Description

 

See below for English description.

Alors qu’elle a été volée à sa famille par les nazis, Nadia essaie de donner un sens à ses souvenirs confus et à ses cauchemars. Peu à peu, elle découvre la vérité : la famille allemande au sein de laquelle elle a grandi et celle qu’elle appelait sa mère ne sont pas vraiment qui elle croyait. Mais où est sa famille à présent et qu’est devenue sa mère? Enfin, quel est son vrai nom? Cette histoire d’une fillette kidnappée par des nazis obnubilés à l’idée de créer une « race supérieure » et placée dans un Lebensborn à cause de son physique « aryen », révèle la détermination d’une enfant à découvrir son passé.

 

Stolen from her family by the Nazis, Nadia is a young girl who tries to make sense of her confusing memories and haunting dreams. Bit by bit, she starts to uncover the truth: that the German family she grew up with, the woman who calls herself Nadia's mother, are not who they say they are. Piece by piece, Nadia comes to realize who her real family was. But where are they now? What became of them? And what is her real name?

This story of a Lebensborn girl — a child kidnapped for her "Aryan looks" by the Nazis in their frenzy to build a master race — reveals one child's fierce determination to uncover her past against incredible odds.

Original title: Stolen Girl
