Knowledge that could start a war or end it. Nathan Blum works behind a desk at an intelligence office in Washington DC but he longs to contribute to the war effort in a more meaningful way and he has a particular skill set the U.S. suddenly needs. Nathan is fluent in German and Polish he is Semitic looking and he proved his scrappiness at a young age when he escaped from the Polish ghetto. Now the government wants him to take on the most dangerous assignment of his life: Nathan must sneak into Auschwitz on a mission to find and escape with one man.
