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.

Was Hitler’s Doctor Jewish? How Ironic That Would Be…

Chimney FireAdolf Hitler had a doctor who was a notorious quack. He was a certified doctor who either got carried away with his power or was trying to kill him. He had Hitler on all kinds of weird concoctions. There are a lot of attributes this doctor had but the first thing that struck me as ironic is that there are reports that the doctor’s family was Jewish. So I thought I’d look into it. Hitler’s doctor’s name was Theodor Gilbert Morell.

New Hot Snow CoverI guess I should not be surprised that the first thing I found was a forum where posters were arguing about whether or not Morell was Jewish. One poster said that Hitler was the greatest man that ever lived. I stay away from people like that. You can say a lot of things about Hitler… great is not one of them. But scrolling through the various posts, people arguing back and forth about Theodor Morell, it sounds like there might be a conspiracy that Morell was trying to poison Hitler.

Hitler’s Russian Colony

Chimney FireWe’ve all been taught about WWII and most everyone agrees that Hitler was a maniac. I’m many decades into adulthood and I’m just now learning the extent of his grotesque ideas. He wanted huge reductions of the Polish, West Ukrainian, Belorussian and Czech populations. He wanted to “eliminate” up to forty-five million people. And of those who were left after the elimination, Hitler thought that if he could enslave or integrate them, he could create a well-ordered colony, bringing Germany superpower status and solving his “British problem.” The Soviet Union was a German ally but Hitler was not content with that. His sights were set on making a colony and subjugating them instead, using his new gigantic territory as power against Great Britain. Imagine in the early 1940’s, Hitler’s architects working late into the night fantasizing about this great German colony to the east.

Hitler… a Great Doctor? Physician Heal Thy Self

KINDLE COVER Hot Snow Cover

I did a lot of reading and research lately because I wanted to write a mystery-suspense series about an American who discovered his father was a Nazi. One of the things I read that surprised me was that many Germans were beginning to see Adolph Hitler as the “Great Doctor.” Are you kidding me? Where in the world did they come up with that one? He was no physician. What… did they think that his idea to enslave and eliminate millions of people would heal their country? The man was a fool and had a fool (or an enemy) for a doctor. Hitler’s doctor was giving him a concoction of belladonna laced with strychnine, one of the reasons he was obviously losing his mind. And they still called Hitler the “Great Doctor.” Go figure. Suellen Ocean is the author of The Steinberg Conspiracy Series. Available here:

Was Hitler Close With the German People?

The answer is no. Hitler was not close with the German people but he made it look like he was with propaganda photos. Hitler liked to pose with picturesque peasants and schoolchildren but it was not a genuine reflection of who he was. He didn’t particularly like children. However, perhaps propaganda photos do not lie when Hitler is shown schmoozing with his officers. He was quite pleased with the destruction he wrought on the world.

World War II… What Was the French Underground?

It wasn’t easy for the French when the Nazis rolled into Paris but thanks to the rebelliousness of the French Resistance movement, also known as the French Underground, Paris was eventually liberated. The world owes great respect to the strong fighting spirits of both French men and women who laid explosives on the rail lines to thwart the Nazis, sent cryptic messages and gave ground support and surveillance to the Allies when they came ashore at Normandy. The members of the French Resistance were able to hide out in the forest while they conspired against the German occupation but when these Resistance fighters worked covert operations in populated areas, they took even greater risks and some paid with their lives. Imagine the fear when they rubbed shoulders with Nazi soldiers. The world would be a different place today if not for the bold actions of the French Resistance.  Suellen Ocean is the author of the World War II inspired novel Chimney Fire. Available here:

World War II War Lords… Did Hitler Smoke?

There were four major warlords of World War II; Churchill, Roosevelt, Stalin and of course… Adolph Hitler. Long before the war broke out, a way of life that advocated living naturally and keeping the body pure was taking shape in Germany. It was especially popular with philosophical Nazis. Hitler neither smoked nor drank alcohol and strongly detested it. When in his company, smokers and drinkers were forbidden to engage in either. The other warlords were smokers. America’s President Roosevelt smoked cigarettes, the Soviet Union’s Stalin smoked cigarettes and Great Britain’s Winston Churchill is famous for chewing on a cigar.  Suellen Ocean is the author of the novel Chimney Fire.
