Karen Bass á Graffiti Knight Book Sion goes too far and Wilm finds he’s endangered the very people he most wants to protectAward winning author Karen Bass brings readers a fast paced story about a boy fighting for self expression in an era of censorship and strugg This was well written but Bass is actually uite ahistorical in her writing She does not acknowledge the reasons the Soviets would be furious with the Germans the Nazi atrocities on the Eastern front were horrendous Bass does not deal with the history of Nazi Germany at all in her world all the former soldiers were merely conscripts This is a story many Germans tell each other and I know this from my own family history Bass leaves out the choices people made to support fascism This area of Germany was highly anti Semitic and devoted to Nazi ideology and practice; a historical novel should deal with those facts and that aftermath The lack of acknowledgement of that history by Bass and others still has effects Saxony is still to this day one of the areas of Germany with the highest numbers of right wing extremists And while the Soviet era was also awful fascism in any form is evil Bass’s book glides over all of that history I felt rather ill while reading this book to be honest How many people do not know the story of Nazi German atrocities on the Eastern front How many people will accept this simplistic portrait of that time I have family who lived in the then East Germany and I know their stories I am not a GDR apologist But I also know the stories of my family members who were Nazi supporters and others who were not Bass doesn’t deal with that reality instead we get a caricature of evil Soviets It’s a well written book but it’s not good history
