In the twenty-first century, Germany's Third Reich continues to thrive after its victory in World War II-keeping most of Europe and North America under its heel.

But within the heart of the Nazi regime, a secret lives. Under a perfect Aryan facade, Jews survive-living their lives, raising their families, and trying to avoid discovery.

Baker & Taylor
In a novel of alternative history, Germany has won World War II, and in the twenty-first century rules most of Europe and North America, but beneath an Aryan facade, Jews survive within the Nazi regime, hoping not to be detected.

Blackwell North Amer
Heinrich Gimpel is a respected officer with the Oberkommando Wehrmachts office in Berlin. His wife is a common hausfrau, raising his three precious daughters the same way he was raised - to be loyal, unquestioning citizens of the Third Reich, obedient to the will of the Fuhrer.
But Heinrich Gimpel has a secret. He is not, in fact, a member of the Master Race. He has been living a lie to protect his true identity as a Jew - and he's not alone. Throughout Berlin, Jews survive in secrecy... doing their jobs, caring for their families, maintaining the facade of perfect Aryans, and praying they will not be discovered.
But a change is coming. And soon they will be forced to choose between safety and freedom.

A decent alt-history look at the plight of Jews in a contemporary Nazi regime. Much more hopeful than Joe Steele.

Another Nazi Germany won World War II. The twist is that they given USSR glasnost with Gorbachev & Yeltsin analogues. Shuddered if author made sequel with a Putin analogue though doing a Trump playbook of make Germany great again.
