She is given a new name, Eva, and trained to become the perfect German citizen, to be the hope of Germany's future-and to forget she was ever a Czech girl named Milada. Inspired by real events, this fascinating novel sheds light on a little-known aspect of the Nazi agenda and movingly portrays a young girl's struggle to hold on to her identity and her hope in the face of a regime intent on destroying both.

My 12 year old son wanted me to read this book after he had read it for school. I appreciate how the book conveyed so much about the Nazi era and brought me into a town in Czechoslovakia that I was not familiar with and an aspect of the era I was not aware of. It was heartbreaking to realize how families were torn about and children adopted out, but the story of Milada’s resilience and reunion with some family was uplifting. An important and interesting story.

Just when I thought I knew everything about the Holocaust I come upon Someone Named Eva. I had no idea that Hitler was interested in collecting pure white children, brainwash them and turn them into Nazis.

Although the story of Eva is fictional, it is based on real facts. In 1942, children were taken by Nazis from Lidice, Czechoslovakia to a center in Poland to be trained indoctrinated into being proud German citizens. Once their training was over, they were giving over German families who adopted them.

This is the story of eleven-year-old Milada who after her "training" becomes Eva.
The story is a breeze to read: quick a lovely. It reminds me of Number the Stars in that they are both fiction works based on real events.

I found myself talking to my grandchildren about that tragic period in history. One only 11 years old, about the same age as the girl in this book. As I'm now 75 years I was profoundly sad explaining to them the facts of WW2. They picked right up on my feelings as they were most interested in the facts.

I loved this story! I couldn't help but be touched by the characters. It's an eye opener and would recommend this book to all!

Short and simply written true story about a young girl kidnapped and taken away from her family and forced to be part of the Lebensborn program begun by Hitler to breed and fill the world with blond blue-eyed Europeans. I've not seen the Lebensborn program (begun in 1935 Germany) so well described in any other book that I've read on this subject to date. Very, very informative.

Intriguing Holocaust story about a village in Poland and its experience under Hitler's Nazi regime. Told as historical fiction, the reality was one I had never before now read or knew about. For one who appreciates stories of the Holocaust, this is an excellent choice, well researched and written.

Beautiful book and appropriate for kids 12 and up depending on their sensitivity level. I'm excited for my daughters to read it!! I loved her other book about the Native American girl that is great for my 10 year old. Author does a wonderful job bringing these different world views and life perceptions to life.

I have gifted this book twice to 11-year old girls, both of whom loved it. (I love it, too.) My daughter's teacher asked me if this would be appropriate to read together in their 5th grade class and my answer is YES. In a time when the Hunger Games is all the rage, I think we need to read books like this to be reminded of the real world - a reality which can sometimes be darker and scarier than fiction because it actually happened! Secondly, what I like about this book (and others similar to it) is that it helps all of us understand that every European country was affected by WWII, not just Germany. This is a particularly big point in our family because my husband is Czech and our children are learning Czech and about Czech culture and heritage.
Stunning disturbing heart wrenching story, it is captivating from start to finish and all the more shocking knowing it is based on reality. I am still feeling the effects of reading someone named Eva.
