Bio:
I am an 18 year old archaeology and anthropology atudent who doesn't like tea, therefore completely destroying my country's stereotype.

Bicie Serca

This is my first fanfiction which focuses on the life of Sofia Goldhirsch, from her life in the Krakow ghetto, to Hogwarts and beyond. I appreciate it dangerously toes the line of cliche, but I am doing my very best to ensure that it is at least readable.

Inspiration for this fiction includes:

-The historical context of the Shoah and the Blitz as told by relatives and Kindertransport "children".
-The Kindertransport, an amazing scheme which resulted in 10,000 European children, mostly Jewish, being given refuge in England.
-Kindertransport, a play by Diane Samuels.
-The Ancyent Marinere, The Dungeon, The Convict, plus other poems from the Lyrical Ballad's collection by Coleridge and Wordsworth.
-Children of Men, the film based on a novel which I have deen ignorant enough not to have read yet.
-East is East, a play by (someone who's name escapes me). This may surprise people as it's a comical play about an English-Muslim family in the 1980s, but the culture clash and use of tension has been really useful for me.
-A personal photograph found in my grandmother's study which shows a sixteen year old girl having her Star of David cut off by a Quaker woman as she arrived on the shores of England.

I strongly reccomend all the literary and film works listed above.
