Unlikely Warrior: A Jewlish Soldier in Hitler’s Army

Unlikely WarriorWritten by Georg Rauch


As a teen in Vienna Georg has no desire to help the Nazis. His Jewish heritage has led his family to hide many Jews in their home. With no way to avoid the draft, Georg is enlisted as a solider in 1943. This is his heartbreaking story. It is told in a first person narrative which will engage readers of all ages. The details bring the reader into the horrors and adventures that Georg endures.
