Bored to death working at her father's small woodworks store, the light of her life rests inside Byleth; a woman she has adored for many years. On the night of a party thrown by Mercedes, Edelgard decides two things; the first? She's going to tell Byleth she loves her. The second? She's going to follow up a lead on something kind of weird she saw outside her father's store today. But when weird turns into sinister, Edelgard von Hresvelg finds that she could never have prepared for the truth behind her small town's sleepy facade.

This is a true story, the memoirs of Edelgard Knoob, with character names changed. Edelgard named Elfi grew up in Germany during the rise and fall of the Nazi Regime and World War II. She was raised by her grandparents, because of fear of her father, yet found great security with her grandfather, building a close and warm relationship with him.

Elfis early years were filled with tranquil childhood memories, but as the years passed, she was exposed to the realities of the regime. Knowledge of Hitlers tyranny increased as Elfi grew to a young girl in a non political family.

The Nazi Party forced the "Heil Hitler" salute, enrollment into the "Hitler Youth" (Bond of German Girls), and the involuntary sterilization of beloved Aunt Gusti. The war years were the most dangerous times for Elfi because of the bombings. Her grandparents lived near the center of Kassel, Germany. She encountered several close calls and miraculous rescues. From early childhood Elfi created a private spiritual world for herself where she could feel secure, like an oasis in a troubled world. With a strong faith, her grandparents had instilled in her, and courage she could face the difficult situations.

She was finally rescued from the immediate danger by being evacuated into the country with her mother and siblings. She was placed with a farmer family and had to travel by train to school in a larger town. Even there she did not escape danger. One day, without warning, the train station was bombed, where all the waiting traveling students were killed. It was only by Gods providence that Elfi was not with them on that particular day. In another village where they had been giving a little more living space Elfis mother was able to have most of her children together again. They remained there until the American tanks rolled into the village and occupied it. Two tanks parked in the farmyard in front of Elfis house. Elfi knew the war would soon be over and they could return to the city and rebuild their lives anew. The story portrays the history of Nazi Germany, from 1933 to 1945, through the eyes of a child. This history is shown through the experiences of a Christian famil! y in a traumatic and heartwarming manner and relates the family, women and childrens life styles during the Third Reich.

In "Elfi's World", Edelgard Knoob transports us to the wondrous time and place of her childhood in Germany. We see through little Elfi's eyes the beauty of an era when times were still simple. Her family comes alive throughout the book as we learn their individual characters. Grandmother and Grandfather played a very important role in Elfi's upbringing and their love and warmth is genuinely felt through the writer. And Aunt Gusti quickly became a favorite of mine. Her cheerfullness and dedication to the family was endearing. I was very sorry to read of her misfortune at the arms of the Third Reich. Elfie's mischiefness keeps us smiling throughout the story but through her loving upbringing, her faith and optimism lets her shine through all obstacles. The memories that are brought to life in this revealing autobiography will immortalize Elfi and her family forever. I would recommend this book as great reading for young and old.
What was it like to be an ordinary child living in Germany in the beginnings of WWII? It's something that we, today, can not fathom.
