"Helena P. Schrader has a wonderful gift for character ... The exploration of these characters as they navigated a dangerous and treacherous environment is wonderful and the author captures their emotions, their fears, and hopes in a way that conveys their humanity brilliantly. Traitors for the Sake of Humanity takes readers from Altdorf to Berlin, to West Prussia, to Crepon, France, to Yulov, and many other places. This is a novel with compelling historical elements and characters who communicate the message that evil does not triumph over the goodness of the human heart. The characters are nuanced, the writing is superb, and the plot is so well written that it forces the reader to keep on turning the pages. This is one of the best books I have read about the Nazi era." Romuald Dzemo for Readers' Favorites
"I was riveted by each character’s story. Your heart and soul hurt for the people who worked so hard to save their brethren, while they wished for their country to become great once again by pulling it out from under the heathenistic brutality that defined Hitler and the Nazis. And even if you are not a WWII aficionado, this gifted historian makes the history coincide with pure excitement as she ties fiction in with nonfiction perfectly....Truly inspiring, these awesome ‘traitors’ keep you on the edge of your seat. Schrader has done it yet again: 5-Stars!" Feathered Quill
