The book looks at a different atrocity during WWII. The characters are fleeing their homelands and trying to make it from East Prussia to the Wilhelm Gustoff, a ship intended to transport refugees. The group sets out together , but as Joanna says when they arrive at the vessel, "It's been nice to trek with everyone, but now we're here. I don't need a group. I need my belongings and I need a ship," (175). The four main characters, Alfred, Florian, Emilia, and Joana alternate each chapter. The book reads very quickly as the chapters are short and the POV alternates so rapidly. Although it could be classified as a Holocaust novel, it tells of a different atrocity, yet equally as horrific as the concentration camps. I found myself intrigued by Klaus, a young boy they find wandering after his mom dies in the cold. Over 9,000 died when the ship was torpedoed. Two of the main characters survive. ( )

Remember in school when you learned about the sinking of the Wilhem Gustloff?

Yeah, that's what I thought. Me, too.

As she did in [b:Between Shades of Gray|7824322|Between Shades of Gray|Ruta Sepetys|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1327873479s/7824322.jpg|10870318], author Ruta Sepetys vividly and emotionally gives a voice to those who have been lost to history in her latest book, [b:Salt to the Sea|25614492|Salt to the Sea|Ruta Sepetys|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1437084512s/25614492.jpg|27126244]. In this fast-paced and stirring book, readers follow a rag-tag band of refugees through Nazi-occupied East Prussia in the waning days of WWII as they try to escape from the advancing Russian forces. The refugees are headed toward ports on the Baltic Sea where they have heard ships will transport them to safety.

While the refugee group includes both a child and an elderly man, the majority of those in the group are teens and young adults, and Sepetys primarily tells the story through their point of view. Don't be put off by this YA bent. Sepetys's writing is smart and mature and will appeal to those who normally wouldn't consider a YA book.

WWII-inspired literature is prevalent, and I find myself sadly thinking of its relevance today more than ever. How "leaders" foment hatred and distrust among groups of neighbors who once worked for the same goals. "Would she believe that Poles, Jews, Ukrainians, Armenians, and Hungarians had all coexisted peacefully in Lviv before the war?"

Sepetys includes a poignant author's note at the end of the book, parts of which I'd like to share here: "Stories of war are often read and discussed worldwide by readers whose nations stood on opposite side during battle. History divided us, but through reading we can be united in story, study, and remembrance. Books join us together as a global reading community, but more important, a global human community striving to learn from the past. What determines how we remember history? And which elements are preserved and penetrate the collective consciousness?...When the survivors are gone, we must not let the truth disappear with them."

And the Wilhem Gustolff? It's not exactly a spoiler, since it's a matter of historical record, but it was the largest maritime disaster in history. The boat was designed to hold 1,500 and was carrying over 10,500. It was sunk by Russian torpedos and over 9,400 people died, most of whom were civilians (by comparison, 1,503 died on the Titanic). In 1945 alone it is estimated that over 25,000 people lost their lives in the Baltic Sea, again most of them civilians.

Great WWII historical fiction young adult novel. Saying more feels like it would be giving too much away. ( )

Historical fiction told from the points of view of four individuals thrown together as they flee the advancing Russian army in East Prussia in the final days of World War II, all ultimately boarding the ill-fated German ship, Gustav Wilhelm. This real ship, meant to hold 1,500 passengers was crammed with 10,000 refugees trying to escape when it was hit by three torpedoes launched by a Russian submarine; about 9,000 people perished in the frigid waters of the Baltic Sea. Those narrating characters, all with secrets — Lithuanian nurse Joana, who had been allowed to resettle in Germany; pregnant Polish teenager Amelia; delusional Nazi zealot and soldier Alfred; and Prussian art restorer Florian — as well several other characters they travel with (Eva, Ingrid, Klaus, and the "Shoe Poet") are all believably and beautifully rendered and fully developed, and while they are fictional people, the events that cuased their staggering struggle for survival are tragically.

