Eleanors Story: An American Girl in Hitlers Germany by Eleanor Ramrath Garner

Eleanors story is the dramatic autobiography of Eleanor Ramrath Garners youth, growing up as an American caught in World War II Berlin. Its a story of trying to maintain stability, hope, and identity in a world of terror and contrasts.During the Great Depression, when she is nine, Eleanors family moves from her beloved America to Germany, where her father has been offered a good job. But war breaks out as her family is crossing the Atlantic, and they cannot return to the United States.Eleanor tries to maintain her American identity as she feels herself pulled into the turbulent life roiling around her. She fervently hopes for an Allied victory, yet for years she must try to survive the Allied bombs shattering her neighborhood. Her family faces separations, bombings, hunger, the final fierce battle for Berlin, the Russian invasion, and the terrors of Soviet occupancy.This compelling story immerses us in the daily struggles of surviving World War II as a civilian. It puts a very human face on the horrors of war and helps us understand that each casualty of war is a person, not a number.
