Book review of Escape to Live by S.L. Berg ISBN 10: 0-9796994-7-9
Triad Publishing Group

The Feldmans owned successful department stores in Berlin in the 1930's. The Feldmans had it all - love, respect, success, money...Marcus Feldman worked with his father, and he happens to fall in love with a young lady, Gretchen, who is a sales clerk at their store. The atmosphere in Germany is changing...The Feldmans are Jewish, and with the new Reich there was no religious tolerance...Marcus takes over the business when his father dies suddenly, and he sees first hand the government's involvement to harm the Jewish businesses and the race.
Marcus decides it is time to leave Germany - He has a good friend in the German army, and Marcus devises an escape plot for his mother, fiancee, and himself. Marcus is to impersonate a German soldier - his mother leaves for Poland, his now wife leaves for Liverpool, and Marcus must pretend to be a soldier until there is an opportunity to escape and rendevous with his family. But plans don't work out...Marcus is a POW in Siberia,
and Gretchen falls in love with a nice Jewish Englishman who has befriended her and her baby.
After Marcus is released, he hears that his wife has married, and he falls in love with a Russian girl.
After the war, many Jews immigrated to Palestine to form a nation where they would be free to be themselves. Marcus and his family go, as do Gretchen and her husband, Steve Goldman - each family is highly successful. It is a matter of time that the two families meet - and they understand circumstances, and end up becoming close...
Escape to Live is a story of triumph of life, even in the direst of circumstances, love even through great separations, and determination of a people to come together.
It is a beautifully written book that shows the horror of war, and the beauty of stories of love and faithfulness...
