In the mind-blowing dystopian novel, The Museum of an Extinct Race by Jonathan Hale Rosen, Nazi Germany won the Second World War. After Adolph Hitler, the Fuhrer, decreed the war over, the Nazis continued with their abominable plan of exterminating the Jewish people. Upon his death, Hitler left directions in his will to construct a museum to commemorate the evil corruption of the Jews and how Germany eradicated them. Nearly sixty years after the war ended, Dano Adamik received the honor of the task. However, living in the new world wasn't easy; nobody was safe from the new government, and fear ruled the world. Even Dano's father, an Enforcer especially chosen by the Fuhrer, was not exempt. While overseeing the museum, Dano discovers there is more to the Jews than he learned. Through the eyes of one of his docents, Eva, he realizes the vilified Jews had more in common with him than he realized.
In the explosive and thought-provoking novel, The Museum of an Extinct Race by Jonathan Hale Rosen, the plot takes a horrifying twist on the historical conclusion of World War II. Conceived by the actual historical evidence that Hitler planned to construct the museum, the author created this dramatic tale. Well-written, the story encapsulates the feeling of authenticity, as the author, Mr. Rosen, explores the essence of Hitler's hatred of the Jews. The storyworld frighteningly conveys the realistic concept of a totalitarian government. In contrast, Eva's character does an excellent job of explaining the significance of the Jewish culture and their religious practices. Stunningly portrayed, this phenomenal book will thrill those who love historical fiction set in a dystopian world.
