There are 'already' excellent reviews on Goodreads Hats off to each of you!!! I've been reading a few reviews myself - just now -as I begin to formulate my own thoughts.
Read many. I'm 'still' not sure if reviews will give 'choice-clarity' for everyone, but it's the best option.
What NONE of the reviews can do - no matter how much detail is shared --is transfer 'the experience' of this book. Not possible. Knowing that I'll pick a few things to share myself.
I begged it too. But even as I wept and bargained and withered it took care to know my number, and to count every soul it claimed. We were innumerable, we should have overwhelmed this land beneath us into nothingness.
But this patch at earth would not be overwhelmed. Some claimed that we might over-whelm it when we fully understood it's evil.
But whenever we began to understand evil, evil itself increased. Others believed that hope might overwhelm it.
But whenever hope flourished, so did our tortures". I had a great bond with someone, a connection much envied by this man. He was cold and empty and he could not form attachments, not with his family or wife or children.
All that coursed through him was ambition, and this empty man, like so many empty men--he was determined to make history. One day, he decided that the best way to do so was by discovering how to girls who love each other too much might react to being parted.
He tore us accordingly. I went to my cage, and she — — I did not know. All I knew was that before he installed me in my cage, he hobbled me at the ankles like an animal you want to keep but don't dare chase".
I could take the belief that it would never happen again. No one would know us as mischlinge. In that life, there would be no need for such a word.
A profoundly talented author! View all 44 comments. I was quite wary about starting "Mischling" having heard how powerful and harrowing it was from fellow readers.
What went on during the holocaust was without doubt inhumane, brutal and incomprehensible, however this book almost had a YA feel to it, so it tended to hold back just enough on the vivid brutalities.

I loved the start to the story, beginning with the identical twins still in the womb and the thoughts of what Stasha was feeling as she and her twin Pearl were about to leave the safety of their mother.
It then swiftly moves on to them arriving at Auschwitz at twelve years old and being selected by the infamous Dr Mengele for his 'zoo'. Part one of the book is set in the camp and the terrible experiments carried out on the unfortunate children.
It is during this part that Pearl goes missing during a musical concert and Stasha is devastated. Part two follows the liberation of the camp and Stasha, together with her friend Feliks go in search of her twin.
The story is told through Stasha's thoughts and emotions and we really get to feel her heartache and devastation when Pearl disappears.
I'm not one of a twin, I don't have a sister or even a brother, so I find it hard at times to understand the love and the connection one may have with a sibling.
However, through the author's vivid emotion and pure sentimentality I was able to sense what it must be like to have a twin and to feel as one body.
Although the prose was highly poetic and descriptive and was obviously written by an exceedingly talented and passionate author Affinity Konar I'm not sure the writing style was to my complete liking - maybe a bit too artistic and flowery.
This is just my opinion and from the amount of highly positive reviews I maybe in a minority. I would recommend this book, I do believe it's a story you need to read for yourself to form your own opinions, some will be more affected emotionally than others but without a doubt it is a powerful, emotional and harrowing read that really got to me and it's well worth a read.
View all 22 comments. Feb 05, Dianne rated it really liked it Shelves: best-of This book is based on Dr.
Josef Mengele's "Zoo" experiments at Auschwitz, in which he tortured and experimented on twins, dwarves, albinos and any other victims that struck his fancy as unusual or "special.
The strongest part of the book, for me, was the first part, which tells the story of year-old twins Pearl and Stasha. We come to know Auschwit Oh.
We come to know Auschwitz and "Uncle Doctor" Mengele through their eyes. Konar really nails the portrayal of Mengele; all the more chilling for his affected avuncular behavior toward his subjects.
Where I think the story dragged was in the aftermath of the liberation of Auschwitz. Several chance encounters towards the end turned this into more of a fairy-tale than I would have liked.
Why undo the powerful, wrenching first half with such unlikely resolutions? Like "Lilac Girls," many of the characters in this story are based on real people.
The tragedy is that Mengele escaped without consequence and justice was never realized for his victims. All we can do is re-tell these stories and listen to them with all our hearts, in the fervent hope that this never happens again.
Highly recommend. View all 31 comments. Nov 26, Kelli rated it really liked it. Mischling, you break my heart. With gorgeous prose, you pulled me into what I expected to be my best read of the year.
