    Сбогом Шанхай doc  reader HardcoverFree ò Angel Wagenstein Сбогом ШанхайWhen I was in my teens I began reading books on the holocaust Most of them had pictures taken by soldiers who liberated the camps These pictures showed the survivors skin and bones many times naked and because of this it would have been difficult to identify a member of your family because by this time they all looked similar I was horrified but I couldn't cry It was not until I read another book on Auschwitz which had in it a picture of a middle aged woman dressed in her best and holding the hand of her young son who carried a handkerchief with all his best things that I began to cry because I knew by then that within minutes of their arrival they both would have been taken to the gas chamber The nazi's had no use for children nor women who would fight to protect their children For years I thought that the Jewish refugees who could make it to Shanghai were lucky since they were acce

    Сбогом Шанхай doc  reader HardcoverFree ò Angel Wagenstein Сбогом ШанхайI have been all over the map with this book First of all particularly in the first half of the book I found the writing confusing Here is an example of what you will have to contend with The days and months flowed by heavily and monotonously with no news from Elisabeth in contrast to normal prisons with legal regulations here correspondence was forbidden and the hour long morning and evening roll calls always with the small three times cursed pastry shop and the constantly perfected art of not stirring up in Hansi Steinbrenner the desire

    Сбогом Шанхай doc  reader HardcoverFree ò Angel Wagenstein Сбогом ШанхайAlthough the book was slow at first I found the book moving us through this historical period as if we were there it allowed us to experience the lives of several individuals as they experienced the war Moreover the author has done a remarkable job of bringing to life historical fact about the Holocaust that is often overlooked I liked this book

    Сбогом Шанхай doc  reader HardcoverFree ò Angel Wagenstein Сбогом ШанхайA marvelously written and translated novel of Shanghai and the Jewish colony there The professional reviewers state very well how wonderful this novel truly is And evidently it was translated from Bulgarian into French and then from French into English This expert translation process speaks as well of the translators' skills as of the author'sIf you’ve read this book buy his newer book “Isaac’s Torah” Fabulous book

    Сбогом Шанхай doc  reader HardcoverFree ò Angel Wagenstein Сбогом ШанхайI really wanted to love this novel BUTIt was mostly non fiction with a tiny bit of novel Much of that was based upon real people and as fictional characters they were poorly developed How much better it would have been if the author had written a straight non fiction book I chose this book because the subject was totally new to me and I thought I would learn something The book was mostly fact but much of that material was added to flesh out the novel so it was not as cohesive as it could and should have been In other words way too much

    Сбогом Шанхай doc  reader HardcoverFree ò Angel Wagenstein Сбогом ШанхайKnowing someone who lived in Shanghai during WWII and having read at least one other book about Jewish refugees there I expected better things from this bookI was initially impressed with the style of the writing and it proved to be a relatively uick read but ultimately I didn't find it a satisfying story The characters were not convincing or well developed and by jumping right into the action and keeping thi

    Сбогом Шанхай doc  reader HardcoverFree ò Angel Wagenstein Сбогом ШанхайI could not finish this execrable book The plot is a mish mash of bad WWII movie cliches the hot blonde Jewess the Vichy Paris the bad sex the hidden identities Every page seems as if it's written to be translated to the screen but it's so disjointed the characters make no sense and so it feels like a regurgitation of images

    Сбогом Шанхай doc  reader HardcoverFree ò Angel Wagenstein Сбогом ШанхайChose this from my China shelf Hopefully it will set the stage for my trip to China this summer I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this I thought I was satiated with WWII novels but the setting for this one moves from Paris to Shanghai and deals with a situation I was not very familiar with Shanghai was a free international city during the early years of the war Wagenstein's treatment of the class distinctions between the resident Jews and refugees was intruiging The dilemmas and conflicts of this international city occupied by the Japanese were clearly laid out The love story gave the book continuity and flow And I had my Shanghai map out the whole time
