The Boys from Brazil
Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
It is 1974, but for Dr Mengele and his group of Nazis, World War II is not yet over. They have a terrible plan to conquer the world, but how does it involve a group of boys that come from different countries, yet all look exactly the same? Only one man can find out. "Penguin Readers" is a series of simplified novels, film novelizations and original titles that introduce students at all levels to the pleasures of reading in English. Originally designed for teaching English as a foreign language, the series' combination of high interest level and low reading age makes it suitable for both English-speaking teenagers with limited reading skills and students of English as a second language. Many titles in the series also provide access to the pre-20th century literature strands of the National Curriculum English Orders. "Penguin Readers" are graded at seven levels of difficulty, from "Easystarts" with a 200-word vocabulary, to Level 6 (Advanced) with a 3000-word vocabulary. In addition, titles fall into one of three sub-categories: "Contemporary", "Classics" or "Originals". At the end of each book there is a section of enjoyable exercises focusing on vocabulary building, comprehension, discussion and writing. Some titles in the series are available with an accompanying audio cassette, or in a book and cassette pack. Additionally, selected titles have free accompanying "Penguin Readers Factsheets" which provide stimulating exercise material for students, as well as suggestions for teachers on how to exploit the Readers in class.

All right, forget it. Anyway, there are six of them, and they’re going out for two and a half years, and they’ve got certain dates when they’re supposed to kill certain men, and here comes the crazy part. Are you ready, Mr. Liebermann? These men they’re going to kill, there are ninety-four of
a clinic somewhere, so that in case the Jew-gangs got in—they were strong in those days, “Commando Isaac” and the others—they’d have no clues, no inkling. He walked down the central corridor. Native attendants spoke soothing words in primitive dialects, trying to make themselves understood. He came into the dormitory, fresh-smelling and cool thanks to its open roof. The grass mats were still there, lying in disarray. Make what you will of a few dozen grass mats, Jew-boys. He walked among
looked at Gorin. “Do you have people who could do a job like that? Guard someone, capture someone?” Gorin nodded. Greenspan said, “You’re looking at them,” and to Gorin, “Let Jay take over the demonstration. I’ll manage this.” Gorin smiled, tilted his head toward Greenspan and said to Liebermann, “This one’s main regret is he missed World War Two. He runs our combat classes.” “It will only be for a week or so, I hope,” Liebermann said. “Just till the F.B.I. comes in.” “What do you want them
snarled, not moving. “Nice dogs,” Mengele said. “Samson? Good Samson. Off. Go away.” He turned his head slowly against the settee arm; the Dobermans withdrew their heads a little, snarling. Mengele made a shaky smile at them. “Major?” he asked. “Are you Major? Good Major, good Samson. Good dogs. Friend. No more gun.” His hand, red-wristed, caught the front of the settee arm; his other hand held the frame of the settee’s back. He began turning himself up slowly from his side. “Good dogs. Off.
stairs!” “Touch me and I’ll break your neck,” Liebermann said. Gorin pulled in breath; his fists clenched at his sides. “It’s Jews like you,” he said, “that let it happen last time.” Liebermann looked at him. “Jews didn’t ‘let’ it happen,” he said. “Nazis made it happen. People who would even kill children to get what they wanted.” Gorin’s reddened jaw clenched. “Get out of here,” he said. And wheeled and stalked away. Liebermann watched him go, drew a breath, and turned to the stairs. He
