The Auschwitz Escape – Joel C. Rosenberg
Every time I read a book about the Holocaust, I always have a hard time believing the atrocities committed by the Nazi. Worse when I read the SS soldiers and officers would attend Easter services, I wanted to scream these people were not Christians. No true follower of Christ could do that.
The Auschwitz Escape by Joel C. Rosenberg is another great story about the bravery, sorrow, and misery of the events at the death camps.
It is a story of escape; it is also a story of how one Christian pastor risked his life to do the right thing by saving Jews; it is also a story about the friendship between the pastor and a young Jewish man—how the young man realized there were non-Jew who sympathized with their plight; it is also a love story between the young man and another prisoner, a beautiful young Jewish woman who worked as a nurse.
There are so many layers in this book. I usually read thrillers, suspense, mysteries. The only exception is WWII era fiction, especially pertaining to the Jews.
I like this one a lot. Maybe you will too.
