If you've been looking for more proof that this verse is indeed true, here it is!
Trapped in Hitler’s Hell is a first-person account of a young German Jewish girl’s trials, tragedies and triumphs in the years before, during and after World War II – a wonderful book on so many levels, appealing to every aspect of soul and spirit.
First, it’s a cliff-hanging adventure story to rival the finest I’ve ever read. I found it nearly impossible to put down.
Second, it’s intellectually satisfying for anyone who’s fascinated by modern European history, by a world that allowed Hitler to put his demonic plans into motion, and especially by what it must have been like to live through such terrible times.
Third, it’s a love story that captures, in well-chosen and well-told vignettes, a daughter’s devotion to her mother.
Fourth, it’s a story of a rock-solid belief in happy endings, a belief that may appear baseless but seems to be its own reward through unimaginable ordeals.
Finally, and most importantly, it’s a story of complete faith in the Lord Jesus Christ – in the childlike trust He wants us all to have as we labor through earthly lives that are plagued by loss. It is in fact a story that shows us precisely what it means to live for the Lord … and to take Him at His word when He promises, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
My only criticism is that Trapped in Hitler’s Hell is too short. The author has done a magnificent job of giving readers just enough detail to feed our imaginations, without bogging us down. But as quickly as I raced through its pages, desperate to find out what happened to this daughter and her mother, I was very sad to turn the last page. I did not want this girl’s story to end.
Come to think of it, thanks to her relationship with the Messiah Himself, her story never will end.
Many thanks to Anita Dittman and her talented memoirist Jan Markell for an unforgettable book! For details about the book and its new companion DVD, visit the Hitler's Hell website.
