    It should never be forgottenBy Sol TetelbaumReview Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay Almost a hundred readers published their reviews on Tatiana de Rosnay’s novel Sarah’s Key Most of them rated the book in four or five stars but some of them calling the novel “mediocre” showed a lower rating – three stars It is necessary to admit that their opinions weren’t unfounded and most critical comments were fair However from my standpoint despite the fair critical comments I don’t think it is necessary to list them the novel deserves a rather high rating and I will try to explain why The book is devoted to the Holocaust The author describes two stories One story is about the tragedy of a Jewish girl named Sarah The story is based on historical fact In 1942 on the orders of German military authorities French police brutally arrested all Jewish families in Paris Almost all of them perished in concentration camps The second parallel story is about an American journalist Julia Jermond who writing an article about Vel’ d’Hiv’s roundup found out many horrible details of this crime committed by French police France wanted to forget about its anti human past and thoroughly concealed it The author reminds us of those tragic facts I am not going to retell the stories They are already well known but the book gave birth to some of my thoughts In her novel the author writes with anxiety and great concern that people want to forget about the Holocaust One character of the book says “Bringing back the past is never a good idea especially whatever happened during the war No one wants to be reminded of that nobody wants to think about that” The book demonstrates that such amnesia can be deadly For a long time naïve people believed that the world moves in the direction of higher level of humanization In their naivety they missed the point when one of the most horrible and bloodthirsty variety of anthropoids resembling humans became active Russian anthropoids captured power in the Soviet Russia invented concentration camps and killing over a million innocent people yearly Over a period of 20 years they killed at least 20 million maybe Then World War II broke out and the world forgot about the 20 million innocent victims Humanlike anthropoids appeared in other countries and people continued to believe that they were ordinary criminals People’s beliefs melted like a piece of paper in acid when the terrifying truth about fascist factories of deaths became known People couldn’t believe what they learned Using modern technology fascist anthropoids made the killing of humans a branch of industry For human beings the Holocaust is impossible to understand it is just unexplainable And the only way to prevent it from happening again is to never forget it The reviewed book is multidimensional emotionally written but unfortunately as it has been mentioned in some reviews it has weak points as well Nevertheless I was impressed with the book its main message makes the readers think and this is a sign of good literature The advantage of the book is in the strong civic position of the author that I think has made the book a bestseller This book is about events which were not wide known; it reminds people about the necessity to be alert Otherwise the modern anthropoids will commit a new Holocaust and now all people can become their victims They already are trying to convince us that there is nothing to remember; there wasn’t a Holocaust at all In general the book is well written and author’s voice is strong In my opinion the book deserves not less than four stars Everybody who cares about human life who reads books not just for entertainment will read this book with interest and will continue to return to it in hisher mind Sol Tetelbaum

    I was intrigued by the plot for this book A young girl locks her brother in a cupboard at their apartment in Paris before the Police at the behest of the Nazi's take away her and her family They wait for several days in a detention center in conditions like the Superdome before being sent to camps in Southern France and we wonder if she will retrieve her little brother before he dies or starves or hopefully is rescued Unfortunately another storyline involving a two dimensional American woman whining about her insensetive French husband comes in every other chapter and the mediocre writing makes what could have been an interesting story less than satisfying

    I might have given this book higher marks if I hadn't just finished the infinitely superior The Book Thief But as it is I'm feeling pretty generous with my 2 stars The subject matter was intriguing I didn't realize what had happened with the Jews in France But the author spent too little time with Sarah and her experience there and too much time with boring self absorbed present day Julia and her sex life Snore

    This story could only have been written by a French person because anyone else could and possibly would be seen as casting stones Fortunately Tatiana de Rosnay is a French citizen and her bravery is outstanding as she brings to light the heartbreaking historical story that runs underneath the fictional story like a dark terrifying catacomb below the streets of Paris On July 16 and 17 1942 13152 Jews were arrested in Paris and the suburbs deported and assassinated at Auschwitz In the Véledrome d’Hiver that once stood on this spot 1129 men 2916 women and 4115 children were packed here in inhuman conditions by the government of the Vichy police by order of the Nazi occupant May those who tried to save them be thanked Passerby never forget Those are the words on a plaue near where the original Véledrome d’Hiver nicknamed the Vel’ d’Hiv’ was located A huge arena with seats and galleries reaching nearly to the roof where usually races were held; on those days of July the walls were filled permanently with fear confusion desolation and misery Over six thousand Parisian policemen were commissioned to carry out this atrocityThis is the story of Sarah who with her parents were part of “the roundup” This is also the story of Julia who for the 60th anniversary was to write the story of this terrible event for the American magazine she worked for in Paris The stories of these two characters become inextricably bound as Julia’s research for her article branches off into a uest to learn about one particular little girl SarahThis novel is brilliant and so well written that when I set the book down the first time after starting it I was convinced I would never be able to write a review because I was too upset Not just upset angry We are now almost 77 years removed from this event – and how uickly we forgetI wasn’t going to but I did edit out several paragraphs of a rant about how close we all are to yet atrocities in our current world climate They are already happening Ultimately 76000 Jews were deported from France for assassination during occupation by the Nazis This could not have happened without the cooperation of the police and the people who informed on their friends neighbours doctors lawyers teachers writers artists librarians salespeople service contractors I don’t think we have to look very hard or very far to see how close we are to this same level of blind ignorance driven and manufactured fear that leads to catastrophe Yet power mongers continue to manufacture and use fear – and continue to be listened to revered and in some cases elected to offices of authority and powerKudos to Tatiana de Rosnay for her courage in telling this story It has already been read by millions of people around the world My hope is that it continues to be read by millions Zakhor Al Tichkah Remember Never forget

