One Man: Andrew Gross: Takes the spotlight as we talk about the real life incident that set him in motion to write this heartwrenching story based on real life.

Death camps bring back memories that will haunt the survivors forever. The screams, the flesh burning in the ovens as millions were marched to their deaths in a place that no one wants to revisit or see Auschwitz, Poland a place that my grandmother described to me in detail as she was one of the lucky ones to survive but the lasting effects were permanent. One man named Alfred Mendl, his wife and daughtere were sent there as the SS officers marched them to their deaths, he was spared to become part of their plan because of his mind and his work. But, the papers that they were given were burned and told they were forgeries just for the sake of folly of these sadistic men. Alfred Mendl, a professor at the Polish University watched his wife and daughter disappear and he became for appearances just another tortured prisoner. But, he was useful to the Germans and to stay alive he complied because he was fluent in the language. A respected physicist in a place where who you were did not matter and what you new counted even less. He and one other have information that only one other person employed by the Nazi’s war machine has and these two men create a plan and their escape just might save others.This novel takes place in two different time periods as we bring it to the present and meet Captain Peter Strauss working for the Office of Strategic Services an American spy agency. He is Jewish and has spent countless time trying to find Mendl and bring him out of the camp to safety. Fran Lewis: MJ Magazine: this book will let you know that the HOLOCAUST Really did happen.
