About this deal

and there was a period when i thought, "hey - these girls finally have it together and are taking real steps towards their own survival," only to modify that somewhat later to, "oh, these characters are making decisions that will have literary appeal and dramatic heft.

After liberation the Rabinowitz family’s wish is to get to Palestine. They begin an arduous journey as refugees through the Alps leaving them in Italy with dreams of Palestine fading to nil. In the end the family is able to make their way to the USA through family members who fled Poland before the war. J'ai adoré la simplicité et l'intensité de l'écriture. Il était agréable de lire un roman évoquant la fin du monde en abordant un motif réaliste. Le plus étonnant dans cette lecture, il a été écrit en 1996 !! Il reste terriblement d'actualité, pire, il se pourrait qu'il prenne des airs prémonitoires !Set in one of the world's last remaining primeval forests, this story of horror and heroism has the trappings of a grim fairy tale: Once upon a terrible time, after so much loss and devastation, one unlikely couple found their happily ever after."

Into the Forest can be seen not only as a coming of age story but as a very relevant book as far as the economic crisis is concerned. This is a plausible event which could happen, especially in today’s eerily similar circumstances. The book was written in 1998 almost as if the author could sense what was to come. The book succeeded in making me cringe with fear and foreboding! Reminiscent of Margaret Atwood's A Handmaid's Tale, Into the Forest is a mesmerizing and thought-provoking novel of hope and despair set in a frighteningly plausible near-future America. By the start of 1944, the 150,000 Russian partisans had taken control of the forests and the Soviet army began its march toward Berlin. The Jews who lived in the forest had to navigate being caught between the surging Russian forces and the retreating Germans. By September of 1944, the Rabinowitz’s and others were told by the Christian farmers that the Germans were gone, and they soon walked for weeks to return to the village of Zhetel which they found was occupied by the Soviet army and their homes and possessions gone. What are the chances that a woman who chooses to save a young boy from certain death by momentarily pretending he is her son, would in a chance encounter reconnect with him many years later on another continent? What are the chances this unexpected reunion would then lead to him becoming her son-in-law by virtue of him falling in love with and marrying her daughter? Into the Forest is one family's story of survival during the Holocaust, and is an intimate look at the Holocaust along the Eastern front. The Rabinowitz family- father Morris, mother Miriam, and two little girls, lived in Zhetel with their extended family. Now located in Belarus, the town was occupied by the Soviets during the first years of the war. When the Nazis marched into town in 1941, the Jews of Zhetel and the nearby villages were placed in a ghetto. Unlike the Holocaust of Western Europe and parts of Poland occupied by the Nazis prior to 1941, there were no deportations from Zhetel to camps. Instead, the Nazis would periodically hold selections and take everyone they deemed unnecessary to a mass grave to shoot them. Knowing that escape was their only option to live, the family flees into the forest of Belarus.To take his mind off the loneliness, the boy’s mother asks him to take a basket of goodies to his grandmother’s house. She tells him to go the long way round to avoid the forest. But the boy plans to ignore this advice for the first time ever, in case his father comes home early. Big Struggle At two months without power, the girls are low on food. They get by using the skills their father taught them, though they miss the creature comforts they used to enjoy. For example, Eva must dance to a metronome since she can no longer dance to music. What kind of childhood do you think Eva’s baby will have? If technology and society were to return to advanced states, how might the child adapt to leaving the forest?
