No Pretty Pictures: A Child of War
Transcript of No Pretty Pictures: A Child of War
By: Anita Lobel
Nazis come to Poland. Anita is only five and her little brother is three.
Nazi soldiers would go to suspected Jews' houses and would steal and bully the owners.
Anita's father leaves and doesn't come back
Anita, her brother, and Niania left to live in the country because it was safer.
Niania decides to take the children to her old house and dress Anita's brother as a girl.
Niania's mother had died and she couldn't see her because she had to stay with the children.
Anita and her brother left Niana to go stay with their mother and her family in the ghetto.
They had to stay in a cellar all day to wait out the Germans which were going through apartments for Jews.
The children made it out of the Ghetto safely and back to Niania
Niania faked that Anita's eye was hurt so they could stay with the Benedictine sisters.
Anita and her brother made friends with a little girl named Krysia. She was there with tuberculosis and later died.
Nazis take Jews from the Benedictine sisters. The Nazis find out that Anita's brother is a boy.
The Jews who have been rounded up are taken to the Montelupi Prison.
Anita and her brother are taken to a camp. Their aunt, uncle, and cousin are there and take care of them.
One of the women's teenage son was taken and shot. The woman had heard the shot and was hysterical. She tried giving the guards Anita's brother. She kept crying "Why didn't you take him?" or "Why not him?". Thankfully the guards did not take the little boy and instead drug the woman away. Anita never saw her again. That was a big event in her life.
The Nazis and all the Jews leave the camp and start a march in the cold of winter.
