An enthralling hour-by-hour account of the twelve days in 1865 between President Abraham Lincoln's assassination and the capture and death of his murderer, John Wilkes Booth. From 14th to 26th of April 1865, the hunt for Booth and his accomplices transfixed, thrilled and horrified a nation of mourners as Booth led the army on a wild chase through the swamps of Maryland and into the forests of Virginia. At the centre of the story is the ultimate anti-hero: John Wilkes Booth. A handsome stage actor, Booth was as famous in his day as any big Hollywood star today, but threw away his fame and wealth for an assassin's immortality. Manhunt tells the dramatic story through the eyes of the hunters and the hunters - and makes clear why Booth refused to be taken alive when at last he was cornered by the US cavalry.

Kinder im Ghetto: Ein kleines Mädchen spielt mit Staubflocken im Licht, das durchs Fenster fällt. Die grossen sind Vater und Mutter, die kleinen die Kinder. Sie hat sonst nichts zum Spielen. Ihre Puppe hat der Vater verkauft, damit es etwas zu essen gibt. Es herrscht Hunger im Ghetto von Lodz. Hier leben eine Viertelmillion Menschen. Und dann "verreisen" sie nach und nach. Vater und Mutter arbeiten, auch die 12-jährige Dora, die sich zwei Jahre älter ausgibt. So ist die 6-jährige Sylvia den ganzen Tag allein. Draussen ist es zu gefährlich. Die Nazis holen die Kinder ab. Erst eins nach dem andern, dann alle. Der Befehl lautet: Keine Kinder mehr im Ghetto. Ab jetzt beginnt ein gefährlicher Versteckparcours, den der Vater listenreich durchführt. Da er Mehl ausfährt, kennt er sämtliche Keller. Aus der Sicht des Kindes erzählt die Autorin die authentische Geschichte ihrer Tante, die nur durch den Zusammenhalt der 800 überlebenden Juden zusammen mit anderen elf Kindern hat gerettet werden können. Wie die Menschen dieses Grauen überleben konnten, das macht sehr betroffen. Unbedingt empfehlenswert! Ab 12 Jahren, *****, Bernadette Schröder.
