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.
