When Peter’s parents are killed, he is sent to an orphanage in Warsaw, Poland. But Peter is Volksdeutscher-of German blood. With his blond hair and blue eyes, he looks just like the boy on the Hitler Youth poster. The Nazis decide he is racially valuable. Indeed, a prominent German family is pleased to adopt such a fine Aryan specimen into their household. He doesn’t want to be a Nazi.
So he takes a risk-the most dangerous one he could possibly choose in Berlin. Paul Dowswell weaves meticulous research into a thrilling narrative, exposing a different angle of the horrors of Nazi Germany. He has written more than fifty highly acclaimed books, many of them award winning. Would you like to tell us about a lower price?

The Story starts out by showing how utterly lovely Peters life is. He has a loving mother and father, and even though the war is going crazy and elsewhere there are millions of people are dying lil Peter has a good life.
That is until his parents are accidently killed in a car accident. He is then sent to a orphanage, where things are really bad, its like his life is turned upside down. The German military comes and is looking for “Pure bloods among the Polish” those who could be blended back into the german life.
Peter is taken in by a “good and loving family” because he looks to be the perfect picture of Hitler youth. But he can never shake the feeling that something is “off”. My true rating for this is 3.
The evocation of how the propaganda permeated Nazi Germany was fascinating–talk about the banality of evil! Auslamder know some readers complained that it moved too slowly, but I thought the slow dawning on the protagonist of just what German society was like at the time was spot-on.
But the writing was pedestrian at best. At first I thought that it was a stylistic choice, in keeping with the relative youth and naivety of the main character, but as the story and POV widened, it became clear such wasn’t the case.
A shame, as the merely serviceable prose keeps this from being a truly moving story. Another addition to a crowded genre.
Good use of historical research, yet auslahder application seemed forced. Plot and supporting characters were weak and undeveloped. There was no moral arch to the story line. The author attempts to use shocking language nude scenes and underage drinking parties to enliven the story line.
THE AUSLÄNDER by Paul Dowswell | Kirkus Reviews
In so doing, the real horrors of that age has been superimposed by contemporary teenage angst. While good enough for what passes as teen fiction, this work fails to adequately explore the deep moral issues dowswrll the Nazi eugenics program. The book was not a memoir but it was based on events that did take place during WW 2. It was easy to read. I enjoyed the book greatly.
I found that the author researched it and that the research made it very believable.
