CATHY A. LEWIS – THE ROAD WE TOOK: FOUR DAYS IN GERMANY 1933

On this episode of Big Blend Radio, Cathy A. Lewis discusses her novel “The Road We Took: Four Days in Germany 1933,” a gut-wrenching debut from a curious daughter who unlocks a time-capsule and inspires readers to “never forget.”  Listen here in the YouTube player or download the podcast on Spreaker, Podbean, or SoundCloud.

 

Debut author Cathy A. Lewis hits the scene with a historical fiction novel that looks into Hitler’s deadly plans nine years before the start of World War II and the Holocaust.

Lewis came up with the idea in 2018, after rediscovering a small, tattered suitcase belonging to her deceased father featuring his daily journal and mementos from his six-week trek in 1933 through Europe with his Boy Scout Troop on their way to the 4th World Scout Jamboree held in Godollo, Hungary.

Inspired by her father’s historical recount and stories shared with her during her youth, “The Road We Took: Four Days in Germany 1933” is the epic tale of an American Boy Scout who discovers by coincidence four desperate Jewish citizens attempting to escape Nazi Germany. 

Fascinating characters come together in a narrative of extreme courage, budding adolescent love, and their fight for survival in this gripping novel.

Life in Germany would never be the same as Hitler and the Nazis advanced their propaganda campaign to systematically murder the Jewish population and anyone that does not fit the Aryan ideals. And this was only the beginning.
