Here is the astonishing true story of the harrowing experiences of a young German seminarian drafted into Hitler’s dreaded SS at the onset of World War II. Without betraying his Christian ideals, against all odds, and in the face of evil, Geron Goldmann was able to complete his priestly training, be ordained and secretary minister to German Catholic soldiers and innocent civilian victims caught up in the horrors of war. How it all came to pass will astound you.
Fr. Goldmann tells of his own incredible experiences of the trials of war, his many escapes from almost certain death, and the diabolical persecution that he and his fellow Catholic soldiers encountered on account of their faith. What emerges is an extraordinary witness to the workings of Divine Providence and the undying power of love, prayer, faith, and sacrifice.

I enjoyed hearing the experiences of another faithful catholic with struggles and miracles during trials and doubt while continuing to do God's will and listening to God through people even when it would take a miracle to come to fruition. That has helped me to see how God can and does work through us in all circumstances even when we cannot see how God is using us.
this is a riveting story of the power of prayer. I wish I had the courage and fortitude displayed by this man. His example inspires me to do better myself about standing up for the faith when all are opposed to the TRUTH.
It is like listening to a miracle as it happens...
