"Fanny 13-year-old commander" tears in France → Switzerland escaping play of a young girl, Haraharaddokidoki, even if he / she reads an adult
from Syria or from Myanmar.
The image that refugees desperately escape from the country is tightened.
Let's say what will these children do from now when it becomes a young child. I will be driven by such desperate thoughts.
More than 70 years ago from now, a girl of just 13 years has escaped from France to Switzerland with children.
The girl's name is Fanny.
And this is one that I finished.
"Fanny 13-year-old commander"
Certainly it is fun.
It is interesting to the ballistic.
To tell the truth, I was slightly looking at this book sweetly.
For teens, the letters are big. The display is pretty, and it does not mean that it's such a heavy story. It is impressive.
No, it is a terrible misunderstanding.
Funny Ben – Ami.
This 13 – year – old girl has tremendous courage, wisdom, and the momentum will benefit.
Cold as well as a spy movie scene, there are scenes, cruel execution and neck corpses come out.
This book is not only a moving true story, but also a terribly interesting one.
I thought it would be fine for France
August 1939, France. Fanny's family was hit by despair.
Born in Russia they escaped the communist and went to Germany. However, he was persecuted by the Nazis because he was a Jew, and he was living in France.
My parents and Fanny and his sisters lived quietly.
That life suddenly stabilizes.
One day, Fanny and his father saw a funeral row of executives of the French Communist Party. My father smiled a little when I heard that the song of "International" was flowing.
I remembered Russia in my hometown.
It was unexpectedly seen by neighbors and was admonished as a "communist".
Fanny's father was suddenly taken away in the middle of the night.
Even though I thought it would be fine in France! And the lamenting family.
Why is this happening …?
To the grieving Funny, the mother speaks.
"It is sometimes called a foreigner, and it is subject to slander not being told"
I felt relieved for this exchange.
Is not it still possible fear?
Fanny listened carefully to adult conversation while young and tried to find out what was going on.
"If the war starts, we will not be left alone, it will be a trouble"
With such adult's words heard, Fanny feels uneasy.
The war was surely approaching her.
What is Child's House in Chaumont Castle …?
In order to avoid imminent persecution, Fanny took two younger sisters and leave them to "child's house" of the Child Relief Society.
Surprisingly this was Chaumont castle.
Speaking of Chaumont Castle, Catherine de Medicis was the love affair of her husband after death Dianne de Poitiers . It is said that it was a violent castle where the curse tools were packed tightly.
It was a place where about 70 children got together.
Fannies went to a school in a nearby village.
Even though the villagers knew that they were Jews, they did not see it.
Funny has curiosity and possesses various knowledge.
Some of them also related to medicinal herbs.
Born leadership, curiosity, high intelligence. Such features of her will be useful later.
1942, early summer.
The three-year peace has been easily broken. The new priest who came to the village advertised the secret of the castle.
"The German Army will come!"
All the children are hidden by neighboring farms, the castle is empty in July.
Experience in this castle will be useful later.
While reading forward, Fanny is surprised at why he is so smart and knowledgeable, but the reason is written in this book properly.
a brave girl rescues resistance
Fannies left Chaumont castle, reunited with their mothers, staying in the city of Megeve.
One day, Fanny goes to that place alone because his sister has left behind.
Funny that is full of beards and is found in a suspicious man with a gun. Fanny who was rigid by tension finally makes a mouth.
"You guys, resistance?"
Fanny is impressed to the man who answers, yes.
"Well, do you also want to fight the German opponent?"
Resistance to recruit a 13 year old girl freely and casually.
This is a real story is amazing.
Fanny who responds immediately here is a considerable degree of gratitude.
Thus Fanny would continue the duties to deliver the bread containing the letter to the resistance every day. Moreover, it is secret to mother.
While such a small girl, I will beat up with outstanding suitability for resistance.
Those who survive are those who are still good at turning points.
On another day, when I noticed the village bakery was on the German side, I got out of the bed at night and ignored the overnight exit, and reported to the resistance hiatus.
A girl alone alone in the night … ….
This place will be made to be something so irresistible.
While thinking that Funny will not die here, is it okay with such a dangerous thing? It is no longer a tension similar to a spy novel.
