Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

'Sarah's trials are so riveting, her innocence so absorbing, the book is hard to put down.' (Starred review) (Publishers' Weekly)

Masterly and compelling, it is not something that readers will quickly forget. Highly recommended. (Library Journal)

'A gripping story of loss, family secrets and silence' (Warwickshire Telegraph)

Présentation de l'éditeur

Released in 2010 as a major motion picture starring Kristin Scott Thomas.

Paris, July 1942. Sarah, a ten year-old Jewish girl, is arrested by the French police in the middle of the night, along with her mother and father. Desperate to protect her younger brother, she locks him in a cupboard and promises to come back for him as soon as she can.

Paris, May 2002. Julia Jarmond, an American journalist, is asked to write about the 60th anniversary of the Vel' d'Hiv' - the infamous day in 1942 when French police rounded up thousands of Jewish men, women and children, in order to send them to concentration camps. Sarah's Key is the poignant story of two families, forever linked and haunted by one of the darkest days in France's past. In this emotionally intense, page-turning novel, Tatiana de Rosnay reveals the guilt brought on by long-buried secrets and the damage that the truth can inflict when they finally come unravelled.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The best novel I've ever read? 28 mai 2014
This may well be the best novel I've ever read.

I had seen the movie in the theatre when it was first released, and had loved it.

When I finally got around to reading the book, I was amazed at the eauthor's ease with words. She writes the way I drink. And I drank in her words effortlessly. And as with a good drink on a hot and sunny day, she left me wanting more...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Sarah's Key 1 octobre 2013
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
J'ai vu d'abord le filme en français, le livre en anglais (très facile à lire) est un complément parfait.
J'ai bien aimé, l'alternance du passé au présent, accentué par deux types de police d'impression différents.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Très bon roman 23 décembre 2010
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
un très bon roman dont l'architecture de l'histoire est très bien pensée: deux parcours de vies séparés au début qui se rejoignent par l'intermédiaire de la journaliste/narratrice et qui ne font plus qu'un.L'intrigue est menée à la façon d'une histoire policière où se mêlent en plus de l'investigation sur la vie de Sarah des questions sociétales contemporaines.Une technique narrative qui rappelle Virginia Woolf. Roman lu en anglais après avoir vu le film qui est très fidèle à l'histoire. Le titre "Sarah's key"(à double sens en Anglais) est plus "puissant" que "Elle s'appelait Sarah".

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A unique novel that centers around a tragic incident in WW II France 8 février 2008
Par Z Hayes - Publié sur
July 1942 marked a dark period in the history of France where thousands of Jewish families were rounded up and forcibly kept in the Velodrome d'Hiver. They were then sent off to transit camps in France such as Drancy, before being packed off to Auschwitz, a Nazi death camp. What is so unnerving about this whole incident is that the rounding up and mobilisation of Jews for deportation was done by the French authorities.

Based upon this seldom mentioned, little known piece of French history, author Tatiana de Rosnay has crafted a well-written novel that alternates between the past in 1942, and the present. The past centers around a 10 year old Jewish girl Sarah Strazynski who is forced to go to the Velodrome d'Hiver with her mother and father, innocently leaving behind a 4 year old brother Michel locked in a secret cupboard with the assurance that she would return to let him out when it was safe.

The present revolves around writer Julia Jarmond, a transplanted American who is married to a frenchman and finds herself being consumed by the story of the Vel d'Hiv incident. As she digs deeper, she uncovers dark secrets surrounding her husband's family which are connected to the deportations of Jews from France. As the truth emerges, the author deftly handles the question of guilt caused by supressed secrets and how the truth can sometimes not only bring about pain and disrupt the regularity of life, yet also have the ability to heal and move forwards into the future.

The method employed by the author, which alternates between the past [1942] and the present is an effective tool for it ties both periods together and brings the story to a satisfying conclusion. I do confess though that I found the story of the past much more dramatic and interesting than the one which deals with Julia in the present. On the whole though, it was an engrossing read and I would recommend it, especially to those interested in the genre. I'd also recommend the following books which deal with the Holocaust and France:
The Holocaust, the French, and the Jewsby Susan Zuccoti (non-fiction)
One Step Ahead of Hitler: A Jewish Child's Journey Through Franceby Fred Gross(memoir)
France: The Dark Years, 1940-1944 (Modern World)by Julian Jackson (non-fiction and more for those already familiar with the history of the period)

There is also a movie adaptation of the novel starring Kristin Scott-Thomas, Sarah's Key

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Reliving History 27 septembre 2008
Par Roger Brunyate - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit (De quoi s'agit-il?)
In the first half of this book, two stories interlace with each other in short alternating chapters. Sarah Starzynski, a ten-year-old Parisian girl born to Jewish parents, is captured in the round-up of June 16, 1942, and imprisoned with almost 10,000 others in an indoor cycling arena, the Vélodrome d'Hiver, awaiting transportation to Auschwitz. When the police arrive, she has just time to hide her younger brother in a concealed closet in their apartment, locking him in and promising to return. Sixty years later, Julia Jarmond, an American journalist married to a Frenchman, researching for a story on the "Vél d'Hiv," stumbles on the trail of Sarah's family, and becomes obsessed with trying to discover her fate. She is struck by the fact that the round-up and subsequent disposal was carried out, not by the Gestapo, but by ordinary French policemen, enabled by a citizenry that for the most part looked the other way. A coincidental discovery leads her to question the involvement of her husband's family at the time and to re-examine her own marriage.

