Publisher's Description

Evil, unchecked, is the prelude to genocide.

As the Nazi war machine rolls across Europe, young Jacob Weisz is forced to flee his beloved Germany and join an underground resistance group in Belgium. But when a rescue operation goes horribly wrong, Jacob finds himself trapped in a crowded cattle car headed to southern Poland.

Sentenced to hard labor in the Auschwitz labor camp, Jacob forms an unlikely alliance with Jean-Luc Leclerc, a former assistant pastor who was imprisoned for helping Jews. They’ve been chosen for one of the most daring and dangerous feats imaginable—escape from Auschwitz. With no regard for their own safety, they must make it to the West and alert the Allies to the awful truth of what is happening in Poland before Fascism overtakes all of Europe. The fate of millions hangs in the balance.

Editorial Reviews

The strong religious conviction evident in Rosenberg’s previous novels (Damascus Countdown), which were focused on the Middle East and Muslim-Western relations, is reflected in his latest book, [The Auschwitz Escape,] a work of historical fiction, about a heroic escape from the Nazis.

Luc, a French pastor, who is sentenced to the Auschwitz death camp for helping Jews, joins forces with Jacob, a Jewish man sent to the camp after his attempt to hijack a train bound for Auschwitz fails. Together they plan to escape to tell an unbelieving world about the Holocaust.

During the escape, the two form a strong bond, learning about each other’s faith and doubts. When Jacob questions why Luc has joined the Resistance, the pastor responds, “The real question is ‘Why aren’t all the Christians here?’”

Rosenberg has done what he does best: create believable characters set in a political milieu and also in religious context, acting on conviction or exploiting religion for selfish or evil ends.

This is Rosenberg’s most deeply moving work to date.

    This review was written for The Auschwitz Escape.
    After a so-so start (the main character, Jacob, does not show up until Part Two, and the character of Luc never really came alive for me), the story really becomes engrossing as the reader is forced to see the reality of life and death in the Nazi death camps. Escape seems impossible, but the terrible risks are thought worth it, not just to regain freedom but to tell the world the truth about what is happening at Auschwitz.

    It's the kind of book that's hard to put down, but at the same time it's hard to read, because this isn't just fiction, it's a fictionalized account of what really went on under Hitler's rule. The fact that an escape takes place isn't a spoiler you can guess it from the title. But it's also probably not giving much away to say that some people will die as a result of the escape, and you don't know who they will be.

    I can't say I *enjoyed* the story I don't think it's the kind of story intended to be enjoyed but it was definitely worth reading.

    I found this book very interesting and a good read. I didn't realize that some had escapped. I hope younger people will read this. It did happen maybe not this exact way but like this happened.

    I am still reading it but can almost feel it happening today. With all the conflict going on against the Christian community in the Middle East, you can feel the need for Christ to return.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was somewhat different than others Joel Rosenberg has written, but based on a true story. It holds your interest to the very end, a book you do not want to put down

    I recommend it 100%.

    This review was written for The Auschwitz Escape.
    I read this book as a prelude of going to Auschwitz on my trip to Europe. I was very glad I had read it and I found it related in so many areas of what we were hearing as we toured the Concentration Camp...it seemed to bring things to life for me while there. After I read it, I gave it to my friend as well as to my daughter to read before we got to Poland. All three of us felt it was very authentic.
