Someone Named Eva

This is one of the stories we don't talk about.  Throughout history we do horrific things during times of war.  This story shares on a very personal level the efffects of the Lebensborn Program during WW II.  Children from various countries were taken from their families and raised to become good German citizins.  They were trained in the language and culture before being adopted out to German families.  This tells the fictional story of a young girl, Milada,  taken from the village of Lidice, Czechoslovakia which has historical significance.  Through Milada we can empathizes with children who were traumatized in a lesser known way by war.  Very compassionately written.  Check our Catalog
