We are reading Friedrich by Hans Peter Richter.
It is a poignant story of two boys, friends living in the same house. They are the same age, one is German and one Jewish. We can see how the rise of Nazism in 1930s Germany affected them both.
Hans Peter Richter wrote his novel ‘Friedrich’ in the style of a memoir. It is about two German families, who live in the same apartment house. It is the story of friendship of the non-Jewish narrator and his Jewish neighbours.
‘Friedrich’ begins in 1925, when the narrator is four years old, and ends in 1942, when he is 17. It takes place during the period when the Nazis came to power and into the early years of World War II. As the events and incidents unfold, told from a boy’s point of view, we see the confusion and misunderstanding about the changes in society under the Nazis, and wonder who, if anyone, attempted to understand where things were heading.