    spoilers Lots of spoilers Don't read thisdisclaimer This is a review of the book Sarah's Key and not the Holocaust I give the Holocaust negative infinity stars if you were wonderingFuck you Sarah's Key you manipulative sonofabitching asshole How dare you make me feel like this at Christmas? Dead baby brother in a cupboard? Really? Gassing the parents at Auschwitz wasn't enough? I don’t give a goddamn what you throw at me for the rest of the story I WILL NOT CRY AFTER THAT BULLSHIT I know that’s all you want and you’re not going to get it Not from meNone of the miserable crap in this story would even happen Here's Sarah and her little brother as the police are banging on the door and taking the whole family away for being Jewish She grabbed him but he wriggled out of her grasp and slithered into the long deep cupboard hidden in the surface of the wall of their bedroom The one they played hide and seek in They hid there all the time locked themselves in and it was like their own little house Maman and Papa knew about it but they always pretended they didn'tDo they make cupboards that lock from the inside? No If you’ve got two kids who like to play in a cupboard with a lock do you let them play in it with the key so they can lock each other in? No You unlock it and hide the key Duh If the police come for you and you want to protect your brother even if you think you’re coming back in the morning do you lock your brother in there for the night? No No one would do that Not even a 10 year old You'd just close him in If the police try to open a cupboard to look inside and it's locked they're going to make you unlock it In times of extreme fear does a 4 year old kid decide to stay in a cupboard instead of going with their parents? No see comments for revisions I should make to the two preceding paragraphs based on a fact I missed while skimming like the barbaric hell bound skimmer that I am Then on top of all that we're supposed to believe that a new family moves into the apartment right after the old family leaves and no one smells the rotting child in the cupboard?? Have you ever had a mouse die under your refrigerator? A raccoon die under your porch? Right But lets just assume that the family doesn't smell it Maybe they don't have noses They would still probably pick the lock so they could USE THE CUPBOARD in their goddamn new apartment The whole premise of the whole plot is just one flaw after another And then that terrible poem at the end WHY??Not to mention the half assed chick lit nitwit character I couldn’t care less about Fucking Julia I wish she would die in a locked cupboard She takes up most of the book with her idiotic pregnancy and her arrogant French husband How refreshing An arrogant Frenchman Where on earth did the author come up with that??Ok Ok Obviously this book made me really really mad and I gave it two stars which is kind of weird But here's why The Sarah part of the story was really uite good I learned about the Vel' d'Hiv Roundup which is interesting and upsetting and I'd never even heard of It made me feel awful and guilty and pissed off but it made me FEEL And that's somethingI shed one small tear at the very end totally against my will DAMMIT When she named the baby Sarah even though I saw it coming a mile away and I hated her anyway so why do I care?? URRGH I hated Julia not the baby I'm sure the baby was sweet

    October 2009 re reading this book again for another book club I hope I like it better than the 1st time but so far I'm not seeing it Why would she use a word like ingurgitating when you can say ate?? That kind of writing irritates me a lot The true story is heartbreaking and very interesting but her writing just doesn't impress me as expressing the true horrors experienced by the deported Jews or any real feeling for Julia's anger at her husband disdainful treatment of her Spring 2009 Predictable story pedestrian predictable writing None of the plot surprises were surprising I felt I wasted my time on this book selected for a book club I belong to

