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.

Publishers Weekly Review

Jan 20, 2014 – 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—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.

The Auschwitz Escape

Emotionally jarring...We all "know" about Auschwitz but this book lays bare the hideous reality of the incredulous conditions, the level of depraved inhumanity, & the most shocking of all, the lack of urgency to stop the Germans' murderous rampage. So powerful!

The Auschwitz Escape

Another great book from one of my favorite authors...loved it and will delve more into facts of the Holocaust because of this...

Amazing story

For years I have been fascinated by the stories of the holocaust and, in particular, Auschwitz. When I came across this book, I knew I had to read it. What a great story. I couldn't put it down but when I had to, I couldn't wait to get back to it. It really provides the reader an inside look from the Jewish perspective from just before Hitler's take over to the liberation. The characters seem so real in a story of history, that it's easy to forget that they're not real people. It is so well written that you feel like you're there with them feeling their pain and hunger and fears.
