"In 1941, the first Neumann family member was taken by the Nazis, arrested in German-occupied Czechoslovakia for bathing in a stretch of river forbidden to Jews. He was transported to Auschwitz. Eighteen days later his prisoner number was entered into the morgue book. Of thirty-four Neumann family members, twenty-five were murdered by the Nazis. One of the survivors was Hans Neumann, who, to escape the German death net, traveled to Berlin and hid in plain sight under the Gestapo's eyes. What Hans experienced was so unspeakable that, when he built an industrial empire in Venezuela, he couldn't bring himself to talk about it. All his daughter Ariana knew was that something terrible had happened. When Hans died, he left Ariana a small box filled with letters, diary entries, and other memorabilia. Ten years later, Ariana finally summoned the courage to have the letters translated, and she began reading. What she discovered launched her on a worldwide search that would deliver indelible portraits of a family loving, finding meaning, and trying to survive amid the worst that can be imagined. When Time Stopped is a powerful detective story and an epic family memoir, spanning nearly ninety years and crossing oceans. Neumann brings each relative to vivid life. In uncovering her father's story after all these years, she discovers nuance and depth to her own history and liberates poignant and thought-provoking truths about the threads of humanity that connect us all."--… (mere)

The author’s father kept his life in Czechoslovakia secret from her, identifying himself as Venezuelan. When she learned from a complete stranger in college that her name was Jewish, she was shocked. With very few hints from her father, and a box he left her when he died bearing little information, she went on a search for how he came to be in Venezuela. This book is about her genealogical search, and her father’s and his family’s story during WWII. The prologue felt like I was about to read the author’s memoir, but it really settles into most specifically her father’s story and his family. It is very deeply researched and to the extent she could, she provided immense detail in a way that shed light on what life was like trying to survive Nazi occupation and concentration camp as a Jew. It was always revealing—always making the reader think: how would I survive this? The narrator was perfect for the audiobook. Her voice was calm and appropriate throughout the story. I’m also glad I checked out the ebook from the library at the same time because it has photos. A highly recommended read for both its apt approach to telling about a genealogical search and of course, describing a life of fear and survival in Nazi-occupied Prague. ( )

This was a really good look at one family’s experience of the Holocaust. I often find Holocaust books difficult to read, as I’m sure everyone does, but despite the truly tragic occurrences in the book, its overall tale of survival and remembrance make it stand out. The incredible risks people take, often for friends and family, give a lift to the spirit. There are also details about day to day life during the war, and first person narrative like letters and documents that make this an especially effective book. ( )

Ariana Neumann had to do so much research to discover her family. Her father never told her the story of his life in Czechoslovakia during WW II. She discovers all the horrible things that they went through, being Jewish in the Nazi reign. ( )

Excellent account of a family’s attempt to survive during the Holocaust. ( )

This was well written to teach me both about the communities' responses to the Nazi regime, and also about the responses and activities of many individuals. I learned about so many underground activities and individual dares that actually worked. This book was extremely sad and also very educational for me. ( )

A London-based former foreign correspondent for Venezuela's Daily Journal uncovers the true story of her Jewish father's double life during World War II. When he learned that he was scheduled to be deported from Nazi-occupied Prague to a concentration camp, Hans Neumann took a brazen step: He hid in plain sight, assuming a false identity and going to work as a chemist for a supplier of the German war machine in Berlin. That daring feat alone might make his story unique, but there is much more to it. After the war—during which his parents and 23 other relatives were murdered by the Nazis—Neumann settled in Caracas, and he and his brother founded a paint company that became an international conglomerate. He and his glamorous second wife attained an enviable position in Venezuela: rich, cultured, well respected, and socially prominent. Neumann hid his Jewish roots, but the author, the couple's only daughter, found an early clue to his erstwhile double identity when she stumbled as a girl on the fake ID card that had enabled him to work in Germany. Even then, she had no idea he was Jewish——and remained largely in the dark until her father died and left her a box of papers that held a memoir of his bold escape to Berlin. In this elegantly structured debut, the author reconstructs with considerable literary finesse the life of her father, who owned 297 pocket watches—a unifying motif and organizing metaphor that readers may see as his metaphorical attempt to replace time stolen by Hitler. She also offers vivid images of Terezín (renamed Theresienstadt by the Nazis), where her grandparents were interned before they died in Auschwitz. Because Terezín was nominally a transit and labor camp rather than a death camp, prisoners could send and receive letters and packages, and the author includes poignant excerpts of some of the letters.
