Auschwitz: Evil Unchecked a Prelude to Genocide
The New York Times best-selling author Joel Rosenberg is back with another historical novel. This one deals with one of the darkest times in human history: the Holocaust.
During World War II, 11 million people were rounded up and taken to concentration camps all over Europe. Six million were Jews.
An estimated 1 million of them died at Auschwitz, the Nazi concentration camp complex in Poland.
Rosenberg's new novel, The Auschwitz Escape, was inspired by true stories of those who were captured and sent to the death camps.
In it, Rosenberg provides a glimpse of the horrors that existed behind those prison walls, and the courage needed not only to survive a death camp, but to break free and tell the world the truth.
"We must never forget what they did, and why they did it," Rosenberg writes in a Fox News blog. "But we must also be ready to act wisely, bravely, and decisively if a mortal threat rises again."
"For if we learn nothing else from the history of the Holocaust, we had better learn this: Evil, unchecked, is the prelude to genocide," he warned.
Are we as a culture at risk of forgetting the terrible events of the Nazi Holocaust? Rosenberg addressed this question and talked more about his new novel on "The 700 Club," March 20.
