Tales of the Slayer: Sonnenblume
We are back in the world of the slayers, away from those pesky vampires as Rebecca Rand Kirshner tells us the story of a girl, Sonnenblume, who grows up in Germany just as the Nazi party is taking over. She is friends with a Jewish baker and her family but as the anti-Jewish sentiment reaches an all time high.
She tries to do her part as a good German but it never really feels right to her. She feels that something is wrong but her family keeps telling her that good German's have to know their place in the world. That they are above everyone else, better than everyone else and has to remember that.
One night while walking down the street looking for the undead she sees some Nazi breaking into the bakery looking for the Jewish family that she use to be friends with. She finally figures out that vampires aren't the only evil things out there. That sometimes people can be evil too.
She fights the German's and saves the family. Vowing to protect people from the evil that man does as well. It is a tale of someone learning that their government isn't to be trusted. That just because we are told something doesn't make it true and that we have to figure out for our-self what is right and wrong.
