    1. In 1945 Katarina Holberg Katya was only six years old, but what she and the other children saw when they arrived at Manor House would haunt her for life Her eight year old sister, Lilly had insisted that she go with them that day and it was their father, Karel Bauer, who was the Wehrmacht commander who allowed, Katya to attend even though she was too young to go.Years later in 1949 in Oslo, Norway, Katya, Lilly and their mother, Sonja were in an interment camp The camp had one hundred and eighty [...]


    2. It was 1945 and Katarina Katya Holberg was really too young at six years old to go to the Manor House with the other children, but her father, the Wehrmacht commander Karel Bauer relented when Katya s sister Lilly begged him to allow her sister to go The horrors of that day were etched in Katya and Lilly s memories for a long time with their survival a miracle.Eight years later, the war is over and Katya, Lilly and their mother had been in the internment camp in Oslo for some time When they were [...]


    3. My identification with Katya made this a tough read because she experienced so many traumatic events during and after World War II I had to take frequent breaks from the book in order to cope with its raw intensity.The circus Klindenspiel was supposed to be a haven for Katya She would be able to exhibit the skills as a contortionist that she had learned from her mother Yet the young performers at Klindenspiel were submerged in a miasma of fear and antagonism toward their superiors and each other [...]



    4. To me, the beginning read as if it were a back story or perhaps an outline of a novel The main character is quick marched through a series of events, finally slowing at the point where the story actually begins.I m not an authority on the Holocaust, but from the interviews I ve read, Nazi officers who worked in concentration camps did not share that portion of their lives with their families, not to mention actually taking their young children on a field trip of their places of employment to obs [...]


    5. Not sure how I feel about this book Was not excited to get back to it each time I laid it down Not a favorite.


    6. LAST STOP KLINDENSPIEL by Marta TandoriI received a free copy of this book in eBook form from the author in exchange for an honest review.The story starts in 1945 Katya is six years old Her mother is Norwegian and her father is a high ranking German SS officer She has grown up never leaving the plush residential compound that housed German officers and their families Nothing in Katya s six short years of life has prepared her for the drastic changes her life was about to undergo.Allied troops ov [...]


    7. As a history buff I was intrigued about Last Stop Klindenspiel, even so because of the time period The effects of WWII still vibrates through our modern world today through various policies and agreements made after the War ended Thus, when Marta Tandoori choose to write about the Lebensborn Children, a subject rarely brought to light I could not wait to devour this novel The Lebensborn Children was an experiment headed by Heinrich Himmler He believed he was able to genetically bring forth chil [...]


    8. There is no doubt that the atrocities performed by the Nazis during World War II were horrific and inhumane LAST STOP KLINDENSPIEL provides a glimpse of the Lebensborn program that was started to begin to fulfill the idea of a pure Aryan race As a novel aimed at young adults in the 21st century, I m not sure this book provides enough background for them to grasp the extent of the psychological damage done to thousands of children in the name of racial purity.When writing a period piece, it is no [...]


    9. Evil comes in many forms, and Kate Stanton has seen it all.What happens to the Lebensborn Children, the product of Hitler s perfect race after the war was over Ask Katya Holberg, or I should say, Kate Stanton Born to a beautiful Norwegian mother, Sonja, and Karl, a high ranking officer for the Third Reich, Katya s life is destroyed the day the allies liberate the concentration camp that Katya s father runs Life is now a living hell, and one by one, Katya loses everything and everyone she loves t [...]


    10. Powerful post war YA drama adventureA young adult novel set primarily in the Europe of the first decade post World War II, Last Stop Klindenspiel is a very successful blend of historical fact and fiction Although it was written as a backstory to an established series, it stands very well on its own merit as an independent story.Katya Holberg s story is horrifyingly plausible, being based on the historical setting and reflecting similar experiences of real people The fictional aspects are so inte [...]


    11. I received an electronic copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I am quite glad that this is the first book that I have read in the Kate Stanton mystery series, being that it is a prequel and showcases Kate when she was known as Katya Holberg I usually am not one to read books out of order, but this is one case where I feel that it was necessary As one of the Lebensborn Children, Katya was a product of Hitler s drive to create the perfect race Her strength of character is a direct re [...]


    12. Right away the story was an emotional readKept on through the whole book.Filled with tragedy and deep raw emotions I rated a final 4 stars from different parts.Mostly due to part of how it was able to capture the way it depicted that Era in History through the eyes of a child and makes you wonder how a single deranged man,could try to change the world and how many children were bred for his sick reasoning only and not for love.Also because of the surprise,which I did not see coming in the book.I [...]


    13. I didn t think that I would have liked this book as much as I did I actually put off reading it, because these types of books always make me sad, and I don t like being sad I wish I had read it earlier The main character Katya, was such an amazing girl She was brave, honest, loyal, kind, and hopeful I felt so sorry for Katya, because she went through so much, and yet it didn t make her bitter in life.Katya s story was heart wrenching, but she did have a happy ending.


    14. Katya, a special child who had blond hair and blue eyes had a Norwegian mother and a Nazi father She went through an ordeal when the bus she was riding along with other special children was bombed and she escaped with her sister Eventually she was approached to join the Klindenspiel Who was Karel Bauer and Ivan Jaworski and Who had all the stolen art and jewelry that the Nazi s took Would The war criminal get caught What a moving story


    15. A book that starts out a bit gruesome and then becomes a fun story that is part mystery suspense and part adventure, as a young girl, daughter of a Nazi concentration camp officer, struggles to adjust to life in a circus while making sense of her dark past I d recommend this to readers 13 because of the violent nature of several scenes.


    16. Beautiful StoryI absolutely love, love, loved every word of it the underlying histirical truths make it very interesting to say the least
