A Time to Love and a Time to Die

See all books by Erich Maria Remarque. While in search of his parents he meets Elizabeth Kruse, the daughter of his doctor when he was child or something like that, I don't remember clearly how he knows the doctor. Elizabeth is a strong girl, also just over twenty or even nineteen actually, she is just a true survivor.

Not once in the entire book I got annoyed or anything, she had exceptional strength. Anyway, she too is trying to reach and save her father because was taken to a lager and is being held there as a prisoner. So the two meet and try to stay alive as much as they can while they slowly fall in love. I would also like to exclude Professor Pohlmann, Ernst old teacher two hides Jewish people in his home. He just had so many good lines in the book, you know that one character that gives the main character tips on how to live and not how to become or let anyone make you into something else?

Yup well that was Professor Pohlmann. At his home we also meet Joseph, a Jewish man who is afraid of Ernst at first but they eventually share a deep conversation and you get to see that Joseph too had a bright future but now understands that there is nothing for him anymore. I also want to talk about two soldiers from Ernst unit - Hirschland and Steinbrenner.

They were the complete oppose of how the war affected men who had to go and fight for no reason. While Steinbrenner represented the soldiers who raped, killed and destroyed everything in their way in the name of their country and leaders, Hirchland represented the ones who understood that this war will never be won and he actually commits suicide because he just cannot live with himself knowing what he was forced to do. As I said there are other very good characters in the book, but these were the ones that remained with me.

As mentioned before they fall in love in the middle of chaos, in the middle of world ending and I have to say their love brought me so much tears I literally had to put the book down to cry. Even going on a date was horrible because bombs were falling down, people were being shot and killed next to them, but it still made me feel so full of hope because even during such a horrible time something so innocent like love blossomed.

True love didn't fear any war and I mean you could truly understand how they loved each other. So after they get married, we actually understand that they have only two weeks together and within those two weeks they share, what it seems, a life time together. I like a particular scene when Ernst says something like 'If I knew this wasn't bombs blowing it would be actually beautiful'.

You really see how these two people love each other by the way they take care of each other. Nobody knows if they are dead or alive. As his leave draws to a close, Graeber reaches out to Elisabeth, a childhood friend.

Like him, she is imprisoned in a world she did not create. But in a time of war, love seems a world away. And sometimes, temporary comfort can lead to something unexpected and redeeming. Get A Copy.
