Quick Overview

The electrifying story of an
Adventist family who dared to practice
their faith in Hitler’s Germany

They saw God work miracle after miracle to save them from certain disaster. As thousands around them fell victim to the horrors of war, they were borne up on angels’ wings—sometimes quite literally. This is the true story of one family who chose to be faithful whatever the cost, and found refuge in the shadow of the Almighty.

From the Back Cover . . .

The lieutenant’s face turned beet-red. "You must be mad, private!" he bellowed. "This is the German Army! This battalion’s going to war, and you want Saturday off?" Under his breath he spat out, "It’s just my luck to be saddled with a religious nut!"

Franz Hasel, a 40-year-old pacifist, was drafted and assigned to Pioneer Company 699, Hitler’s elite troops who built bridges at the front lines. His religious scruples did not endear him to his superiors. Sarcastically dubbed "carrot eater" and "Bible reader, " he finally gained the respect of his unit.

Just before he was sent deep into Russia—where all but seven of his 1,200-man unit would die— he secretly discarded his gun, fearing that, as the company sharpshooter, he might be tempted to kill. In Russia he faced a new problem: how to warn the local Jews before the SS got to them.

Meanwhile, back at home, Franz’s wife, Helene, and their four children were fighting their own battles. Pressured to join the Nazi Party, she announced, "I belong to the party of Jesus Christ."

"Tomorrow night your children will be taken from you unless you join the party," Herr Doering screamed. And she had another secret. One day the Gestapo knocked on her door. "Are you hiding a Jew" they demanded. Their chances of survival? Dim. Their only ally? God.

In a few short years they lived several lifetimes of danger. As thousands around them fell victim to the horrors of war, they were borne up on angels’ wings—sometimes quite literally. This is the true, soul-soaring story of one desperate family who chose to be faithful whatever the cost, and found refuge in the shadow of the Almighty.

A Thousand Shall Fall

When 40 year old Pastor Hasel is drafted into the German Army in World War II into the engineering battalion he carnes a wooden gun and puts it in his pocket and throws away his gun into the river. His family , a wife and three children are left behind. The war will be hell for all of them. Mrs.Hasel has another Baby and the city families are sent into the country for their own safety. Mrs. Hasel and her 4 children spend the night in winter in a freezing shed. The next day the town mayor finds an older couple who will take Mrs. Hasel and her 4 children. Mrs. Hasel and her older children clean the couples house and do their farm work. The Hasel's see people dying all around them, but none of them are hurt. I give away most books after I read them but this book I keep a permanent copy of. This book is an outstanding example of how God cares for his people.
