Someone Named Eva
Audience: 5th Grade - 8th Grade
In 1942, in the village of Lidice, Czechoslovakia, 11-year-old Milada has just celebrated her birthday with her loving family. Though the village is under Nazi rule and food is in short supply, the family is happy. Then, in the middle of the night soldiers suddenly burst into their home and herd the family to a school gym to await further orders. They are separated, and Milada is taken to a center in Poland, where she is retrained to be a perfect German citizen, because her features are what the Nazis consider the Aryan ideal. After two years, she is adopted by a high ranking German officer and his family. Based on true events, it is the story of love and loss and the many emotions in between.
