Someone Named Eva
Transcript of Someone Named Eva
Town of Lidice, Czechoslovakia
Lebensborn Center in Puschkau, Poland
Nazi Family Home in Furstenberg, Germany
Point of View
This story is told through the
first person point of view
I think the author chose that point of view so that the reader could really experience first hand what Milada experienced. We got to know all of her thoughts and feelings and only saw things from her perspective. A third person point of view wouldn't let us get to know Milada that deeply.
The main conflict was that Milada was taken from her family, trained to be a German girl, and adopted into a German family. She didn't know if she would ever see her family again.
The primary type of conflict was a
Man vs. Society
conflict because Milada was having to face Nazi society as a non-Nazi.
How does Milada responded to her challenge?
She works to remember who she is despite being turned into a German girl. She does this by keeping her grandmother's pin with her always.
Milada starts off as an innocent 11 year old with a good family and friends. Throughout the book, she is torn from her family and placed with strangers forcing her to ultimately stand up for herself and take care of herself by the end of the book.
