About the Book
Brothers is the story of two young German boys growing up in pre-WWII Germany. The year is 1937 during Hitler's reign of Germany. It is a time of great turbulence and strife. The brothers, Hans and Danny, develop opposing ideologies about the Nazi Reich as a result of their different life experiences and temperaments. The older brother, Hans, is coerced into becoming an SS officer, while his younger brother, Danny, joins a covert resistance movement. This is the story of how the boys learn how to handle this dichotomy. It is a story of love, loyalty, and courage. Finally, this is a story about Fritz, one remarkable dog, who is the personification of all of those characteristics.

Brothers is an historical fiction story that can be enjoyed by anyone from age 13 on up. Due to its rich vocabulary and content it was not designed for younger readers. The story covers many themes, including The Power of One, Bullying, Brotherhood, and True Courage.

Being a retired teacher, I originally wrote and designed Brothers to be used by teachers in their classrooms to teach both about the Holocaust as well as to be used to teach reading comprehension. I have created a teachers' and parents' guide that can be obtained at a separate fee of $10.00 that will guide teachers and parents through the chapters with appropriate higher order thinking discussion questions. To obtain a copy email me at brothersbysusan@hotmail.com. It is a 30 page guide complete with vocabulary, graphic organizers, and culminating projects to complete.
