Summary: Tzipporah Stein, a Jew living in Vienna, Austria on the eve of WWII, is shocked when she gets a letter telling her she is a witch. The volatile state of Europe as it waits for both a muggle and a wizarding war to begin has prompted Hogwarts to take in students from many countries. How will Tzipporah handle magic, mischief, and even a little romance while trying to be true to her religion and culture at the same time?
I only recently discovered mugglenet, and now, here is this gem of a story! I'm not Jewish, but have always been fascinated with the traditions, history, and stories. I'm looking forward to reading more - you're painting a wonderfully rich picture with such warm, believable characters!
Ah, a fresh story line, and nicely set up! I really enjoy "secondary character" fics - looking forward to more!
Author's Response: OOH, thank you for that. I rather like writing minor characters because there's so much more I can make up about them. Glad you enjoyed it. Carole xxx
