Description

A former professor descends into darkness in this provocative story of a Nazi soldier torn between duty and conscience.

East Prussia, Nazi Germany, 1939. History professor Erik Mueller is a model citizen and a family man. He’s also a decorated sergeant in the Gestapo. Proving his courage on the battlefields of Poland and the Soviet Union, and proud of the German army’s victories across Europe, he embraces what he thinks is the righteousness of the Third Reich’s cause.

But his loyalties are soon tested when he crosses paths with his old university friend Trude Bensheim. Forced into unemployment for being Jewish, Trude and her husband start a secret organization to help Jews escape Germany. But when they are betrayed by someone they thought they could trust, their lives hang in the balance.

Erik feels responsible for Trude’s capture, and he knows he’s in a position to help them. But when everything he holds dear is at stake, will he save his friends…or himself?

    Great read!

    Though very sad, it was a great story!
    I can't imagine going through what the Jews went through. Highly recommended!

    well written heartbreaking historical fiction. This asks what would you do and what responsibility do you bear- questions we would all do well to consider. Erik is complicit and actively supporting the Nazi regime even as his friend Trude (and millions of others) are facing its horrors. There are lessons to be learned here. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.
