The Lion and the Lamb, written by Charles Causey, tells the very different stories of two people who survived the Nazi horrors of the Holocaust. That is where their similarities end. Albert Speer was Hitler’s Minister of Armaments and War Production as well as his friend, at least at first. He yielded a great deal of power and many died because of that. Corrie ten Boom was a Christian whose father was a watchmaker in Holland. He was a good man and taught his children to respect and love . By 1940 the family saw what was happening to the Jewish population and at great personal risk, they began to help the Jews. Corrie became a leader of a resistance group.
Their stories are told in their own voices and the reader gets to know them quite well. Speer and Corrie change as a result of their experiences, each in their own way. Their choices determine their future.
This is a powerful, deeply emotional and well written book. It provides an in-depth look into two very different real people and what they chose to do with their circumstances. Highly recommended.
