Someone named Eva

Joan M. Wolf


On the night Nazi soldiers come to her home in Czechoslovakia, Milada's grandmother says, "Remember, Milada. Remember who you are. Always." Milada promises, but she doesn't understand her grandmother's words. After all, she is Milada, who lives with her mama and papa, her brother and sister, and her beloved Babichka ( Grandma ). Milada, eleven years old, the fastest runner in school. How could she ever forget. Then the Nazis take Milada away from her family and send her to a Lebensborn center in Poland. There, she is told she fits in with the German: her blond hair and blue eyes are the right color; her head and nose, the right size. She is given a new name, Eva, and trained to become the perfect German girl, to be the hope of Germany's future and to forget she was ever a Czech girl named Milada.

Starting in 1939, the Nazis started to kidnap children from foreign countries including Russia, Czech, Romania, Latvia and Poland for the Lebensborn program. They started to do this because "It is our duty to take the children with us to remove them from their environment, either we win over any good blood that we can use for ourselves and give it a place in our people or we destroy this blood," Himmler reportedly said. The Nazis would take children from their parents, right in front of the parents. The kidnapped children were administered several tests and were categorised into three groups. Unwanted, ok, and perfect. ,lids was put into the category perfect and was taken to a Lebensborn center in Poland. There every morning she would wake up and do the hitler salut then have breakfast in her German girls uniform the go to language class and learn German language and history the do core class training. Then after thee years of German training she was adopted by a blonde haired, blue eyed German family. Most of the same thing happened in the real center but some girls were fourst to become pregnant before getting adopted and some were never adopted and where killed if they did not learn fast enough.
