Untertauchen by Arthur M. James

Untertauchen by Arthur M. James

A Historical Novel

untertauchen. Ger., verb, (1) to dive, plunge; (2) submerge (as a submarine); (3) to disappear, get lost (intentionally), to go underground.

Untertauchen is an historical novel, based on the true story of a German Jewish couple who outlived Hitler’s Thousand-Year Reich. When their summons for “resettlement” arrived in November 1942, they went underground, living a heartbeat away from capture for thirteen months.

The reader will be drawn into the maelstrom of their tortuous existence, from the time of their engagement as the Nazis came to power, until their escape from war-torn Berlin with falsified papers on Christmas Day, 1943.

Principle dates and events–the historical and those in their personal lives–are as they were.
