Publisher's Description

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.

    The Auschwitz Escape is my favorite book so far in my summer reading adventure. I say this with the caveat that probably my favorite genre of literature is historical fiction, of which this book is a part. I learned many things about the experience of the Nazi “death camps” that I didn’t know before, most importantly, that there actually were some successful escapes. When you read of the great lengths the Nazis took to keep people in, to keep those on the outside from knowing what was really going on, it truly is remarkable that some managed to get out. Even more surprising was how hard it seemed to get those outside to believe what was really going on inside. I imagine from the perspective of the day, it does seem unbelievable that this could possibly be happening.

    I really appreciated the “Author’s Note” in the back that listed many facts (and the places that he strayed ever-so-slightly) of the true story, along with a list of sources he consulted when writing his novel. I have already put a couple of those books on my library list for later. It is important, especially in today’s world with so many little “internal” wars that seem to seek to provide ethnic cleansing, that we continue to remember things like Auschwitz and what the world’s failure to realize what was happening allowed. As Santayana wrote (in The Life of Reason, 1905): “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

    Warning...once you start this book you will NOT want to put it down. I have been interested in WWII and the Holocaust for a long time, and have read many books about it. This novel is based on real events (the escape) and the author grabs you from the first page. While the story is about the Holocaust and the death camps, it is also a story of brave men and women who tried to do what their faith tells them to do and also a love story. I highly recommend this book to everyone who loves a great story that is based on fact.

    I found Rosenberg’s Auschwitz Escape to be full of suspense, adventure, and I could not put it down until I had read the last page. The setting begins in Germany during World War 2. Jacob is like any other man: he loves his family and supports them sufficiently, however he and his family are Jewish. The Nazi regime comes to power under the leadership of Adolf Hitler and Jacob’s life changes forever. Just one night of horrible violence by the Nazi’s causes Jacob to join an underground resistance group where he meets a Christian pastor, Luc. Working with Luc, Jacob helps during a rescue operation that goes terribly wrong and Jacob becomes one of the thousands on an overcrowded, unsanitary train headed to Auschwitz. While in the concentration camp, Jacob’s life changed even more as he saw the cruelty of the Nazis. He was a quiet man by nature but he found the courage to speak up despite the risk of losing his life for it. Though hundreds had already tried to escape Auschwitz and failed, Jacob was determined to be the one that did so he could tell the Allies what the Nazis were doing to not only his people, but all those who tried to help them. With tremendous courage and a struggling faith in his God, Jacob took the first step in escaping the camp. But, will Jacob find success or will he be just another casualty of Auschwitz? I found this book to be not only very well-written and mind-captivating, but also accurate to the conditions of the concentration camps. This is an excellent book to read because though it is hard to imagine people being treated as the Jewish people were, the message is important so we can make sure it never happens again.

    We are familiar with the horrors of Auschwitz, but this brings them to us from a personal perspective, with the main character’s emotions and reactions portrayed in a gut-wrenching, dramatic style. The history rings true, and the fictional characters act in a realistic manner. Real people are mentioned within the plot, with real events woven in. The young man matures admirably, albeit forcibly, under the atrocities. My husband was fascinated by the concepts and the history, so he plans to read it next. The history was well researched and quite educational. I am inspired to peruse more sources after reading this intense novel, and the Author’s Note in the back refers books and films I will use to do that.

    Joel C. Rosenberg in his book “The Auschwitz Escape” published by Tyndale House Publishers takes us into the lives of Jacob Weisz and Jean-Luc LeClerc.

    From the inside jacket flap: 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 holds 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.

    History, World War II and The Concentration Camps. World War II was an extremely dark time on our planet and The Nazis with their Concentration Camps just made it even worse. Hitler wanted to exterminate the Jews and set into motion this evil plan. The wonderful thing is there really was a city that the people were trying to smuggle Jews out of France. Here Jean-Luc is captured and is sent to Auschwitz where he meets up with the captured Jacob. There really was an escape attempt and this book is based on that escape. This book is a thriller as mostly everyone’s lives are in great danger. This book is entertaining and will have you flipping pages as fast as you can read but, be prepared, it is also thought-provoking and will have you looking up from the page going, “wow”. I do not recommend starting this book late at night because it will cost you sleep as you will not want to put it down. Mr. Rosenberg is an excellent writer and knows how to twist your nerve endings as he tightens the suspense.
