Product Description

Product Description

On April 30, 1945, Adolf Hitler, one of the most notorious mass-murderers in history, retired to his room in his bunker, 25 feet beneath the old Reich Chancery garden. Above him, the Red Army was encircling Berlin as his dream of a thousand-year Aryan empire lay in ruins. Hitler placed a glass cyanide capsule between his teeth and pointed a loaded service pistol at his right temple. Then, smugly believing he had both evaded capture and escaped all accountability for his crimes, he bit down and pulled the trigger. He was wrong!
The Last Way Station begins moments after Hitler’s successful suicide, when the Führer finds himself mysteriously transported to a numbingly cold, solitary holding cell in the afterworld. There, he meets his caseworker, a supernatural being tasked with helping him face, and work through, his sins. The caseworker explains that Hitler will remain in solitary confinement indefinitely, as he prepares his soul for eventual return to the material world. The method, Hitler learns, involves seeking enlightenment through physically embodying his victims and then personally reliving the atrocities committed against them in his name.
This speculative, historical fantasy narrative explores Hitler’s psychology, the psychology of evil and asks, ‘What, if anything, constitutes fitting punishment for the ‘super evil?’'

About the Author

A graduate of Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism, Jon Reisfeld has worked, most of his adult life, as a writer and marketer. He has more than 25 years combined experience in journalism, corporate communications, advertising and marketing. At 23, Jon became the first writer ever to have a story start on the cover of Baltimore Magazine. (It was a piece about teenage suicide.) He later founded and published Housecalls, a Baltimore-based health-and-fitness magazine. In the mid 90s, Jon served as Director of Marketing and Communications for Duron Paints and Wallcoverings. He ran the half-billion dollar regional paint company's 12-person in-house advertising agency for several years before returning to his private marketing consulting practice. Jon's eclectic interests run the gamut from cosmology, chaos theory, technology and sci-fi to social issues, politics, the economy, anthropology, marketing and writing. He began writing fiction in his 40s and enjoys reading, walking, cycling, attending the theatre and "most" new movie openings. His next major fiction project will be a sci-fi trilogy set on earth and spanning "several hundred years" of human history.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Last Way Station: Hitler's Final Journey April 23 2012
By Catharine J. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Wow! A great story. Hitler commits suicide and finds himself in the afterlife. In order to evolve as a human being he has to experience what each and every soul he harmed, directly or indirectly, experienced. A time consuming task as he does not get it. All he can focus on is himself and his desire to go down in history as all powerful. His "caseworker" has infinite patience however and they keep working through it until... read it and find out. If this is what happens after death, its something to really think about. A great book - well written and thought provoking!

4.0 out of 5 stars authorpholloway March 4 2012
By authorpholloway - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I enjoyed this story but it can't be classified as a book. It is more of a short story. But, having said that, this writer is a hell of a writer and I feel that if he had plumped the story up a bit more it could have been a wonderful book. Maybe if he had put in more of the cases instead of just saying Hitler went through many lifetimes as many different Jews, it would have been better. It left me craving more, which I consider a good thing.

I believe this author has more potential than any of the fresh new self-published author I've read so far. For a first "book" it is excellent. Keep going Jon. I will read anything you write. I can't wait to see how you grow as an author.

What if? - Hitler's last days were reviewed by the devil himself?
A graphic, well written, thought provoking novella, holds your attention to the very last word!
Creative insight into such a well-known, despised historical figure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant. July 9 2012
By Olivia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a novella that explores justice in the afterlife. Can someone who is truly evil be redeemed? And if not, is it enough that they burn in hell? Should they be forced to come to grips with who they are and what they have done?

The story begins with Hitler's suicide. After his death he awakens in a holding cell alone. Cold and confused, he wonders if he has been captured by the Russians. Hitler soon meets his caseworker and is told that he must work through his sins to evolve any further and be freed from his present circumstances. The caseworker puts the task in terms that Hitler understands: Arbeit Mach Frei.

But can Hitler come to terms with what he did wrong? How does Hitler himself view his triumphs, defeats, and his life?

This fascinating short story deals with all of the above. The reader is sucked in from page one...and is only released by the surprising ending. I only wish this book had been longer. I never wanted the story to end.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting take... May 31 2012
By Shawn Mullen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
A very interesting take on the potential aftermath of Hitler's April '45 suicide. The book is a quick read and raises interesting ideas about the mindset of one of the 20th century's most infamous mass murderer's as well as what happens to all of us when the light of this mortal coil is snuffed. Being old school, I popped for the actual printed version, and am glad I did. Definitely recommended.