I previously read Fountains of Silence by Ms. Sepetys, historical fiction set in the post-WWII Franco regime in Spain, which I enjoyed; this one had the same level of credibility and was quite special in that it gave voice to a diverse cast of ordinary people, even though fictional in this case, whose stories would have been lost in time -- not the military or the political, but the real people who are just numbers in the official histories. The author’s note discusses the real life tragedy of the torpedoing of the Gustav Wilhelm – and the countless other lives – military and civilian – lost in the Baltic Sea during WWII – and challenges other writers to give voice to the truths hidden from the official histories.

Belum pernah rasanya aku seattached ini sama buku historical fiction. Buku ini adalah buku Mami Ruta pertama yang aku baca dan aku langsung jatuh cinta. Definisi love at the first sight. I'm head over heels for this book, really.

Buku ini sendiri udah aku beli cukup lama, tapi belum sempat aku baca. Bahkan ketika aku sedang mencari buku dengan tema Perang Dunia juga, aku lupa dengan keberadaan buku ini. Tapi karena aku ikut salah satu reading challenge, pacarku mengingatkan aku dengan buku ini.

Satu kata SERU. BENAR-BENAR SERU. Aku bingung harus menggambarkan dan menceritakan buku ini seperti apa karena aku rasa kalimat sederhanya yang aku punya nggak bisa menggambarkan segimana bagusnya buku ini menurutku.

Kalau biasanya sebuah buku akan berganti sudut pandang ketika bab-nya berganti, justru buku ini rasanya berganti sudut pandang setiap kali kita pindah halaman. Buku ini sendiri ada empat sudut pandang, Florian, Joana, Emilia dan Alfred. Di mana keempat orang ini menyimpan rahasianya masing-masing yang membuat aku terbengong-bengong.

Buku ini juga berhasil bikin aku patah hati, apalagi waktu kepergian Inggrid, Emilia dan Opi Heinz, rasanya aku ingin menangis.

Selama baca buku ini juga aku seperti belajar sejarah, diajak jalan-jalan ke daerah-daerah sebelum terjadi perubahan wilayah. Aku juga jadi tahu peristiwa tenggelamnya kapal Wilhelm Gustloff yang jauh lebih menyayat hati dibanding dengan tenggelamnya kapal Titanic dan atau Lusitania (yang baru aku tau dari buku ini) yang kisahnya lebih mendunia.

Kutipan,
"para penyintas bukanlah saksi yang sesungguhnya. Para saksi sesungguhnya, yang tahu kebenaran yang tak terungkapkan, adalah orang-orang yang tenggelam, mati, dan menghilang."

memang benar adanya, seolah bisa menggambarkan para korban perang saat itu.

Semua kejadian yang ada di dalam buku ini adalah kejadian-kejadian yang sebenarnya terjadi, kecuali tokoh-tokohnya yang fiksi. Ruang Amber, Operasi Hannibal dan Wilhelm Gustloff sendiri adalah hal yang nyata ada dan terjadi saat itu.

Selain keseruan belajar sejarahnya, aku dibuat greget maksimal sama interaksi Florian dan Joana. Mereka berdua adalah penggambaran kisah yang manis, menurutku. Sukses besar bikin aku senyum-senyum sendiri diantara ketegangan-ketegangan yang ada di buku ini.

Kalau boleh aku bilang, buku ini sangat worth to read and worth to buy. Sepertinya aku akan terjun bebas sama buku historical fiction dan buku-buku Mami [a:Ruta Sepetys|3407448|Ruta Sepetys|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1633801019p2/3407448.jpg] yang lainnya. ( )

Four out of five stars. I enjoyed most of this book. However some parts seemed unnecessary and a little slow but over all it was a nice quick read that kept me interested. I wish that there was more to the ending, it was a bit difficult to understand and I re-read it twice just to make sure I got the message on who Florian was reading the letter from. I thought it was a great YA read with nice use of language and context. Alfred was annoying, and after reading a few of his chapters it was refreshing to know that even the other soldiers thought so too. Sepetys really did a great job developing the characters, making you love some of them, feel sorry for some, feel sad for some and be annoyed with some.