You introduced me to the heinous Josef Mengele and his atrocities in a way that focused heavily on his duplicity, while keeping the darkest, most graphic details of his unimaginably sadistic and unconscionable experiments largely out of the story.
I saw this as a gift. Enough was shared to make it clear: this man was soulless. Duality and division were themes carried throughout Mischling, you break my heart.
Duality and division were themes carried throughout the story but the story was neither compelling nor devastating to me. It absolutely should have ripped me apart but it didn't.
I had a visceral reaction to the existence of Mengele, I felt appreciation for the lyrical prose, but much of this seemed gauzy and ethereal to me, a little confusing and at times almost dull.
Beautifully written, the magical realism and the ending both disappointed me. I'm very conflicted. That darkest time in history continues to present hideous stories.
But if I'm honest, this story didn't hold my attention and truly lost me in the end. View all 16 comments. Dec 11, LeAnne: GeezerMom rated it liked it.
This sobering story of identical twin sisters interred at Auschwitz and subjected to Mengele's horrific experiments is somewhat a tough read. The reader is spared most of the nitty gritty details of his psychotic operations and vivisections, along with hints of the extremely high rate of executions.
We know that things went on but they are not described in detail or shown to us directly. Because the reader is shielded from gruesome details, this would be an excellent book for grades 6 and up.
Th This sobering story of identical twin sisters interred at Auschwitz and subjected to Mengele's horrific experiments is somewhat a tough read.
The tale focuses on the two little girls and those immediately around them, not on the perversions he inflicted.
My favorite character was one who was not featured prominently. She was the female "doctor" who assisted Mengele. She used her position to try to intervene on the behalf of his victims, to sometimes steal life quickly and painlessly in order to prevent torture and suffering - the darker aspects of her job are somewhat hidden in the book, but I have read about her elsewhere.
What a razor's edge this woman walked, and her sense of guilt after the camp was liberated was unimaginable. She of course is based on a real woman, as are many of the players in the story.
The author used two works of non-fiction as her primary research source. We do get tidbits that mostly are unheard of today - there is a room with eyeballs pinned to a wall, and most people don't know that those who had multi-colored eyes heterochromic were killed so that their eyes could be collected as rare oddities.
I've got mixed color eyes myself, and know that it is pretty unusual I believe the entire book to be quite historically accurate and appreciate that - so much historical fiction is seemingly slapped together.
This is a good launching point for those who want to further understand the suffering of people at the hands of the Nazis. Our young people today need to face this ugliness open eyed, lest we as a society forget.
With regard to the factual representations, this book unfortunately acted as a "diorama painting" for me. Do you recall those super elongate illustrations of, say, the Jurassic period, where a representation of every single living creature over that 45 million year chunk of time is there in a single painting?
Deep-sea ammonites are there with trilobites and pterodactyls and mosasaurs and probably 45 other known types of animals. SPOILER SPOILER SPOILER The book felt like it took all the major types of carnage wrought by Mengele including the eyeballs and his attempt to create Siamese twins , added in the female "doctor," the small people, other events at the camp, and "Uncle Doctor" loading boxes of paperwork into his car.
Then, when the author added in the death march, she also introduced the Jewish Resistance fighters, the rubber pill, peroxide-blonde hair dye to look Aryan, the parachutes, the Warsaw zoo, the Wiermacht soldiers in the salt mine, the photos in the newspaper, and more.
END OF SPOILERS All of the above things were absolutely true - but that the sisters were eye witness to every single one of them sort of took me away from the character-study of the girls.
It became way too far fetched. What also did not work so well for me - not content-wise, but writing-wise - were the three family-related coincidences that popped up I could swallow one, but three?
Ultimately, somehow I never felt an emotional tie to either of the young sisters. The book was split somewhat equally between their two perspectives and had rather short sections, so I'd just get going being inside one sister when the other one would take the floor, so to speak.
I also do not believe that identical twins feel one another's physical pain and do not believe that they have ESP. Some people do think so, and that's fine by me It is not that I don't feel deeply for the suffering and injustice and frustration and loss - it is just that not all stories about these awful things are conveyed as well for me as others.
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas, The Book Thief, City of Thieves, The Hunger Angel, Snow Falling on Cedars, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet, All the Light We Cannot See, and other works of historical fiction were truly gripping.
