Publisher's Summary

A terrible darkness has fallen upon Jacob Weisz’s beloved Germany. The Nazi regime, under the leadership of Adolf Hitler, has surged to power and now hold Germany by the throat. All non-Aryans - especially Jews like Jacob and his family - are treated like dogs.
When tragedy strikes during one terrible night of violence, Jacob flees and joins rebel forces working to undermine the regime. But after a raid goes horribly wrong, Jacob finds himself in a living nightmare - trapped in a crowded, stinking car on the train to the Auschwitz death camp.
As World War II rages and Hitler begins implementing his "final solution" to systematically and ruthlessly exterminate the Jewish people, Jacob must rely on his wits and a God he’s not sure he believes in to somehow escape from Auschwitz and alert the world to the Nazi’s atrocities before Fascism overtakes all of Europe. The fate of millions hangs in the balance.

Amazing, horrifying, and heartwarming!

What did you love best about The Auschwitz Escape?

I loved the entire book! But, my favorite would have to be the end of the book. I'm not going to give away any spoilers, but I found my eyes welling up with tears and a smile on my face.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

At times I actually found myself talking out loud as if Jacob could hear me. After saying, "Oh no, don't go that way!" My son actually asked me, "What are you talking about? There is only one way to the back yard."

Which character – as performed by Christopher Lane – was your favorite?

Christopher Lane gave each character their own unique sound. He did such a wonderful job. One reviewer said people who speak french only have accents when they speak English. I don't speak french, but when a friend of mine, who is french speaks french, she has a definite accent. I hate it when narrators try to do the opposite sex and end up sounding like they have an awful head cold, or are being strangled. Christopher Lane did a wonderful job!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Unfortunately I began the book late in the afternoon and had to force myself to stop and go to bed. That being said, as soon as I got up the next day, my headset was the first thing I picked up.

Any additional comments?

I can't say enough about this book. It is so worth the read!

In the top books I ever read

This book is equal to Uncle Tom's cabin in it's revelation of the fullest extent of evil in this world. So many people were brainwashed into thinking the Jews were not Human, which opened the doors to unspeakable atrocities, much like slaves were deemed less than human which led to atrocities in that age, and today, it's the unborn child that is seen as being less than human (hopefully that book will come soon).unfortunately, no matter how civilized we think we are, evil continues to manifest itself in new and creative ways, all the while with great justifications, even from Christians.
