Years later, the daughter of the prosecutor wants to know the whole story, and bit by bit, it is told through both Berthold's and Anna's eyes.
Weinstein shines in his ability to explain the mindset of the people living, the how's and why's of the rise of the Nazi party. He painstakingly recreates the life and times, the political climate and the people caught up in the coming conflagration. Why did they stay? Didn't they see it coming? Like Leon Uris in Exodus, Weinstein is able to place the reader in the 1930's where they can see if through the character's viewpoint and understanding, without sacrificing story lines. Powerful and compelling, this is a must-read that puts history into perspective with both realism and sensitivity.
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.
