The story of Din is an intriguing tale that begins at the beginning of the Second World War and the advent of Hitler's troops - along with the then-Russia allies attacking Poland. The story narrows to a Polish Jewish family that was destined to the horrors of that era that evolves into the story of one of the sons - a young man, Gabe, who would be rounded up and sent to work camps where he faced death and/or torture constantly. After years he would escape with a close friend and together they would seek a new life - by then over 200 family members including Gabe's parents and two of his brothers had been brutally murdered and so there was deep remorse that followed, mixed with the yearnings for revenge. A revenge that seemingly would be impossible to ever taste - after all what if the Nazis won the war - the world would be lost...forever.
Din is a Hebrew term meaning justice - the purpose of DIN members was to seek "justice". These members were supported by the Russian Secret Service - the Russians had been treated as the Jews were, when the Nazis invaded their country and so hate prevailed in their hearts ever as strongly.... It was that hate that drove the members of DIN to seek and find the most cruel and inhuman Nazi leaders and give them the same treatment they had given others.
As spellbinding and intriguing as the adventure of Din is, there is also a love story; a story of devotion and passion, of mistrust and commitment; again based on the true history of what actually happened; a love story that was destined to last...forever.
I must add that this story gives a new view to the Jewish response to the Nazi invasion and gives the listener an eye-opening experience of both the Nazi and Jewish mind during the war. It is an emotional education, an education first in man's inhumanity to man and secondly an unexpected response to that inhumanity.
If you think the nazis never got what they deserved, read this! A book that has a purpose, to educate and inform us
A saying comes to mind."evil wins if good men do nothing"
