Beyond Hitler's Grasp: The Heroic Rescue of Bulgaria's Jews
As the world moved toward World War II, King Boris III of Bulgaria strove to stay neutral. But by the time war broke out in Europe, Bulgaria found itself unwittingly aligned with Germany, and was forced to follow all Nazi dictates, including the deportation and execution of all 50,000 of its Jews.
Beyond Hitler's Grasp is the dramatic true account of the Bulgarian conspiracy to outwit the Germans -- and keep every one of Bulgaria's Jews from ever being deported. This monumental nonfiction work, now available in trade paperback, actually reads like an international thriller, involving beautiful spies, the Church, a secret mole, and a compassionate king committed to his countrymen.
