It's 1944 when the twin sisters arrive at Auschwitz with their mother and grandfather. In their benighted new world, Pearl and Stasha Zagorski take refuge in their identical natures, comforting themselves with the private language and shared games of their childhood. As part of the experimental population of twins known as Mengele's Zoo, the girls experience privileges and horrors unknown to others, and they find themselves changed, stripped of the personalities they once shared, their identities altered by the burdens of guilt and pain. That winter, at a concert orchestrated by Mengele, Pearl disappears. Stasha grieves for her twin, but clings to the possibility that Pearl remains alive. When the camp is liberated by the Red Army, she and her companion Feliks - a boy bent on vengeance for his own lost twin - travel through Poland's devastation. Undeterred by injury, starvation, or the chaos around them, motivated by equal parts danger and hope, they encounter hostile villagers, Jewish resistance fighters, and fellow refugees, their quest enabled by the notion that Mengele may be captured and brought to justice within the ruins of the Warsaw Zoo. As the young survivors discover what has become of the world, they must try to imagine a future within it.

The memoirs of a German girl who became a leader among the Hitler Youth while her Social Democratic family kept from her the secret of her partial Jewish heritage.
MISCHLING: Ein Kind sucht seine Identität. Das ist nicht einfach, denn der Vater ist Jude, die Mutter stammt aus einer deutschnationalen Familie. Als nichtjüdisch bei den einen, als Schandfleck bei den anderen ist das Kind überall ein Außenseiter. Das Leben im Nachkriegsösterreich war geprägt von der geheimen Immernochakzeptanz des Nationalsozialismus, die bis heute besteht und beim „richtigen“ Anlass wie eine Pestbeule aufbricht. Die Geschichte spielt in Kärnten, aber dieses Kärnten ist überall ... Bei einem Israel-Aufenthalt lernt das Kind den Kibbuzarzt Rosen, ein Naziopfer wie der Vater des Kindes, kennen. Es kehrt aber heim und heiratet einen Deutschen, der verschweigt, dass sein Vater bei der SS war. Die Schwiegermutter propagiert die „Auschwitzlüge“. Die Ehe zerbricht, Rosen kommt zu Besuch und bittet das Kind, mit ihm zu kommen und argumentiert mit dem alttestamentarischen „Buch Ruth“ (Ruth war keine Jüdin, wurde aber Stammmutter des Hauses David). Schließlich befreit sich das Kind aus der Verstrickung seiner Eltern, bleibt bei Rosen, nimmt den Namen Ruth und die Identität einer Jüdin an. Das Buch ist ein Roman, dessen Wesen der wahre Kern ist. Unterdrückte Wahrheit findet irgendwann ihren Weg ans Licht.