Apart from this one coincidence that one has to grant for the sake of the novel, Tatiana de Rosnay mostly avoids melodrama, excessive sentiment, or plot surprises. Sarah's story may be merely a variant on the Holocaust narrative often told before, but its child's-eye viewpoint gives it a moving authenticity, and the short chapters keep it bearable. Especially touching are the glimpses of individual concern and kindness among the general indifference of the French people; the novel honors those unsung saints and heroes who put aside their fear to help in individual ways.

At the half-way point, however, de Rosnay is forced to give up Sarah's direct narrative, telling her story solely through what Julia Jarmond is able to discover about her. Julia is an attractive character, a woman in her forties trying to balance the demands of profession, motherhood, and marriage, while retaining her independence as a foreign female in a chauvinistic society; her story could make an interesting novel all on its own. But it cannot possibly compete with the searing truth of the Holocaust, and for the first half of the book it makes no attempt to do so. When the side-by-side narrative ends, we are indeed invested in Julia's personal concerns, but may feel uneasy about it, as though her questions of personal identity and romance are trivial compared to the horror of where the book started. To de Rosnay's credit, she does not try to tie everything up in an implausibly neat ending, but she cannot stop the book from thinning out at the end, although the final pages are touching and suitably unresolved.

Any novel dealing with the Holocaust is full of echoes of other books. De Rosnay's portrayal of Parisians under occupation chimes perfectly with the picture in SUITE FRANCAISE by Irène Nemirovsky, who herself suffered the same fate as Sarah's family. The transit camps and deportation of French Jews feature in Sebastian Faulks' CHARLOTTE GRAY. And the story of an American in France looking into an earlier time somewhat resembles THE VIRGIN BLUE by Tracy Chevalier, an author whom De Rosnay apparently admires. Readers who enjoyed any one of these would probably appreciate SARAH'S KEY, a book that stands up well to all but the first of them.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Story has great potential, but ultimately not fufilling 26 juillet 2007
Par S. Hanson - Publié sur
The theme and historical context of this book is certainly compelling and the moral issues raised by the story, though familiar, are still intriguing. However, once the key elements of Sarah's story are revealed, the book looses steam and we are left with the banal life crisis facing our journalist narrator who comes off frequently as more than a little spineless, letting the people around her direct the flow of her thoughts and actions. The angst of modern life over-shadows past tragedy. Most of the author's characters seem stereotyped, merely cardboard cut-outs who are ill-suited to the task of explicating the difficult gray areas between good and evil. When Joshua, Julia's editor, points out to her the fact that she has left out one whole side of Sarah's difficult story, he might as well be describing this novel. It never really does address the issues of responsibility and moral culpability in any deep and meaningful way. When Sarah's voice disappears from the narrative, the book looses its psychological edge and Julia's subsequent quest seems to lack real purpose. The confrontations which do take place towards the end of the novel are not the one's a reader might be anticipating and ultimately, leave the reader feeling unsatisfied and disappointed. Read this book to learn more about the Jewish experience in occupied France but don't expect to be challenged--this book doesn't take readers anywhere near the true tragedy symbolized by Sarah's key.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A Tale of Two Authors 17 octobre 2009
Par Jane Wittbrodt - Publié sur
This book seems to have two different authors. The first writes a poignant, riveting story based on an important event in history. De Rosnay weaves a personal human tragedy into the horror of Vel'd'Hiv', smacking the reader in the face with man's inhumanity to man. The first half of the book and its conclusion were heartbreaking, physically painful, and I felt that De Rosnay was making the statement of her life. I will "Zakhor. Al Tiehkah/ Remember. Never Forget".

The second half of the book made me mad. I only kept reading because of Julia's relationship with her father-in-law. It was predictable, Hollywood schlock.

I wish the author would rewrite the book from page 160 without the superfluous characters, destinations... and without Julia's incessant, repetitious thought process. Unfortunately, De Rosnay dilutes a powerful story and loses her reader's respect; respect that I think was well earned in the first half of the book.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 1/2 Great, 1/2 Teen Romance 15 février 2010
Par Reader - Publié sur
This would have been a great book to have borrowed from the library. I'm a little disappointed that I paid money for it. The story of Sarah is gripping, well told, and was news to me. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to find out what happened to little Sarah and her little brother.
Once this mystery was solved, however, and the secondary mystery of the Tezac/Sarah tie, then the rest of the novel was just plain silly.

For the last 24 pages, we knew what Juala named her daughter. But we had to drag through 24 pages of stilted writing, with the author using every stupid device available to NOT say the name of her daughter. Worse even than the first part of the book where she worked so hard at not telling us "the girl's" name. Too affected for me. By the time she "revealed" the names, we already knew them. Does she think we're that stupid? I guess hundreds of people thought this was an ok way to develop the climax.

This is a book I ran through, and when finished, wanted to throw across the room. It could have been so great. I have to agree with other reviewers that said that the story of Sarah was beautifully done, and far too short. The story of Julia, which the author seems to feel is more important, is weak and poorly done.
