dino who loves prunes, tea and

Springer.
My Hebrew Dinosaurus can
be enjoyed as both a book and
coloring book.
Also new for children: Don't
Forget (Tambourine) by Patri-
cia Lakin and Ted Rand.
As the story begins, a girl
named Sarah sets off to buy in-
gredients she needs to make a
surprise birthday cake for her
mother. Her last stop is the
Singers' store — a place she pur-
posely avoids. She feels uncom-
fortable seeing the numbers
tattooed on Mr. and Mrs.
Singers' arms.
But as Sarah enters the store,
Mrs. Singer tells her of a special
cake she once made, too. And she
recommends a secret ingredient
certain to make the treat unfor-
gettable.
Patricia Lakin is a native of
Roxbury, Mass., where many of
the shopkeepers in her neigh-
borhood were Holocaust sur-
vivors. Ted Rand's illustrations
have appeared in The New York
Times, Sports Illustrated and
The New Yorker.
n Stones From the River
(Poseidon Press), Ursula Hegi
returns to Burgdorf, the small
German community she de-
picted in Floating in My Moth-
er's Palm.

I

Her focus in this latest novel
is a small German community
before, during and after World
War II. The protagonist is Tru-
di Montag, the dwarf (and
daughter of an alcoholic moth-
er) who is often cruel, yet proves
to be surprisingly sane as the
world around her falls to mad-
ness.
Trudi becomes the town's li-
brarian. An outsider because of
her deformity, she loves gossip
and does not hesitate to exploit
her talent for finding out
everyone's secrets. But as
Hitler comes to power, Trudi
also is a woman who protects
those who have been kind to her
— including two Jewish fami-
lies.
tefan Kuhl's The Nazi
Connection: Eugenics,
American Racism and
German National So-
cialism (Oxford University
Press) considers the interna-
tional ties in the eugenics move-

S

ment and reveals the truth
about the connection between
the Nazi "racial hygiene" pro-
gram and American eugenicists
(those who advocate "improving"
the population through forced
sterilization and marriage con-
trol).
Based on extensive research
including letters between scien-
tists in both countries, Mr. Kuhl
documents American scientists'
admiration of Hitler's policies on
sterilization, and shows how the

My Hebrew
Dinosaurus also

features the
exercising Boker
Tovatops, the
dinosaurs' answer
to Jane Fonda.

Nazis regarded American eu-
genics as a model for their own
plans.
In The Nazi Connection, Mr.
Kuhl reports on the American
eugenicists who traveled to Ger-
many to study the Nazi laws, the
U.S. scientists who gave their
names and research to German
race journals, and the importa-
tion of a Nazi pro-
paganda film for
use in the United
States.
Mr. Kuhl, a soci-
ologist and his-
torian at the Uni-
versity of Bielefeld
in Germany, began
writing his book fol-
lowing his work
with mentally dis-
abled persons,
"which piqued my
interest in how the
mentally ill were treated in the
past." Among his early findings:
"The United States had played
an important role as a model of
a country in which eugenic ster-
ilizationand immigration were
to some degree successfully im-
plemented."
he new One Foot Ashore
(Walker and Co.) by
Jacqueline Dembar
Greene follows the path of
Maria Ben Lazar, a young Jew-
ish girl kidnapped from her par-
ents and sent to Brazil to be
raised a Catholic.
Maria manages to escape by
stowing away aboard a ship to
Amsterdam, where she hopes to
be reunited with her parents and
sister, Isobel.
Incorporating historical facts
of the time, One Foot Ashore also
chronicles the friendship be-

T

tween Maria and the Dutch
painter Rembrandt van Rijn,
who helps the girl search for her
family. Li
