BC: The book I read was called "The man from the other side". It takes place during World War II, when the Nazi's took over Poland. The main Character's name is Merek and he's 14 years old as an outsider. He doesn't know who his real father is because he died while fighting for Jewish rights to the Germans. In the beginning of the book, he doesn't know much about the ghettos. This was a place on where the Nazi's would keep all Jews. Merek has a mission with his step father, Antony, sneak in food into the sewers. On his mission Merek finds out the truth about the Jews and how they aren't different from any other people. He knows what the Nazi Germans are doing and wants help stop the invasion. Later on Merek was walking the streets at night when he herd the Germans marching, he hide in a nearby bush and finds out that theres a Jew next to him. His name was Pan Jozek, soon after they became friends, and Merek wants to help hiding him. There are some bumps on the road, like where is he going to live and how long until he every knows he's a Jew? Pan Jozek moved in with Pan Korek, a family friend who is hiding Jews inside his apartment upstairs from a bar. This turned out out to become a hug problem. Pan Szcopak, a Polish police that became a German officer, goes in to the bar for drinks and is suspicious that Jews are living upstairs. Pan Jozek has moved into Merek's grandparents house. This was a great move until the Germans were knocking on doors to doors asking neighbors if their keeping Jews inside. It was a close one, but Pan Jozek didn't get caught. The Germans later on packed up and brought hundreds of Jews onto a train were they would be shipped to a camp, called The Holocaust.
FC: The man from the other side
1: Germans in Poland are persecuted with a bloody terror and are driven from their homes. The series of border violations, which are unbearable to a great power, prove that the Poles no longer are willing to respect the German frontier. In order to put an end to this frantic activity no other means is left to me now than to meet force with force.
2: The Main Character, Marek, a 14 year old boy who is living at the time when German's invaded Poland.