    35 stars This is a dual timeline historical fiction novel about the arrests of Jewish families in France during WWII and their terrible experiences focusing on the actual historic Vel' d'Hiv' roundup in July 1942 and a modern journalist's investigation of that event and her search for some of the people involved The inside of the Vélodrome d'Hiver bicycle stadium demolished in 1959In the 1942 timeline in Paris a 10 year old girl is arrested with her Polish mother and father in the middle of the night Her 3 or 4 year old brother terrified hides himself in their secret hiding place a hidden cupboard Sarah locks him in assuring him that she'll be back in a few hours Instead her family is taken to the Vélodrome d'Hiver a bicycle stadium where they and thousands of other Jewish families including many children were held in deplorable conditions without enough food water or sanitary facilities for 5 days before being sent on to prison camps The family frantic to get their little boy plead with the police but nothing is doneIn the other timeline the year 2002 also in Paris Julia Jarmond an American journalist married to a Frenchman who has lived in Paris for about 25 years is asked to write an article about the Vel' d'Hiv's roundup on its 60th anniversary As she investigates she finds that her husband's family home is where Sarah's family lived before they were arrested Julia feels compelled to investigate this particular aspect of the tragedy and gets involved deeper and deeper despite resistance from her husband and othersThis book had a major impact on me and when I first finished it I thought it was an easy 4 stars despite some significant weaknesses in characterization and what felt like author manipulation But in the cold light of morning those things are bothering me The characters especially the present day ones are mostly stereotypes the suave cheating French husband the wise beyond her years daughter the over eager nurse at an abortion facility people hiding old secrets with a stiff upper lip It's pretty well written but they're still thin It's also an emotionally manipulative book from Sarah's experiences to Julia's love life I felt like the author was too obvious in pushing the reader to feel in certain waysBut there were a couple of unexpected twists for me in the plot and the Vel' d'Hiv' plotline is truly compelling It brought tears to my eyes I don't regret reading it at all if only because I'm glad to know about this tragic historical event

    A tragic and beautifully told story that is moving and evocative Having read this as a book club read some years ago it was nice to read it again and take it for what it was just a well written and beautifully told story and a book that will stay with me many years from now Sarah's Key is the poignant story of two families forever linked and haunted by one of the darkest days in France's past In this emotionally intense page turning novel Tatiana de Rosnay reveals the guilt brought on by long buried secrets and the damage that the truth can inflict when they finally come unravelled I find I read books differently when I am reading them for sit in book club as opposed to leisurely reading for my own enjoyment I sometimes think I am trying to hard to find the discussion value in the book or how others might see a situation or how my own opinion might become altered in the discussionWhile awaiting a book delivery I am picking out a couple of books that I have wanted to re read for various reasons and Sarah’s Key is ones that I wanted to revisit Based on an event in history Known as the Vel' d'Hiv Roundup French police directed by Nazis arrested and deported 13000 Jewish men women and children and the majority of those arrested were deported to Auschwitz The book follows two main characters Sarah the young daughter of a Jewish family taken in 1942 and Julia a journalist in modern day Paris who has an assignment to write about the Vel' d'Hiv Roundup Both stories are interesting but I was taken with Sarah’s story and the historical events of the time While I really enjoyed the book for its page turning value and memorable characters I wasn’t a fan of the romantic element of the story and the ending didn’t really work for me either However I really did enjoy the novel and any book that highlights important events in history in my option are worth their weight in gold

    I finished Sarah's Key this morning and I have so many thoughts going through my head about it I loved the pacing of the story how it switched between Sarah's story and Julia's story up until the point where the two merged I loved how the style of Sarah's story was completely different than the style of Julia's story I loved how both stories made me cry even though I knew what was coming I loved how realistically the characters were portrayed Nobody was all good or all bad just human with human frailties I loved the depictions of the small acts of conscience and kindness I had no idea about the roundups of Jews in France I did know that the Nazis tended to just send children who were too young to work straight to the gas chambers I think the author did a good job of illustrating why the French people seemed to forget what had happened and how the Holocaust indirectly affected them I hope writers continue writing stories like Sarah's Key that bring the atrocities of the Holocaust to light so we can learn and not repeat those mistakes

    I agree with Katie on this one I did not enjoy this book It tells two stories one about a young French girl whose family is rounded up and taken away during the Holocaust and the other about a modern day journalist who is tracking down her story Julia the contemporary narrator was self obsessed clueless and downright annoying I couldn't stand her husband or even her perfect little kid for that matter It made it hard to root for them because they were just so unlikeable The premise behind Sarah's story was good but her character was so underdeveloped that I didn't feel emotionally invested in her story at all I wanted to feel something because it was a Holocaust story for crying out loud but maybe once you've read The Book Thief everything else pales in comparison Plus rather than showing the horrible conditions Sarah went through and letting the audience feel sad because they cared about her the author just kept telling us how sad and terrible everything was so there was nothing left to feel It seemed like lazy writing Also the story was sooooooo predictable Every major plot point I saw coming from a thousand miles away I kept hoping that the author was intentionally misleading her readers only to surprise them in the end but no everything turned out EXACTLY as I predicted from probably the first twenty pages Sigh
