A terrible darkness has fallen upon Jacob Weisz’s beloved Germany. The Nazi regime, under the leadership of Adolf Hitler, has surged to power and now hold Germany by the throat. All non-Aryans—especially Jews like Jacob and his family—are treated like dogs.

When tragedy strikes during one terrible night of violence, Jacob flees and joins rebel forces working to undermine the regime. But after a raid goes horribly wrong, Jacob finds himself in a living nightmare—trapped in a crowded, stinking car on the train to the Auschwitz death camp.

As World War II rages and Hitler begins implementing his “final solution” to systematically and ruthlessly exterminate the Jewish people, Jacob must rely on his wits and a God he’s not sure he believes in to somehow escape from Auschwitz and alert the world to the Nazi’s atrocities before Fascism overtakes all of Europe. The fate of millions hangs in the balance.

Quotes & Awards

  • “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.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Narrator Christopher Lane doesn’t need to add dramatic effect to this harrowing story of escape from the Auschwitz Nazi death camp. He wisely chooses a serious but straightforward narration that equally projects a strong humanity. Lane’s steady, compelling performance serves the story of teenaged Jacob, a German Jew, and Jean-Luc, a French Christian pastor who survive the brutality and horror of the camp and make an escape. Keeping an emotional tone just below the surface, Lane allows listeners to hear of the horrors and grim descriptions without being derailed from Jacob’s dedication to his escape and the hope of success. The historical detail—much of the plot is based on Rudolf Vrba’s actual escape—rings true in grim specifics, while the fictionalized interplay of characters enriches the story. Excellent listening. Winner of an Audie Award in 2015.”
