TROPICAL SECRETS Holocaust Refugees In Cuba

by | Read by Matt Green, Váne Millon, Ozzie Rodriguez, Roberto Santana

Young Adult Young Adult • 1.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

This compelling story of Jewish refugees who sought asylum from the Nazis in Cuba between 1939 and 1942 is brought to life by the voices of Matt Green, Váne Millon, Ozzie Rodriquez, and Roberto Santana. The story is told in the first person and alternates between the points of view of Daniel, 13, who has escaped Nazi Germany; Paloma, 13, a local girl; and David, an elderly Jew who came to Cuba from Russia many years ago. The narrators' different accents reflect the diversity of the characters and their distinctive stories, adding a rich dimension to the production. Matt Green's portrayal of Daniel's culture shock and his hope of one day being reunited with his parents will especially resonate with listeners. A lot of historical information is packed into this moving story. L.A.C. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2010]
