Editorial Reviews


"Anyone who would understand, on more than a factual level, the emotions and motivations of resisters and believers alike will find this powerful history captured in a story that is, yes, complex...but also thoroughly engrossing and thought-provoking. Traitors for the Sake of Humanity serves as a strong reminder of the price of loyalty and allegiance. It... represents new lessons from old history, for modern times." Diane Donovan for Midwest Book Review

"... the importance of this book cannot be underestimated. Traitors for the Sake of Humanity rises as a critical, provocative, and timely book that perhaps we would all benefit from reading." Chanticleer Reviews.

"The novel is a deeply researched window into the wartime lives of Germans at odds with Hitler's regime, and while the story of Operation Valkyrie may be well known, Schrader offers the larger context for the German resistance with admirable depth and detail." Kirkus Reviews

"Helena P. Schrader has a wonderful gift for character and I enjoyed following Philip Freiherr von Feldburg, a German General Staff Officer, and his mother Sophia Maria Freifrau von Feldburg, the coachman Josef and other staff at the Feldburg Schloss, Father Matthias, Prof. Dr. Moldenauer, and his wife, and other characters. The exploration of these characters as they navigated a dangerous and treacherous environment is wonderful and the author captures their emotions, their fears, and hopes in a way that conveys their humanity brilliantly. Traitors for the Sake of Humanity takes readers from Altdorf to Berlin, to West Prussia, to Crepon, France, to Yulov, and many other places. This is a novel with compelling historical elements and characters who communicate the message that evil does not triumph over the goodness of the human heart. The characters are nuanced, the writing is superb, and the plot is so well written that it forces the reader to keep on turning the pages. This is one of the best books I have read about the Nazi era." Readers' Favorites

"...I was riveted by each character's story. Your heart and soul hurt for the people who worked so hard to save their brethren, while they wished for their country to become great once again by pulling it out from under the heathenistic brutality that defined Hitler and the Nazis. And even if you are not a WWII aficionado, this gifted historian makes the history coincide with pure excitement as she ties fiction in with nonfiction perfectly....Truly inspiring, these awesome 'traitors' keep you on the edge of your seat. Schrader has done it yet again: 5-Stars!" Feathered Quill

"Helena P. Schrader has done a  masterful job ... highlighting the immense moral struggle many of  the German officers were fighting with as they weighed their  consciences and their strict Army traditions against the extreme  excesses of the Nazi regime. In Philip and Alix, she has produced two superb characters that embody the principles of equity and equality that were so ruthlessly repressed by the regime, with their emphasis on  racial stereotypes and the concept of Aryan superiority. ... I  particularly enjoyed the breakdown of familial relationships explored by  the author where competing emotions between love of country and  adoration of the Fuhrer sat at the same dinner table as family members  who condemned the excesses, the lack of humanity, and the power-crazed  Nazi regime. ... If you love historical novels laced with reality and if  you like a story that makes you think and question your perceptions and  beliefs about a period of history, then this is the book for you. I call  it a thinking man's novel and I can highly recommend it." Grant  Leischman for Readers Favorites
