Kurzbeschreibung

Grandpa, what did you do in World War II?


Albert Stohl is an old man with a hidden past. He was at Auschwitz. But, not as an inmate. Now he has to tell his story to his daughter and grandchildren. What will they think? How will he explain what he did and why? Will they ever see him the same way again?

If you’ve ever said to yourself “I couldn’t have been a perpetrator of the Holocaust,” you need to read this book. And then ask yourself… what would YOU do?


Well researched and technically detailed, the book takes you behind-the-scenes and into the machinery of Auschwitz and other Nazi death camps, as told from the viewpoint of an engineer. A classic historical fiction tale of an ordinary person in extraordinary circumstances.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Thoughtful and Compelling 13. Mai 2008
Von Paula Green - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This question, "How could they do that and not do something to stop it?" has rumbled in my mind since I first heard about the Holocaust. It is a painful subject, but this book, based on research, helps us to see the insidious nature of going along with authority. The book eases us gently into a family living in the present but takes us on a journey to a time when there really was 'hell on earth.'
I highly recommend this historical fiction.

If you want a quick easy thoughtless read, - don't pick this one. If you want a story that draws you in, deepens your understanding of one of the most hideous events in history, and compells you to think long after it is over - this one is for you!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Melting Point 11. März 2011
Von Mary E. Young - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
After Albert Stohl's wife passes away, he fulfills a promise to her by telling his children the truth about his past. During World War II, Albert worked as an engineer, creating, installing and maintaining the crematoriums in Auschwitz.

Wonderfully written, this book explores the question of failing to act amidst horrible circumstances. Albert and his family come to life through his vivid descriptions and character development. This is an interesting book written from a little explored viewpoint. Overall, I highly recommend.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Diffirent Look at The Holocaust 28. Februar 2011
Von Raymond H. Mullen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
What a great read! I have read much on this tragic time in history but the author takes you a totally new route as he leads you through the life of a character he calls Albert Stohl. Albert was not a victim of the holocaust, but a somewhat willing participant. Be careful not to judge him too quickly.
Probably one of the strongest feelings in our lives is that of self survival. We all have a tendency to do what is best for ourselves. So did Albert.
I hate the inhumane actions of the so called humans that were responsible for and carried out the horror of the German concentration camps. There is and never will be any way of justifying how low mankind fell during that terrible time.
However, what if we were caught up into this period and were German? Would we be brave enough to stand up against Hitler and the Nazi's. I hope I would, but who knows?
This book will take you deeper into the emotion and horror of those condemned and those that condemned them. I understand this is the first book that has been written by this author, and if it is all I can say is "Keep writing!"

5.0 von 5 Sternen Quite a book 31. Dezember 2011
Von J. I. Bowman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This fictional account of a man who worked designing and maintaining crematoriums for the German's in the World War Two, is well researched and has many details that are not fiction at all. The author uses a first person view point that is filled with humility, and treats the difficult subject as sensitively as I have ever read.

I think it's very true what the author says in his notes, that if we are to prevent another Holocaust we must understand why it happened and why seemingly normal people went along with it. This book is an attempt at understanding that and I believe that is a worthy effort.

The style of writing is almost flawless and the pages turn quickly. It's amazing to me that such a horrible topic can be addressed without turning away from the inhumanity. I believe we need much more of an interaction and discussion on this subject, not so much from the victims of the Holocaust but from the perpetrators.

I am not Jewish, I am part German and part Italian, though my ancestors have been in the United States for generations and my father was in the U.S. army in the war. But the truth is that it was some of my very extended family that was partly responsible for what happened and for that I have always felt guilty and even somewhat responsible. I ask myself how could it be that relatives of my dad, for example, who was a very compassionate man, actually committed such acts of horror?

The fact is that I am very afraid that we today have forgotten what we, as a human race, have done in the very recent past. We have waged war casually over and over again in my lifetime. We have mistook the small things we define as differences in people we don't know as sufficient to kill them, and forgotten how that minimizes us as human beings. This book goes to the heart of what is really important: that we are all human beings. That may be a small and obvious point, but to forget it is a profound and grevous error.

The book is a little long and there are technical issues I think could have been skipped, but all in all I applaud Roger Collins for his work. This is an investment in time that is worth every moment.
