This book features Anita’s full testimony of remarkable faith in the midst of unspeakable circumstances. A reader writes:
“I recently read ‘Trapped in Hitler’s Hell’ and loved it! It was mesmerizing, fascinating, inspirational and God-exalting. A masterpiece of writing!”—Dr. David Reagan, LambLion Ministry
“Trapped in Hitler’s Hell is a first-person account of a young German Jewish girl’s trials, tragedies, and triumphs in the years before, during and after World War II — a wonderful book on so many levels, appealing to every aspect of soul and spirit.
“It’s a cliff-hanging adventure story to rival the finest I’ve ever read. I found it nearly impossible to put down. Most importantly, it’s a story of complete faith in the Lord Jesus Christ — in the childlike trust He wants us all to have as we labor through earthly lives that are plagued by loss. It is, in fact, a story that shows us precisely what it means to live for the Lord — and to take Him at His word when He promises, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’
“My only criticism is that, at just over 200 pages, Trapped in Hitler’s Hell is too short. The author has done a magnificent job of giving readers just enough detail to feed our imaginations, without bogging us down. But as quickly as I raced through its pages, desperate to find out what happened to this daughter and her mother, I was very sad to turn the last page. I did not want this girl’s story to end.
“My thanks to Anita Dittman and her talented biographer, Jan Markell, for an unforgettable, faith-building book! It will put everyone’s trials in perspective.” —Kitty Foth-Regner
“This is a brilliantly done film and an equally gripping personal account of confronting and surviving one of the greatest evils that history has recorded. The coordination between the monologue and the film clips was a touch of cinematic expertise seldom seen. There were no obvious special effects to dehumanize the work. The moving recollections were enough to carry the drama right to the heart of the viewer—me! I trust this dual production of film and book will be like an emotional hypodermic needle for America to awaken to the fact that the present leadership has placed the Western public on the cusp of the whole thing being repeated!!” —Merv Watson, Israel
