After escaping Gestapo, she returns to Germany to invest in young lives

Gain a glimpse into the heart of the Second World War as seen through the eyes of one who lived through it--Yola: Forgive and Remember Nazi Rule ($16.99, paperback, 978-1-61579-327-3) is the dramatic true life story of a survivor whose life was changed from hate and unforgiveness to agape love and a life of service to her former enemies. Veteran author Yolanda Entz weaves a story that begins in Nazi-occupied Germany and chronicles how--by the grace of God--she escaped extermination at the hands of the Gestapo and returned to the land of her former enemies to invest in young lives and found several Christian projects.

"By reading this account of God's faithfulness, I pray that (readers) will increase their own faith or begin to trust God for their lives," the author explains. "I also hope that some person will decide to go into full-time Christian service. I wrote the book with the non-Christian in mind, to get him involved reading about a love story and then getting so interested that he will continue to the challenging part."

A prolific author who has penned 14 other books--one of which is currently in its eighth edition--Entz was recently honored by the German government with an award recognizing her 50 years of volunteer service. While speaking in America, she was continually asked to write a book in English, which she eventually did. She believes her first English-language book will bring her courageous story to a much wider readership, helping those abroad to see how deeply Jesus Christ can change a life.
