Making Bombs for Hitler
de Marsha Forchuk Skrypuch
No hi ha cap discussió a Converses sobre aquesta obra.
A solid and fast paced WWII book, focusing on the plight of Ukrainians who were captured by the Nazis and enslaved in work camps. Appealing for historical detail and engaging characters. I sometimes felt as if Lida was a little too generous and unselfish, but I can also see the joy that generosity gave her and how her kindness to others was a form of empowerment. ( )
The Book “Making Bombs for Hitler” by Marsha Forchuk Skrypuch was published in 2017. “Making Bombs for Hitler” is about a young girl named Lida, who was taken away from her grandmother along with her younger sister, Larissa, who is then also taken away from Lida, Lida then promises to find Larissa quickly but instead gets taken to a concentration camp where she has to earn her living by using her very precise hands to sew and earn the respect of the guards, then when Lida is recognized for her precise and delicate hands she is promoted to making bombs for the Germans, Lida and some of her friends try to sabotage a bomb, but end up blowing up the concentration camp. By the end of the book, Lida doesn’t get back with her sister. In my humble opinion, this book is great for people who are not independent or don’t know how to take care of themselves, after Lida is taken to the concentration camp she is forced to socialize with the kids already there and to get food and shelter the best way she can, to do this Lida wasn’t afraid of lying about her age to get the shelter and food she needed since the kids that didn’t answer their age truthfully would get shot, Lida also thought about the consequences of telling the truth and telling a lie, and determined which outweighed the other which showed she was capable of taking decisions herself without the help of an adult.
If I had to give a rating to this book, I would give it five stars.
Making Bombs for Hitler is my favorite Holocaust book. Lida has a younger sister and her mother was shot by the Nazi’s for hiding a Jew. Lida was taken from her grandmother's house to a concentration camp. There, Lida worked with a needle and thread. Then, a group of girls was taken to make bombs. There, she fills and helped the other girls there. Lida finds her sister, and they escape.
I love this time in history. I loved how they showed me what life was really like in a camp. Lida showed me how easy it was to enjoy little things in dark times. I love stories that show how hard it was to reunite with your family. Lida is my favorite character because there is not really a lot of characters in this book that's one of my favorite kind of books. I don’t understand why the author didn’t give a little back story. This is my favorite history book.
This book is about a girl named Lida. She was forced to make bombs for Hitler during world war 2. Lida was separated from her family. They realize she is a smart young girl and the military starts watching her closely. Lida does find a companion through this difficult time that helps her.
Great book used to teach history through the lens of fiction. This novel is meant to teach young readers the reality of World War II and the anxiety and horror that victims went through.
