The second world war and nazism are probably the topics there are books about but I am always surprised by the originality of some I would classify Max as a coming of age story but obviously it is very different from other books belonging to this category that you might have read being essentially the coming of age story of a little nazi We follow Max's life from when he is still in his mother's belly to around the age of ten He is the first baby produced by the Lebensborn program initially ideated by Henrich Himmler whose aim was to pare people of pure aryan race to make them produce a pure aryan baby that they would donate to Hitler to replace the judish population This is a first person narration it is always Max who speaks even when he is just a fetus Max has really evil thoughs he does not think and act like a normal child at all Max is a nazi even before being born Obviously this is the hyperbole that the author decides to use to show that an ideology as rooted as nazism prescind individuality and age sometimes there is no escape especially if that is what you have always been taught In my opinion this novel is as harsh as brilliant It breakes the mith that children are always innocent and good and at the same time highlights how important the atmosphere you grow in is I really liked it I recommend it to everyone because this book is really brave and it carries really interesting concepts in a really interesting way

Sarah Cohen-Scali ↠ 5 Summary

E Je suis l'enfant du futur Conçu sans amour Sans Dieu Sans loi Sans rien d'autre ue la force et la rage Je mordrai au lieu de téter Je hurlerai au lieu de gazouiller Je haïrai au lieu d'aimer Heil HitlerMax est le prototype parfait du programme Lebensborn initié par Himmler Des femmes sélectionnées. This is the story of a child born under the Nazi Lebensborn program which was essentially a program to breed pure Ayran babies who would be the future leaders of the Third Reich Max is born on April 20 1936 making him the first baby to roll off the production line He is also the narrator of this story which covers not just the Lebensborn program but also the abduction and germanification of suitably Ayran children from other countries and the lives of ordinary Germans as the war drew to a close Real people and events are woven into the storyMax is a lively narrator who is initially very euphoric about all things Nazi and who can't wait to grow up and fight for the Fatherland While he never knows his mother he understands that she was selected and rigorously examined to ensure that she was a perfect Ayran specimen He is indoctrinated in all things Nazi from infancy and therefore is very matter of fact about the abduction of Polish children in his eyes they are lucky to be receiving a German upbringing However things become murkier when he befriends Lukas a blonde and blue eyed Pole who is secretly Jewish Gradually his enthusiasm will wane and his disenchantment will grow over the course of the warMy central issue with the story is Max's youth He has only just turned nine when the war ends Essentially his narration is a device and you have to suspend disbelief that a child would think the things that he does and just go with the story which he starts telling us when he's still a foetus in the wombOriginally published in France in 2012 Max has only recently been translated into English

I received this book for free from the publisher Walker Books in return for a reviewMax is the perfect Nazi baby Born as part of the eugenics programme his blond hair blue eyes and entire body are perfect But raised with Nazi ideology and living through the brutality of war how long can Max cope before reality uestions his own beliefs'Max' is such an amazing and powerful novel it had me gripped shocked horrified and even had me crying Told in the first person perspective throughout Max tells us his story It starts with him talking to us from inside the womb This may seem odd but I got into the story straight away and I'm surprised how gripped I was from just the first few lines As Max is born and begins to grow up he tells us his story though his own Nazi ideology Although children may have not been born with that mindset they were conditioned to think a certain way and this is how Max thinks from the first moment we read His attitude and opinions are full of hatred and are offensive but it's the way the Nazis thought and this is what makes this novel so powerfulThe book is separated into four parts Each one a different time period in Max's life As the book spans the timeframe of 1936 to 1945 Max doesn't grow up much in age but what he goes though and the experiences he has are far mature than any nine year old should have gone through The story is Max's and we learn about his life growing up without love conditioned to be the perfect future soldier but as we read on other characters sometimes relay stories or Max is able to see something happening which gives a greater insight into what was happening not only with the eugenics titled the 'Lebensborn' programme but we see other things that the Nazis did during the war The horrors or war get and dark and shocking the further you read into the book This may be a YA novel but it doesn't hold back from describing what really happened You read about sickening and bloody deaths sex rape and many of the horrors including some of the details of the holocaust This book is designed to shock and horrify and it really does I've known a lot about the horrors of the Nazis in world war II both from what I learned at school and my various Polish extended family but reading this stuff in a novel when you feel you are part of the story was just all the shocking and brutal I liked the fact that towards the end the story didn't hold back from telling the truth of what happened in the end of the war and didn't just focus on the brutality from the NazisDespite all the horrors I was so gripped by the novel that I only put it down when real life got in the way The ending is a satisfying one but the whole book isn't a happy one Apart from some uite graphic descriptions and mentions of deaths there is use of the f and s swear words as well as some milder ones though this isn't too freuent I usually don't enjoy too much swearing in novels but this felt so right and it made the story all the intenseAt the end of reading this novel I feel exhausted I felt like crying too but I'm glad I read this Not only do you feel for this character Max as he's just a young child and what he goes though isn't anything a child should go through but at the same time you find yourself shocked at hearing the Nazi ideology come from him It was really chilling to read at times but you still feel for this character and it really makes it all the harder to put this book down as you want to see what happens to himI'd give this book a hundred stars if I could It deserves them It's so well written and you feel such emotions when reading it It's a book that should be read by everyone young and old and it's the sort of book I wish I'd had when learning about the holocaust and war at school It's endorsed by Amnesty International which isn't surprising The authors notes at the end show how most of the characters are based on real people making this again chilling and dark This book is sold as a YA novel but given the content I'd say older teens should read this and not anyone younger the details are just too dark but a book I'd recommend everyone around the world to pick up and read
