Orphans 88 is the story of Josh and the other war orphans in a Europe full of fire and blood. Josh is just twelve years old, but he already has a very heavy past, partially buried thanks to a life-saving amnesia. He knows he was liberated from the camps and the Lebensborn program, which consisted of wresting young children who corresponded to the Aryan model from their birth mothers in order to brainwash them in the Nazi ideology. But is he only German? Or Polish? Is his name really Josh? Through a series of encounters—with, among others, a kind woman named Ida who runs the orphanage, and Wally, a young black American      soldier fighting the racism of his fellow countrymen—Josh will gradually rediscover where he came from, who he is, and then be able to decide where to go from there… A gripping and extremely well-researched novel that lifts the veil on a little-known side of the postwar period and the fate of the children who were torn from their families for the Lebensborn program.
