Read full description of the books The Devil in Vienna:Inge Dorenwald and Lieselotte Vessely have been best friends for most of their thirteen years. They share secrets, fears, hopes and even the same birthday. It never mattered that Inge was Jewish and that Lieselotte was the daughter of a Nazi SS officer--until now. Hitler and Nazism are infiltrating Vienna, Austria, in 1938 and suddenly it is forbidden for the girls to continue seeing each other. Despite the danger, Inge and Liselotte struggle to keep their friendship alive. But will they be able to do it?
A new afterword by the author, who based the story on her own experiences during World War II, is included. According to Publishers Weekly, The Devil in Vienna "arouses in its readers anguish, fury, admiration, scorn--it couldn't be a more effective story or a more powerful illustration of the reason 'never to forget.'" This courageous novel is an ALA Notable Book and winner of the Sydney Taylor Award and the Golden Kite Award.
