    • I went back and forth about whether to give this book 4 or 5 stars. The writing, told by a 13 year old girl in diary entry form is very engaging. The story of the friendship isn’t quite as compelling as the tv movie based on this book (that I saw many years ago) but is still depicted in an emotionally moving way. This was a very fast read for me, mostly because I didn’t want to put it down. The author escaped as a child from Nazi occupied Vienna and this is an autobiographical novel; the 200 [...]

    • The Devil in Vienna is based around a sturdy friendship that was thought to be unbreakable. Inge Dornenwald is a 13 year-old Jewish girl living through hard times. Lieselotte’s and Inge have been best friends since they were young but now their friendship is on the verge of falling. Their country sags to its lowest point and their hearts sink with it. Lieselotte and Inge’s parents are at totally opposite sides. Lieselotte’s entire family are for Hitler. Her brother being a Nazi and her fat [...]


    • If someone like Hitler came to power here and now, how would you feel? What would you think and do?Those are the questions Doris Orgel examines in The Devil in Vienna. The story takes place in 1930’s Vienna, where Inge and Lieselotte have been best friends since third grade when they discovered they shared the same birthday. Inge comes from a non-religious Jewish family and Lieselotte is Catholic, but that never seemed to matter. Then Hitler rose to power in Germany, Lieselotte’s father join [...]


    • This book is a very good book. It is about a Fourteen year old girl named Inge who has been friends with her best friend Lieselotte ever since they started school together. The only problem is that Inge is Jewish and Lieselotte's dad is a Nazi. The Friendship all changes when lieeslotte dad decides to move her whole family out of Austria and into Germany to the Nazi headcourters.

    • In “Devil in Vienna”, two girls stay in touch during World War 2 despite everything that is happening around them. The book begins with Inge’s diary. The whole book is set in Inge’s diary. Inge and Lieselotte are friends, but Lieselotte’s father is a Nazi, while Inge is Jewish. Lieselote’s father does not allow the friendship to continue, and Lieselotte moves to another city. Over the next few months Inge writes to Lieselotte in hope that she will write to her back but after a while [...]


    • Inge and Lieselotte are best friends during World War 2. They've known each other for almost thirteen years of their life. They do everything together, they tell each other everything, and the coolest thing is that they also share the same birthday. But things start to change, when Hitler starts to conquer places. Inge is a Jewish girls and Lieselotte is a Nazi's daughter. Which means that soon they won't be able to stick together, and they might even have to separate. I am not done reading this [...]


    • Inge Dornenwald and Lieselotte Vessely are best friends in 1938 Vienna, Austria. But the world is changing, with Hitler rising to power throughout Europe. Because Inge is Jewish and Lieselotte is Catholic, their parents forbid the girls to see each other. Inge misses Lieselotte when the Vesselys move to Munich and wonders why Lieselotte never writes. In the meantime, she plays with upstairs-Evi, looks forward to being a bridesmaide in Mitzi's wedding, and observes the adults nervously reacting t [...]


    • The devil in Vienna is a book about two best friends. Their names are Inge Dornewald and Lieselotte Vessely. Lieselotte is Catholic, but Inge is Jewish. Lieselotte's father forces her family to move so that he can assist Hitler. Liesellotte, against her will, becomes a Hitler youth. She and Inge write letters, but finally they meet again when Liesollette's father has to travel for business. Liesollette takes Ingo to a hidden church, where a priest is giving Jews baptism certificates and allowing [...]


    • This book has been sitting on my bookshelf for many years, and I finally got around to reading it. It is the story of a Jewish girl and her best friend growing up in the 1930s in Austria. Inge, the heroine, writes down the daily happenings of her life as the Nazis take over Austria and her relationship with Leislelotte grows more and more difficult to maintain. The book's strong point is the strong themes of family and friendship. Would I recommend this book for a unit on the Holocaust? No. But [...]


    • I always thought of this book as a holocaust book, but after a recent re-read, I've come to realize that it's really more of a pre-holocaust book. Although it was written for tweenagers or teenagers, the book is well written and interesting enough to keep the attention of adults. (At least in my opinion. It could be that I only feel this way because I read it in childhood, like having a taste for New Kids on the Block.)In any case, the characters are interesting and the historical context is an [...]


    • An excellent story with much insight into the kid's side of WWII and Hitler's takeover of Austria. Learned of this because of an old (late '80s/early '90s?) Disney movie called "Friendship in Vienna" based fairly well on this story. (A rare exception where the movie is as good as the book.) A couple touchy parts for my pre-teen son (the creepy guy in the tunnel, and heaven forbid, girls getting their periods) but something I'd like him to read soon while they're still studying WWII in school.


    • Some will dismiss this book because it is not a 'real' WWII/holocaust diary, instead a fictionalized account. However, Orgel clearly did her research and the story is highly compelling. It is entirely believable that these girls existed, and that their trials indeed occurred. The book is well written, and if anything, that it is fiction makes it a better starter book for young teens exploring history of this time because it will not have the crushing effect of Anne Frank et al.


    • This book is very good and written in great detail. I was expecting more story about the actual Holocaust, however this was right when Hitler was beginning to take over Austria. A young girl writes her point of view about her family and friends. I think this book would be good for a upper elementary or middle school student to read and understand what the author was trying to get across to the reader.


    • I really like these types of books (about World War II), but I don't exactly how I feel about this book. I think it was trying to emphasize on the friendship, which was nice, but there wasn't much action because of it. It was kinda sad to know that she would never see Liselotte again, but she took it in good stride and I'm proud of her because of that, because you know, I don't think I could handle it as well as she could.


    • Inge Dornenwald is Jewish, and Liselotte Versely's father is a Nazi, but the thirteen-year-old girls are still best friends, even though their parents disapprove of their friendship. In 1937 Austria, their friendship has even become dangerous, but the girls struggle to stay friends in secret, as the Dornenwald family works desperately to escape from occupied Austria. Suspenseful and well written, portraying the perceptions of a young girl with a deft touch.


    • Ovo mi je bila jedna od omiljenih knjiga kad sam imala 7-8 godina, i jedva čekam da mi se priži prilika da je ponovo pročitam. Ne znam, možda užasi rata koje knjiga opisije nisu pogodni za jako malu decu, ali ova knjiga je pre svega o prijateljstvu, i zbog toga je divna. Neverovatno je šta sam sve čitala usled svoje tadašnje opsednutosti Drugim svetskim ratom, tu je stvarno bilo svačega, ali mi je drago, jer da nije bilo tako, verovatno nikad ne bih pronašla ovu knjigu.


    • I am reading the book Devil in Vienna.So far I learned that the city believes in the devil and that everybody ends up seeing him.My opinion is that the book is interesting however also confusing.If you like books that are about mysterious you should read this book.I hope to learn about it and becomes easier and simple and for you to.


    • An excellent read. The voice of the narrator is a fresh look on the WWII novel as a whole. The only thing that was hard for me were two characters with similar names, Mutti (her mother,) and her maid, Mitzi. Sometimes I had to reread parts over.



    • great book and a perfect example of what life was like in the 2nd world war longtime friends torn apart by hate and anger


    • This one was really great. Basically a young girl's view of Vienna from the perspective of losing her best friend. Kind of a tear-jerker at points. Again, overall, really good!


    • I really liked this. I have been a big Orgel fan for years, but didn't read this one when it came out. Very nicely done, good for late elem, early middle school girls.
