Hitler… the Fear of Others Brings a Small Man Down

It’s ironic that the fear of others helped to bring about Hitler’s end. After a group of Nazi officers, who’d decided they’d had enough, conspired but failed to assassinate him, their attempt helped shatter Hitler’s nerves. Already frayed from the war and his use of health-damaging drugs, Hitler became more and more paranoid. For a man who went to prison years earlier for trying to seize the German government, he knew firsthand how conspiracies work. He was right to be fearful, the Allies were coming for him. With that fear in mind, he committed suicide the night before Germany surrendered. Suellen Ocean is the author of The Steinberg Conspiracy Series. Available here:

The Nazi War Criminals Who Escaped

I just finished reading, “Hunting Evil: The Nazi War Criminals Who Escaped and the Quest to Bring Them to Justice,” by Guy Walters. It’s an easily read book about Nazi criminals who escaped after World War II. The pursuit and the personalities of both the Nazis and the Nazi hunters, makes for an interesting book. There are unpleasant details about atrocities done to Holocaust victims, that I didn’t want to know but because I write novels about that era, I need to know what went on. My stories don’t delve deep into the atrocities, just that there were atrocities. Writing stories is my way of interpreting history. Whether I like it or not. And whether I understand it or not because honestly, the Holocaust is something that I will never understand.

Nazi Germany… a Mother’s Love Transcends Even the Most Horrific Circumstances

During war, people commit crimes against humanity. Some of the crimes are so inhumane, investigators spend their lives tracking down the criminals so that they can bring them to justice. This was particularly the case after World War II and the hunt to trace Nazi war criminals and punish them for their crimes. Every war has its share of men using assault as a weapon. Young men who would never commit such crimes before the war, or after, sometimes become someone else when they’re sleep-deprived, given methamphetamines and preached hate to. Tell that to the judge, jury and executioner. What about a child born of that assault? And the mother? Can she love this child? Can the child flourish? Maria Kostenski was a Polish Jew. A peasant girl. Here is her story…
