Review: WALDEK, THE BOY WHO DEFIED THE NAZIS, by Blanca Miosi

Once in a rare while a book comes along that affects you so deeply, and on so many levels, that it becomes fixed in your memory forever. WALDEK, THE BOY WHO DEFIED THE NAZIS, by Blanca Miosi, is such a book for me.

This novel, based on the life of Waldek Grodek, held me completely captive from beginning to end, and then the “grand finale” was a surprising revelation in the author’s note at its conclusion.

WALDEK, THE BOY WHO DEFIED THE NAZIS is definitely a book not to be missed. I regret that Amazon does not allow me to give this book more than 5 stars as it deserves more. I highly recommend this novel.

“Grandfather?” said Rose.

“Yes?”

“Do you and King Neron think war is unavoidable?”

Razzmorten sighed and looked at her with a grave face. “Without a miracle, yes indeed,” he answered.

“Thank you for being straight with me, Grandfather,” she said as she cast a worried look at Fuzz. “We’d feared it would be so, but we were hoping that, you know, with the Elves being Elves…”

“Sure. You’d hoped they’d have some magical and quick solution.”

“Yes.”

“Rose, I’m afraid that even though the solution will indeed be magical, it will not be at all quick.”

“Grandfather! It sounds as if you know how to stop this war.”

“Yes I do, Rose, but it is neither in my power nor that of the Elves.”

“Then, who can possibly do it?” she said, as Mystique traded places walking in the path with Abracadabra.

“Oh, Daniel or possibly Ariel, or perhaps both of them together…”

“But they’re babies!” she said with a gasp. “It’ll be years before they’re old enough to do such a thing. What’ll be left of the world?”

“Not much as we now know it, I fear,” he said, bearing the most haunted look she had ever seen come from his kindly and steadfastly optimistic old eyes, “not much at all.”
