For fifty years, Anna Schlemmer has refused to talk about her life in Germany during World War II. Her daughter, Trudy, was only three when she and her mother were liberated by an American soldier and went to live with him in Minnesota. Trudy's sole evidence of the past is an old photograph; a family portrait showing Anna, Trudy, and a Nazi officer, the Obersturmfuumlehrer of Buchenwald. Driven by the guilt of her heritage, Trudy, now a professor of German history, begins investigating the past and finally unearths the dramatic and heartbreaking truth of her mother's life. Combining a passionate, doomed love story, a vivid evocation of life during the war, and a poignant mother/daughter drama, Those Who Save Us is a profound exploration of what we endure to survive and the legacy of shame.… (mais)

Jenna Blum's THOSE WHO SAVE US (2004) is a completely absorbing novel that deals with the camps of the Holocaust on an extremely personal level, specifically Buchenwald. The two central characters are Anna and Trudy, a German mother and daughter, with the narrative shifting between the two, flashing back and forth from the 1940s, with Anna as a young mother in Weimar trying to keep her child safe during the war, to 1997, finding the now adult Trudy teaching German History at a university in Minneapolis, and Anna still keeping secrets about their wartime lives. There is, early on, a love story cut short, followed by a complex, brutal relationship with an SS officer until Buchenwald is liberated by the Americans, and Anna meets Jack, an American lieutenant of German descent, a farmer from Minnesota. The story is rich in aurhentic details and strong, well-defined characters. It's a book hard to put down. My highest recommendation.

Book about an Aryan mother's desperate battle to protect Jews, including the Jewish father of her daughter, the daughter, and her sanity in Weimar during the early 1940s. The other story line is in the late 1990s as the daughter desperately tries to understand her mother and parentage in the context of a study of women's roles in Nazi Germany. Depressing. ( )

A dense book covering a heavy subject; are all ordinary German citizens during the Third Reich willing collaborators or were they coerced into doing it?

The plot divides back and forth between Anna and her daughter Trudie. Anna's trauma is inadvertently passed onto Trudie who expresses it in other ways throughout her adult life without even realizing it. I enjoyed how both storylines go hand in hand. It's like watching cause and effect throughout the book.

The pace is slow, but it's not dull nor boring. There is lots of sympathy towards Anna and her ordeals. She's shielded Trudie from potential pain and has tried to make the best of it and giving her the most normal life she can possibly give. Her devotion is what keeps her going. You can feel Anna's detachment throughout the book, rightfully so considering what she had to go through to survive. Unfortunately what she did put her in a difficult position and others saw it as Anna being a collaborator.

At the end of the book though, everything is finally turned full circle and the way Blum closes the knots was well done. I wish it had turned out differently for Anna, especially when she goes to the US but it seems she'll be just fine. This is a good one for historical fiction fans. Keep in mind the subject matter may not be for everyone. ( )

Another devastating story about what women will do to survive in dire situations beyond their control, and the way in which others inevitably judge them. ( )

Is alles geoorloofd in oorlogstijd? Vijftig jaar lang heeft Anna Schlemmer geweigerd te praten over haar leven in Duitsland tijdens de Tweede Wereldoorlog. Anna's dochter Trudy herinnert zich niet veel: zij was nog maar vier toen zij en haar moeder door een Amerikaanse soldaat werden bevrijd en met hem meegingen naar Minnesota. Maar ze bezit één bewijsstuk uit het verleden: een familieportret waarop zijzelf staat, samen met haar moeder en een nazi-officier. Gedreven door schuldgevoel over wie haar voorouders zouden kunnen zijn, gaat Trudy op onderzoek uit. Ze slaagt erin om eindelijk de dramatische, hartverscheurende waarheid over haar moeders verleden boven tafel te krijgen. Het familieportret is een gepassioneerd maar gedoemd liefdesverhaal en een indringend portret van een moederdochterrelatie, dat de lezer nog lang zal bijblijven.
