Description

The family has 3 daughters. One in the hospital, one young enough to escape the clutch of the Nazis

I promise too, Father. I promise to look after my sisters—I won’t let anyone hurt them, you know that.” What I can say is that this book is wonderfully written and is the true life story of Cibi, Magda and Livia Meller, three young Slovakian Jewish sisters who lived and survived against all odds the horror of the death camps in Auschwitz Germany during World War II.And how long will Magda stay in hospital?” asks Chaya. She turns to her father. “She won’t want to go, she won’t want to leave Livi. Don’t you remember, Father, when Cibi left, she made Magda promise she would look after their little sister.”

Warning - there is a major disconnect between the synopsis of this book and what it actually covers. My rating is based on what I hoped to get out of the book, not the quality of the book itself. The book itself was well written and expressive.

Heather Morris, author of The Tattooist of Auschwitz and Cilka’s Journey, has again adapted a true-life story in her new historical novel. As with the first two books, which I was very moved by, Three Sisters details the harrowing experiences of a family during wartime and beyond. From a loving, peaceful existence in Vranov to a horrendous period that continues to defy reason. And later in Israel, where survivors worked to rebuild their lives with the mental and visible scars serving as constant reminders of all that they had experienced and those they had lost.

As Vershinin speculates about the future transformation of society, Masha abruptly decides she’s staying for lunch. Not long after, Kulygin arrives and lavishes affection on his wife, Masha, who grumpily avoids him. As the others sit down to lunch, Irina confides in Tuzenbakh that Masha is unhappy with Kulygin. Tuzenbakh declares his love for Irina, but she doesn’t reciprocate. Andrey’s girlfriend, Natasha, arrives late and awkwardly dressed. When Chebutykin teases her at lunch, she runs out of the room. Andrey follows her, comforts her, and asks her to marry him.In 2014, the play was staged at the Southwark Playhouse, directed by Russell Bolam. The cast included Olivia Hallinan, Holliday Grainger and Paul McGann. Ivan Romanovich Chebutykin – Sixty years old and an army doctor, Chebutykin starts off as a fun, eccentric old man who exults in his place as family friend and lavishes upon Irina the expensive but inappropriate gift of a samovar. Later on in Act III, while drunk, he suffers an existential crisis and reveals to all about Natasha's and Protopopov's affair. In Act IV however, he seems to have come to terms with his crisis or perhaps been broken by it. He was in love, apparently unrequitedly, with the Prozorov siblings' mother, a married woman. A solid 4 stars for a book of courage in the face of incredible cruelty. This book is the story of 3 sisters, Cibi, Magda and Livi. They are living in Vranov, Slovakia, when the Germans invade. Prior to the invasion, their father calls them together in 1929 and makes them promise to always be there for one another. They are Jewish. Cibi and Livi are rounded up with other Jews and sent to Auschwitz in 1942. Magda has been hidden in the hospital by a friendly doctor. However, she too is found and sent to Auschwitz in 1944. One evening in February, everyone is coming to the house for a Carnival party. Masha and Vershinin arrive together; they have begun an affair. Irina and Tuzenbakh also arrive together, since Tuzenbakh walks Irina home each day from her job at the Telegraph Office. Irina hates her job and can’t wait to move to Moscow in June. Tuzenbakh and Vershinin discuss the meaning of life and happiness, Vershinin arguing that people must strive for eventual progress, even if they don’t live to see it. When it becomes clear that Natasha has canceled the night’s entertainment without consulting anyone, Andrey and Chebutykin go off to play cards, and Natasha sneaks off for a carriage ride with Protopopov, the head of the District Council. For those that have read the previous two books, there are brief appearances of Lale, Gita, and Cilka. I would say this can be read as a stand-alone though.
