second Degree: My Childhood in Nazi Germany was an excellent book

com User, January 26, 1999. Mischling, Second Degree: My Childhood in Nazi Germany was an excellent book. There are a couple problems such as the situations inflicted on the people were not explained because the book was written by a child who did not understand or was aloud to hear what was going on. The ending was very weak because it was predictable and didn't explain what had happened to the father.

This book provides insight into German culture and humanizes the German people. I can't describe how deeply Ms. Koehn's experience as a child in Nazi Germany impacted me. Thirty-two-years later, I still remember it so well. It shows that they were motivated by the same kinds of fears, hopes and false rationalizations that we all face. I'm about to purchase it for my thirteen-year-old who's studying World War II.

This is an exceptional book. I recommend anyone interested in what life was like under Hitler read this. The one thing you need to keep in mind is that this story could have been written by any German girl. What happens in the book has very little to do with Ilsa Koehn being Jewish. She didn't know she was Jewish, she only knew both sides of her family (one Jewish, the other non-Jewish) were against Hitler. She lived with her non-Jewish grandparents.

This is a young adult book, but that really doesn't matter. The bombing raid in the back of the book is well written and gives you a very good idea of what going through one might have been like. When she was hiding from the Russians to keep from being raped, she only tells you what she heard, which lets your imagination run wild.

Well written. Highly recommended.

This is a wonderful story about a girl's life in WW2 Germany. The story is gripping and yet suitable for children. I read this book as a kid and recently purchased it for my own daughter.

I discovered a fresh perspective on life for ordinary people in Germany during and immediately after WWII in this autobiographical account of a teenaged girl who is one quarter Jewish. Clearly written, yet full of personalities. Eye-opening.

This book is powerful. At any age. It is one of the books from my childhood that made me realized how others in the world struggle and survive. And have feelings and hopes and fears. Can't recommend this enough.

Well written and engaging, this is the story of Ilse, a German girl during World War II. Although her parents do not believe in the Nazi rhetoric, they are forced to "play along" to survive. Ilse, the youngest member of the family, does not know that her grandmother is Jewish, making her a Mischling, second degree, and subject to deportation to a concentration camp. Her family does everything to protect her, even having her join the Hitler Youth.

Most books about World War II are written from the perspective of the Jews, or other victims of the Nazi's. This book provides insight into German culture and humanizes the German people. It shows that they were motivated by the same kinds of fears, hopes and false rationalizations that we all face.

I knew Ilse Koehn when she was writing this book. She always spoke with such love for her father, while never explaining why. Now I understand. I've read her book and taught it in middle school; not because we were friends, but because this age group can relate to all the emotions Ilse expresses in so many aspects of an "outsider/survivor" child during World War II. Young adults today must cope with life as it moves on, just like Ilse, who faced a life which often made no sense.

As an adult she writes her memoir. Did the girl, Ilse, understand? Or does Ilse, the mature woman,understand the events which effected her existance? Does the passge of time give us a clearer vision?

My students look at Ilse's life and writing this way. Ilse Koehn's book makes them think. Ilse's writing helps many students find understanding.

I must admit, I have not read this book for many years, in fact, not since I was in the third grade. A rather insightful teacher assigned me this book, and it has profoundly enriched my understanding of the holocaust, evil, and human nature, by allowing me to see a humanized portrait of NAZI society at a very early age. As I have been raised Jewish, I have been nearly bombarded with information about the holocaust from a Jewish perspective (not that I regret this). However, I feel that we can only come to understand such a great evil if we understand that its perpetrators were as human as its victims, motivated by the same kinds of fears, hopes, false rationalizations, etc. that in some small way motivate every human being from time to time. This book is an excellent way to introduce this humanizing element to a young reader, and it helps to make sense of a senseless event in our history.
I happened to come across this book in my junior high's school library. I can't describe how deeply Ms. Koehn's experience as a child in Nazi Germany impacted me. Thirty-two-years later, I still remember it so well. I'm about to purchase it for my thirteen-year-old who's studying World War II. I know it'll affect her the way it had affected me. If you haven't read Ms. Koehn's story, "Anne Frank on the other side of the fence" (I still remember the tagline on the edition I had read), I'd highly recommend you click that buy button.
