A riveting true story that chronicles the spiritual transformation of former Hitler youth leader Ursula Martens

Author Mark Shaw publishes a compelling biography that reveals the powerful story of Ursula Martens and her experiences in Germany during World War II. Written in the spirit of “The Diary of Anne Frank” and beginning where the bestseller “Hitler’s Willing Executioner” leaves off, “Stations Along The Way” (published by Xlibris) is a riveting true story that chronicles the spiritual transformation of former Hitler youth leader Ursula Martens.

This inspiring and eye-opening true-to-life account shares Ursula Martens’ experiences as she was used by Adolf Hitler and Nazis during World War II. It exposes Hitler’s intentions during her formative years, racism, blind devotion, hatred and eventual clarity to the true purpose of Nazism. Consumed with guilt and shame after understanding the gravity of her actions, she travels to America where she encounters prejudice similar to that forced upon the Jews in Nazi Germany. Confused about what lies ahead, she suddenly discovers self-forgiveness in the most unlikely of places—through the love of three Holocaust survivors who teach her about the beauty of God’s grace. This unabridged, unvarnished story reveals a clear perspective to one of the most critical times in world history that serves as an essential tool in learning from the past.

This gripping testimony depicts the story of a young Nazi-molded girl who grew up worshiping the swastika as she believed Hitler to be god. It exposes her transformation from a Hitler youth leader to a guilt-drowned person searching for true spirituality. “Stations Along The Way” is a testament to the metamorphosis that can be achieved through love and self-forgiveness; that shame and remorse can be overcome through the power of the cross.
