4. The Other Side of the Conflict: WW II Fiction (Festival Field Trip)
Inspired by a true story, Amanda West Lewis's new novel relates what life was like for a boy growing in World War II Germany. Her main character must navigate a difficult path between propaganda and truth, conscience and survival, as he struggles with poverty, loyalty, and duty. The novel sheds light on how indoctrination, propaganda, and insidious racism can undermine ones basic sense of morality, and Amanda discusses the importance of remembering how young lives are affected on both sides of a conflict.
