    Un jour de 1939, les nazis font irruption au domicile de Gustav. Parce qu'il est Juif, il est déporté à Buchenwald avec son fils Fritz. Là, débute une épreuve inimaginable  : la faim, le froid, les humiliations et la violence deviennent leur seul horizon.
    Puis, on annonce à Gustav qu'il est transféré à Auschwitz. Tous les déportés savent que c'est un aller sans retour, un nom qui résonne comme une condamnation à mort. Malgré tout, Fritz refuse de quitter son père et demande à partir avec lui.
    Dans ce camp où l'humanité et l'espoir n'ont pas leur place, une seule chose préserve Gustav et Fritz  : l'amour entre un père et son fils. Un amour infini, plus fort que l'horreur du monde.
    Basé sur le journal secret tenu par Gustav pendant sa captivité, ce livre raconte leur incroyable histoire. Un récit de courage et de survie au coeur de l'enfer.
     

  • Near the end of World War II, thousands of Allied ex-POWs were abandoned to wander the war-torn Eastern Front, modern day Ukraine. With no food, shelter, or supplies, they were an army of dying men.The Red Army had pushed the Nazis out of Russia. As they advanced across Poland, the prison camps of the Third Reich were discovered and liberated. In defiance of humanity, the freed Allied prisoners were discarded without aid. The Soviets viewed POWs as cowards, and regarded all refugees as potential spies or partisans.The United States repeatedly offered to help recover their POWs, but were refused. With relations between the allies strained, a plan was conceived for an undercover rescue mission. In total secrecy, the OSS chose an obscure American air force detachment stationed at a Ukrainian airfield; it would provide the base and the cover for the operation. The man they picked to undertake it was veteran 8th Air Force bomber pilot Captain Robert Trimble.With little covert training, already scarred by the trials of combat, Trimble took the mission. He would survive by wit, courage, and a determination to do some good in a terrible war. Alone he faced up to the terrifying Soviet secret police, saving hundreds of lives. At the same time he battled to come to terms with the trauma of war and find his own way home to his wife and child.One ordinary man. One extraordinary mission. A thousand lives at stake.This is the compelling, inspiring true story of an American hero who laid his life on the line to bring his fellow men home to safety and freedom.INCLUDES PHOTOS
