About this product
- DescriptionFor Poland and her people, time is running out: Hitler has set his greedy eyes upon the country and he is determined to have her. In a matter of days, Polish communication with the outside world was eliminated, factories and train stations left in ruins, complete cities annihilated, and thousands lay dead in the once vibrant country. Doctors, professors and clergy are slaughtered while thousands of Polish children are sent to Germany to be raised within the Nazi cause. For young Marta Koblinski the German occupation brings personal tragedy prompting her to take up a friend's challenge and join the Polish underground. Her fair features and command of the German language makes her invaluable to the cause. She is soon positioned as an underground spy in the small town of Auschwitz at a newly christened Labor Camp, Hitler's most closely guarded secret. Struggling to maintain her cover while witnessing unimaginable camp horrors, she faces treason and her own imprisonment while working within the prisoners' resistance efforts. As she attempts to smuggle out proof of Nazi brutalities she must also avoid the unwanted advances of her handsome German cousin and fight against her growing affections towards a Nazi colonel. From top-secret meetings in Hitler's Bauhaus retreat, the massacre at Katyn Forest, dangerous escapes, and little kwn facts, LIFE IN HITLER'S CROSSHAIRS is a work of historical fiction with astounding depth and resonance. It serves as a reminder of the atrocities committed against a nation and a people- and a celebration of the human spirit to overcome adversities.
- Author BiographyBorn of a Polish mother and a German father, the author has woven family traits into the historical facts of World War II Poland. Raised in southern California and residing in Germany for several years, she now lives with her family in northern California.
