Acerca del libro

Auschwitz Lullaby revive la historia de Helene Hannemann, una mujer que sacrificó todo por la familia y luchó furiosamente por los hijos que esperaba salvar.

En una mañana por lo demás ordinaria en 1943, Helene Hannemann está preparando a sus cinco hijos para el día en que la policía alemana llegue a su casa. Los peores temores de Helene se hacen realidad cuando la policía, bajo estrictas órdenes de las SS, exige que sus hijos y su esposo, todos de ascendencia romaní, sean detenidos. A pesar de que Helene es alemana y está a salvo de las fuerzas que invaden su hogar, se niega a dejar a su familia, sellando su destino de una manera que nunca podría haber imaginado.

Después de un aterrador viaje por el continente, Helene y su familia llegan a Auschwitz y son arrojados al caos del campamento. Su esposo, Johann, está separado de ellos, pero Helene sigue siendo ferozmente protectora de sus hijos y de quienes la rodean. Cuando los futuros poderes descubren que Helene no es solo una alemana sino también una enfermera entrenada, la obligan a trabajar en el hospital de campaña, supervisado por el famoso Dr. Mengele.

Helene no se hace ilusiones en cuanto a las intenciones del Dr. Mengele, pero acepta cooperar cuando le pide que organice una guardería y una escuela para los niños romaníes en el campamento. Aunque física y emocionalmente brutalizado por las condiciones en Auschwitz, Helene reúne la fuerza para proteger a los niños bajo su cuidado a cualquier costo. A través de pura fuerza de voluntad, Helene ofrece un refugio para los niños de Auschwitz, un acto de bondad y desinterés tan grande que ilumina la noche más oscura de la historia humana.

Basado en una historia real, Auschwitz Lullaby de Mario Escobar demuestra el poder del sacrificio y la fuerza de la dignidad humana, incluso cuando toda esperanza parece perdida.

About the Book

In 1943 Germany, Helene is just about to wake up her children to go to school when a group of policemen break into her house. The policemen want to haul away her gypsy husband and their five children. The police tell Helene that as a German she does not have to go with them, but she decides to share the fate of her family. After convincing her children that they are going off to a vacation place, so as to calm them, the entire family is deported to Auschwitz.

For being German, they are settled in the first barracks of the Gypsy Camp. The living conditions are extremely harsh, but at least she is with her five children. A few days after their arrival, Doctor Mengele comes to pay her a visit, having noticed on her entry card that she is a nurse. He proposes that she direct the camp’s nursery. The facilities would be set up in Barrack 29 and Barrack 31, one of which would be the nursery for newborn infants and the other for children over six years old.

Helene, with the help of two Polish Jewish prisoners and four gypsy mothers, organizes the buildings. Though Mengele provides them with swings, Disney movies, school supplies, and food, the people are living in crowded conditions under extreme conditions. And less than 400 yards away, two gas chambers are exterminating thousands of people daily.

For sixteen months, Helene lives with this reality, desperately trying to find a way to save her children. Auschwitz Lullaby is a story of perseverance, of hope, and of strength in one of the most horrific times in history.Product Details