But how important was that activity?
It will be obvious long afterwards.
Know the time from the position of the sun and explore the place from the position of the star
August. Funny guys will be sent to Switzerland from the Child Relief Society.
A woman, Mrs. Salon, took care of himself, Fanny left the mother separately.
However, unexpected things happen.
The leader's 17-year-old boy got off at the station on the way, worrying about the sick parent.
On behalf of 13, Fanny was to lead 11 children.
I learned how to read the map learned at Chaumont castle, to know the time from the position of the sun, to know the place from the position of the star.
With such knowledge and courage, innate leadership, Fanny will lead the children.
Sometimes you get on the corner of a freight train and return to searching for a sister with your sister …… Fanny will continue traveling while writing what happened to the little note.
Funnies finally reached near the Swiss border at the track.
Finally it will be saved by this! And, thinking … … how much is sent to prison!
Hunger and thirst, fears who are scared of being anxious.
The gendarmeres threaten them with "say the name of their parents!"
Fanny will teach my sister a pseudonym that is not a Jewish style.
Until someone breaks his mouth.
But all the children were silent.
Children who share confectionery, surpass hunger, be healthy.
Altogether other children joined together, 28 people in total.
"Let's give their children the last meal"
The gendarmers tried not to give the children even food.
Funny men take turns, they appreciate hunger for friendly female officials and get some food.
But she talks about terrible sightings.
The Jews at the station were pushed into livestock vehicles until the elderly and children and were being escorted.
What kind of terrible things will happen in the future.
Funny will feel dark.
Moreover, I hear the nurse's conversation.
"Shall I give the children their last meal?"
"Well, I will feel better if I do so, I will quiet."
There are armed guards outside the room that was pushed in. Will it be taken away as it is, taking the last meal with him as it is?
After this, Fanny is going to make a great escape from the place of dinner!
Please check this book by all means to develop sweat that hands.
Amidst the desperate pinch, I am amazed by the decision Fannie has taken down and its tactics. Children did as much as they could and connect hope to living.
Huge expenses are required to return to France
Funny guys who fled to Switzerland with other children with courage and tact. Though they believed that there is a future in Switzerland, they do not have permission to stay at school.
I am disappointed that it is something that such a wonderful girl can do such a thing often.
Thus, waiting for Fanny who came back to France again was a test and a huge cost for applying for naturalization.
Fanny will encounter a certain person when it depressed and comes out from the office.
It was a resistance young man. He intersects the office, interrogating why the girl who saved the life of 150 resistance lives must pay for naturalization.
The courage of Funny was rewarded like this.
Imagine a refugee's journey!
It was this word that I wanted to shout out loud after I finished reading this book and closing it.
"Imagine a refugee's journey!"
How difficult and difficult it is? I do not even know the way to go.
Fanny wrote that it knows the time and place in the position of the sun and the stars.
If it is present, it will be possible with the GPS function of the smartphone.
Because of smart phones for luxury goods, things that tend to be difficult to put on are refugees with clothes haze as it is carried around with jeze.
But is that so?
For modern people the smartphone should be equal to the map and bearing magnet. Rather, refugees need smartphones!
I wanted to say so to those who say "refugees are smart."
People who appear in this book are also the same without compassion.
The principal who does not give Swiss school stay permission to Funny, the French office that demands huge money for application for naturalization …… I thought why I do that.
Although there are circumstances that everyone suffered after the war, it is not so sad.
One book that rocks the hearts of adults who are not story at all at all
What is shocking is that Fanny's journey has not been outdated at all.
Even now refugees and children of immigrants are rejected by document examination and sent out of the country, or even they are said to not even exist in the first place.
There is still a reality that the people crossing the border with suffering are suffering.
As Fanny's mother lamented, he also faces the reality of being "slandered just by being a foreigner."
Fanny in this book, with a straight-hearted girl-like mind, bothered those people and shrugged his heart.
Even now after more than 70 years, her appeal shakes the hearts of those who read it.
Until such a tragedy's journey becomes past, it will take years to go.
One tearful book that an adult reads while talking to teens.
A movie titled "Girl Funny and Fate of Fate" based on this book is also open now.
