Decades after the Nuremburg Trials, the grown daughter of a prosecutor at the Nuremburg Trials proposes to author a book. Her focus lies on the German Nazi her father prosecuted. Her interest stemmed from information concluding that the main witness, a Polish woman who defended the Nazi at the Trial, had family killed by the Nazis.
The book, historically based, is highly informative, accurately aligned with historic events, descriptive of the corrupt, vicious Nazi regime, and detailed of Hitler’s relentless grab for power. Though the two main characters are fictitious, Weinstein surrounds their actions with real events and historic personages from both Germany and Poland.
The fascinating and thorough account describes Hitler’s actions from the Beer Hall Putsch of 1923 to his unabashed dismissal of the Treaty of Versailles. The author depicts Hitler’s unhindered rearmament of Germany, Polish Marshall Pilsudski’s warning of the evil Nazi menace, the inaction of Britain and France in Poland’s defense, the Concordat between the Vatican, and the Nazis in 1933, and the Enabling Act of 1933, which gave Hitler unlimited power. In conclusion, Weinstein deftly states that the Allies turned a blind eye, to Hitler. Weinstein also includes the struggle of the Zionist movement, which helped Jews escape Europe to Palestine.
An interesting note: Lewis Weinstein also includes a character who semi portrays his grandfather in the book.

Berthold and Anna, as lovers who endured Nazi Germany, are human touchstones through terrible historical events - and I felt their anguish. I recommend this to readers who enjoy historical fiction, because Lew Weinstein's research is impressive, detailed and well-positioned within the story. I also recommend this to readers who may be less familiar with Hitler's rise, and who appreciate a glimpse into harshest moments in being human. Lew Weinstein's storytelling and character development are that superb.
I reached the last chapter and felt I knew Anna - and I am waiting impatiently to learn what happens next.
