Overview

Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge until these calamities be overpast. (Psalm 57:1) Anita Dittman was just a little girl when the winds of Nazism and Hitler's coming Holocaust began to blow through Germany. Raised by her Jewish mother, she came to believe that Jesus was her Messiah at eight years old. By the time she was ten, the war had begun. Suddenly Hella was racing down the street to meet me as I entered our block, panic and fear written all over her face. Her body shook visibly, and her face was contorted because she was about to break into tears. Curious people stared at Hella, but they kept moving, afraid to get involved. I sensed even before she spoke that disaster had struck our home.'Mother's been taken!' she gasped. Trapped in Hitler's Hell is the true account of Holocaust horror but also of God's miraculous mercy on a young girl who spent her teenage years desperately fighting for survival yet learning to trust in the One she had come to love. In this inspirational story Anita tells her tale of miraculously survival during the terror of Hitler's reign when she was becoming a teen.First, her mother was picked up by the Gestapo and sent to a concentration camp—then Anita. God protected her during forced labor in a concentration camp and He made a way for her to escape and be reunited with her mother. This is a story of hope, survival, and God's miracles. Anita Dittman tells her powerful story of overcoming the horrors of Nazi work camps during World War II at groups across the United States in an effort to keep the memory of the Holocaust alive so we won't forget what sort of evil exists in the world. This updated edition includes a special author's note about how the world has changed since the first edition and how we need to continue to be diligent not to forget the atrocities against the Jews lest history repeats itself. Her message is to inspire good men to not sit idly by while dictators take control of governments and impose their will on the people.

Editorial Reviews

Israel Merv Watson

The Trapped in Hitler’s Hell film is brilliantly done and is a gripping personal account of confronting and surviving one of the greatest evil series of attacks that history has recorded. The coordination between the monologue and the film clips was a touch of cinematic expertise seldom seen. There were no special effects to dehumanize the work. The moving recollections were enough to carry the drama right to the heart of the viewer starting with me. I trust the book and film 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!

    I Read it in One Evening

    From the publlisher's description: "Anita Dittman was just a little girl when the winds of Hitler and Nazism began to blow through Germany. Raised by her Jewish mother, she first heard about Jesus when she was just six years old. By the time she was eight, she came to believe that He was her Messiah. By the time she was 10, the war had begun. Trapped in Hitler's Hell is the true account of holocaust horror but also of God's miraculous mercy on a young girl who spent her teen-age years desperately fighting for survival yet learning to trust in the One she had come to love."



    I read this book in one evening because I was that drawn into Anita's story. She doesn't hold back in describing the horrors for Jews in concentration camps, and she also doesn't hold back in telling how God was at work and protected her and her family through the worst of it. While the story reminded me of other accounts of the holocaust such as The Hiding Place, this is different because it is told from the perspective of one who experienced it as a child and teenager rather than as an adult. In Anita's account, the reader is able to see how God reached out to a young Jewish girl through a Christian pastor and neighbor, and how her faith in Jesus as Messiah sustained her through every trial, including being abandoned by her non-Jewish father.



    It's sometimes hard for me to understand how something like the holocaust could have happened but when I read a first person account of the events like this, I see that not only did it happen but it could happen again. Definitely recommended reading.

    An unforgettable story

    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.


    First, it's a cliff-hanging adventure story to rival the finest I've ever read. I found it nearly impossible to put down.


    Second, it's intellectually satisfying for anyone who's fascinated by modern European history, by a world that allowed Hitler to put his demonic plans into motion, and especially by what it must have been like to live through such terrible times.


    Third, it's a love story that captures, in well-chosen and well-told vignettes, a daughter's devotion to her mother.


    Fourth, it's a story of a rock-solid belief in happy endings, a belief that may appear baseless but seems to be its own reward through unimaginable ordeals.


    Finally, and 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 185 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.


    Come to think of it, thanks to her relationship with the Messiah Himself, her story never will end.


    Many thanks to Anita Dittman and her talented memoirist Jan Markell for an unforgettable book!
