The Last Way Station: Hitler's Final Journey by Jon Reisfeld

  Hitler hears the last seconds of his life coming quickly.  Suddenly he's in a space that doesn't look familiar.  He has dreams his father may have had some Jewish heritage. Fevered dreams send him back in time to his grandmother's house. It's there he learns his hatred of Jews.  His grandmother blackmails a Jewish family to get money to live on.  She stressed to Hitler that Jews thought they were the Germans betters. Hitler is sent to the ultimate rehabilitation facility. There he must answer for the millions of deaths he caused.  He must work through his sins if he is to be elevated in any way.  His caseworker sees a grossly defective creature and an intensely evil soul when he looks at Hitler.  He takes Hitler through each of his sins from the eyes of the person he murdered. The ending will surprise you.

   A wonderful historical fiction book, written as though we are there through the entire process. I'd like to think it was worse than the book describes for Hitler, but this lets us all dream.  Jon Reisfeld does a brilliant job of making you think you are one place when you are really another. The idea of putting Hitler in the shoes of those he murdered is absolutely amazing. If you enjoy history as much as I do, you will love this book .  You must read this one to truly appreciate it.

I didn't find anything wrong with it.

I gave this one 5 out of 5 books because it's justice in a mild way.
