Song In A Nazi Night
(formerly Black Spider Over Tiegenhof)

"Suddenly Chris dropped his ice cream code. It splashed on the cobblestones at his feet. His eyes widened in terror at the six swinging bodies swirling in the wind, ropes around their necks, hanging between the bank and the town hall. His young brain couldn't put it together. Herr Hitler would never allow this."

At first, Mennonites Esther and Gerhard Claassen, as well as sons Chris and Hermann (in the Hitler Youth) are hopeful about the "New Germany." Because Hitler's cause seems noble, they and other German Mennonites have allowed their traditional commitment to peace to weaken.

But soon cold fear clutches Esther Claassen's heart. She has already lost one son in a drowning. Now the swastika, the "Black Spider" over Tiegenhof, with its awful powers, threatens her family.

As the evil mounts, Doctor Rosenbaum asks the Claassens to shelter his Jewish daughter Ruth in their farm community. But a betrayal within the household spells horror for Ruth.

Will Ruth survive? Will any of the Claassens survive as World War II unfolds, as the Black Spider devours their way of life, as death, torment, and exile threaten everything they hold dear?

And can they piece together enough of their tattered faith to find guidance through the Nazi night?
