Escape from war

Short summary

Frank lives in the east end of London. When his father was drafted and his neighborhood had been bombed, Frank escaped to the countryside. When he had got there, he met a German Jewish girl named Hannah and he learned about what was at stake in the war with Nazi Germany.


I think that the theme if this story is.....

Hopelessness. The reason I think the theme is hopelessness is because Frank just got over a tragedy of bombing and he needs to find hope/peace.

Historical facts

While Hannah is suffering a tragedy of losing her family members, Frank is not understanding the horror of life around it.

I think that for some historical facts the author talks about how she escaped from the war on train to save the English countryside. But I think of how did the bombers and the men that are shooting not catch her sneaking out.
