Speak out for the fate of millions or turn a blind eye? We all have choices. Germany, 1944. Ernst Beck´s new job marks an end to months of unemployment. Working for Erfurt´s most prestigious engineering firm, Topf & Sons, means he can finally make a contribution to the war effort, provide for his beautiful wife, Etta, and make his parents proud. But there is a price. Ernst is assigned to the firm´s smallest team - the Special Ovens Department. Reporting directly to Berlin, his role is to annotate plans for new crematoria that are deliberately designed to burn day and night. Their destination: the concentration camps. Topf´s new client: the SS. As the true nature of his work dawns on him, Ernst has a terrible choice to make: turning a blind eye will keep him and Etta safe, but that´s little comfort if staying silent amounts to collusion in the death of thousands. This bold and uncompromising work of literary fiction shines a light on the complex contradictions of human nature and examines how deeply complicit we can become in the face of fear. 1.
