The German Girl explores an interesting facet of WWII that I hadn’t read much on — the escape of German Jews to Cuba. Unfortunately, according to historical documentation, Jews were turned away from the country and refused entrance.
This novel is the story of Anna and Hannah. Yes, the writer chose to use some literary prowess and make the names of the two main characters similar. We get it, how clever.
Sadly, despite the fascinating subject, the writer does not do justice to the story. This is a historical fiction novel so naturally one can expect the writer to take liberties with their story telling. However, the novel in itself was boring and the characters were not likable in the slightest.
It seemed some of the main character met their ultimate demise in ways that were basically assumptions. I felt much was left up in the air. I struggled to finish this book.
Just pass it by.
