The Third Reich is rising. The creeping madness in the heart of Germany will soon stain the entire world. This is the chilling account of one family as they flee for their lives.
The Wobsers are prosperous, churchgoing, patriotic Germans living in a small East Prussian town. When Hitler seizes power, their comfortable family life is destroyed by a horrifying Nazi regime. Baptized and confirmed as Lutherans, they are told they are Jewish, a past always respected but rarely considered. This distinction makes a life-and-death difference. Suddenly, it is no longer a matter of faith or religion; their lives are defined by race. It is a matter of bloodlines. And, in Nazi Germany, they have the wrong blood.
Written by a second generation Holocaust survivor, this compelling, heart-wrenching story will touch every emotion.

Not necessarily better but equally as good; audio is my personal preference.
It is relevant to the refugee crisis we are all witnessing today. When we look at a face or hear a language different from ours, it is easier to see they are just like us after reading this story.
Male author is best suited to a male reader.
A Good Story to Take Into Your Heart
So glad Webster was willing to stop his life long enough to get this into writing. Most families have a great story but very few have somebody capable of assimilating it and then willing to share it with the public. I would add Ralph Webster to a short list of favorite authors.