This particular book - for me - was not. For a first person account from one of the twins who was there, Surviving the Angel of Death: The Story of a Mengele Twin in Auschwitz might be an alternate choice.
At the age of 10, Eva and her sister Miriam were taken from the cattle car landing while their older siblings and parents were escorted immediately to the gas chamber.
When she was injected with a lethal infection, she crawled repeatedly over a period of days to a water faucet to drink and therefore, possibly stay alive.
Eva recounts that when one twin was intentionally infected and died, they immediately would slaughter her healthy identical so that the diseased body could be compared with the healthy one in simultaneous autopsies.
Eva did what she could to survive so that Miriam would not be killed. You might also heck out The Zookeeper's Wife for info on how the Warsaw Zoo and its gorgeous director's house was used to hide Jews in plain sight of the Nazis, passing themselves off as zoo staff and using a lot of peroxide to turn themselves blonde.
Lastly, if you've got your nerve up, read This Way for the Gas, Ladies and Gentlemen for something written by one of the male survivors of Auschwitz.
If you've read Mischling and remember them discussing "Canada" - the storage building for all the pilfered goods, this will resonate.
The author was a worker at "Canada" and like the twins, had a role to perform and therefore had his life spared. The book this young man wrote after the liberation is full of dark, bitter humor - the type gallows humor that those who did survive used to keep their sanity intact.
Three days after she gave birth to their baby, he committed suicide. The survivor's guilt got to him. He was 29 years old and killed himself with gas.
His book was amazing but unlike this one, not for middle school readers. View all 19 comments. May 24, Jill rated it it was amazing Shelves: best-of , inhumanity.
Mischling — the term was used during the Third Reich to characterize those who bore both Aryan and Jewish blood — is not for the faint of heart.
It is nightmarish and shattering. It is also — dare I use the term? It resists limpid sentimentality and the contortion of history and pays witness to the darkest of times from an entirely new perspective.
In short, I found the book to be astounding. Inspired by the non-fictional book Children of the Flame, Affinity Konar focuses on a partic Mischling — the term was used during the Third Reich to characterize those who bore both Aryan and Jewish blood — is not for the faint of heart.
Inspired by the non-fictional book Children of the Flame, Affinity Konar focuses on a particularly horrific ongoing Holocaust event: the torture and experimentation on twins by the Angel of Death, Dr.
Joseph Mengele. The heroines of this book are twins Pearl and Stasha, who divide the responsibilities of living between themselves.
Stasha takes on the funny, the future, the bad, while Pearl takes the sad, the past, the good. But it soon becomes evident that Stasha and Pearl are two halves of survival — the part that must cope with loss and despair and the part that against all odds, experiences wild hope that cannot be extracted from her or punctured by a needle.
The twinning of two young girls — of hope and despair, life and death, fortitude and triumph — is a theme that is interwoven throughout.
The narrative is told in alternate chapters by Stasha and then Pearl as they hauntingly describe how a hideous and morally stunted doctor tries to irreparably break the longing for attachment and destroy the most important part of living — the need to be close to another living being.
Auschwitz becomes not just a physical hellhole of despair, but also a state of mind. Auschwitz would end when Pearl returned.
Given the duality, it is not surprising that Ms. Konar decided to divide the book into two parts: the time together in Auschwitz and the move out of it in search of wholeness.
Who is alive and who is not? How will they learn to love the world again after experiencing its most base evils?

It's beautifully written but the subject matter is so horrific. Stasha and Pearl are twins that are part of Dr. While Konar tries to limit how graphically she describes some of these experiments, there is no escaping the gruesomeness.

Word in Definition. Holocaust and History p. First degree Mischinge, as the Nazi plan developed, were forbidden to marry either "true Germans" or second degree Mischlinge; and if they married Jews, they would by virtue of the Nuremberg blood law themselves be deemed Jewish, which to say the least was not a healthy status to assume voluntarily in the Third Reich.
They were thus encouraged, by Nazi social policy, to either remain single or to marry other Mischlinge of the first degree.
In this fashion their "Jewishness" would eventually be diluted in their descendants. Second degree Mischlinge did not suffer, for the most part, the racial persecution aimed at the Jews, the Nazis being content with a policy of assimilation for them.
