Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Gretchen is Adolf Hitler's good little niece--she listens and believes everything he has to say, and loves when he treats her as a favorite. But things start to change when she witnesses her brother beating up a Jewish man for no reason. Her brother is becoming increasingly violent and scary, all with uncle's blessing. After befriending a young Jewish boy who says he will help Gretchen discover the truth about her father's death, she rebels against everything she has been taught.
Unbelievable at times, yes, but still an interesting look into Hitler's inner circle during his rise to power in Munich. I appreciated the author's note that told me what characters were fictional.
