Andres from Austria - Book Review

I received a very nice email by Andres from Austria that I would like to share with you.  He said:

“Cynthia A. Sandor brings history to life without sacrificing accuracy. She is significantly breaking new ground by chronicling the hidden history of the emotional toll that World War II exacted on the Bund Deutscher Mädel (BDM) girls who participated in the Landjahr Lager (Country Service Camp) program, and those who loved them.  I did not think there was anything good or fresh to say about the Hitler Youth to the modern world and Sandor has proven me wrong---very wrong indeed.  This is such an important and engaging piece of work that should become a valuable part of WWII history.  Thank you for writing “Through Innocent Eyes – The Chosen Girls of the Hitler Youth.”

The interest has been so great in Germany and Austria that I found a professional translator for "Through Innocent Eyes."  Found German Translator.

Marco from St. Polten, Austria said: 

"Dear Cindy: I just finished reading your book "Through Innocent Eyes - The Chosen Girls of the Hitler Youth" and I want to let you know that I liked reading your book because for me, (and for the other people living here for whom I told them about your book ) the historical circumstances, poverty and hardship, and the effects of the propaganda machinery are in part not new as a lot of facts came to my notice during history courses and especially the stories told by older generations living in this area. This is what made the book come alive for me. For me, you actually met the spirit of the people and of that time frame 1931 - 1941. This book is very valuable in that you documented the facets, not only of your mother and your family, but for many other JM and BDM girls, who today, are still alive and in their 80's. Those elderly women who live in Kleinzell still to this day, remember your mother's kindness and compassion and they are very happy to hear her story come to life in your book. I am so grateful that you added the general impression to a broad audience with your documentation, whereas the interesting stories told from many grandparents have vanished for consecutive generations as they are not narrated without interruption, nor were they documented such as your mothers. I wish you all the best of success on your book! Sincerely, Marco."
