MASSAPEQUA, N.Y., Jan 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- With the passing of the greatest generation, fewer and fewer of the great WWII heroes and heroines remain. "This sad fact," says author Rich DiSilvio, "is my impetus to keep this unique chapter of history alive. Additionally, I feel it's imperative to reveal facts that have not been told to the broader public, such as those in this novel. It's disturbing how the human will and morals can collapse under dire circumstances." While Rich has treated this subject before in his non-fictional tome, The Winds of Time, and his fictional thriller, Liszt's Dante Symphony, he has now chosen to entangle the horrors of Auschwitz with a gripping and fast-paced tale that includes suspenseful twists and turns, and his trademark wit and humor, thus making My Nazi Nemesis unlike any other WWII novel.
What also sets DiSilvio's novel apart is the shocking fact that the main villain at Auschwitz is not a German, but rather a Jew. While Germans have long suffered the stigma of the Holocaust, the ugly truth was that other ethnic and religious groups aided in the brutal killings, including Jewish kapos, who were just as cruel and wicked, yet have evaded the spotlight, at least until now. Likewise, DiSilvio's protagonist, Jack Goodwin, oozes with character, being clever yet cunning, humorous yet lethal, and philosophical yet flippant. A strong supporting cast help carry the twisting story lines forward, as two strong women take on critical and heroic roles. With gripping scenes in various European and American cities and time shifts from WWII to the 1950s and 60s during the Cold War, My Nazi Nemesis is a tour-de-force that exposes disturbing facts about an endlessly fascinating and misunderstood era, while adding comic relief to a twisting story line that will keep the reader glued to its perplexing pages until its very shocking conclusion.
Rich DiSilvio has written magazine articles, short stories, and books on topics such as history, politics, the fine arts, classical and modern music, and architecture. DiSilvio's books have garnered praise from professors, HISTORY/A+E, and noted biographers for his attention to historical details and his masterful skill for incorporating these elements into a cohesive fictional story line.
