A Tale of Courage and Resistance in Hitler’s Germany

Immerse yourself in Die Bäckerei, the gripping journey of a reluctant hero who with a compelling array of real historical figures resists political extremism in Nazi Germany.

Don’t miss out on this important and timely must read.


Review -- Ausgezeichnet, Five Stars and Two Thumbs Up!

"Birmingham has given us a thrilling adventure, a timeless coming-of-age story, and a moving testament to the bravery of the everyday men and women who populated the German resistance to Hitler -- all deftly rooted in the history of the period. His message that the demons that tormented Germany then still lurk in the shadows today is gripping."

-- Martin Sauter, Author and Historian, Berlin, Germany

Thoroughly Enjoyable and Informative I was not entirely sure how I would get from the Armenian Genocide to the resistance against Hitler in Berlin during WWII but after the first two dramatic chapters, I was hooked and enjoyed the ride. The characters are vivid and the tension of resistance against Hitler’s oppressive tyranny was gripping. The ending was a bit of a surprise but a fitting way for the hero to say goodbye. Read more
Highly Recommend An engrossing story full of rich and absorbing characters - some who lived and some fictional - but who could know the difference. I found the people compelling, particularly the hero of the story and his friends. The varied settings and locations were beautifully described... I could almost taste the bread as it came out of the ovens! The informative and historical narrative and facts were seamlessly woven into a suspenseful and gripping story. It was quite the page turner. Brilliant! Read more
