While no one suffered under Hitler more than the Jews, truly committed Christians found themselves facing two terrible alternatives: conform to or be consumed by the monstrous political ambitions and genocidal blood lust of the Third Reich. This one-of-a-kind true story depicts the courageous Ziefle family, Christians standing firm against the tidal wave of Nazism. While Hitler's tyranny undermined, contradicted, and countermanded every effort she made, one woman instilled in her children a commitment to remain faithful to God. Its lessons will be a welcomed encouragement to contemporary Christians facing equally real cultural pressures and seduction in the twenty-first century.

I could hardly put it down.--Carolyn R. Scheidies"Author and Journalist" (06/03/2004)

Textul de pe ultima copertă

"I want a fierce, masterful, fearless and ferocious youth. It can't show any weakness or tenderness. The free and magnificent beast of prey must finally glow again from their eyes."

--Adolf Hitler

World War II Germany. It was a fierce and dangerous place where evil had bullied its way into power and controlled the daily lives of almost every individual. But not all.

One Woman Against the Reich chronicles the true story of Maria Ziefle's struggle to raise her children free from the hate-filled grip of the Nazi regime. It is a powerful portrayal of the courage and determination of a Christian parent to remain obedient to God in spite of the enticements and assaults of a hostile culture.

And it's a struggle that continues today. Our secular culture, filled with enticing messages and explicit images, applies relentless pressure on our kids. If you're tempted to give up and give in, you'll find encouragement and strength in this inspiring story of how God, who is greater than any culture or government, honors the commitments of those who are faithful to Him.

"And the Lord shall help them, and deliver them: He shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in Him."

--Psalm 37:40

Helmut W. Ziefle (Ph.D., University of Illinois), the youngest son of George and Maria Ziefle, lived in Germany during World War II, where he knew air-attacks, hunger, and chaos as a way of life. The Ziefle family immigrated to the United States in 1956. After pursuing his education in the States, Dr. Ziefle taught German at both the high school and college levels, and is Professor Emeritus at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois.
