A bastard, a shame, a national disgrace.

View sample pages HERE

Nazi Germany is ruled by Hitler’s barbaric policies of racial cleansing. Ingrid Marchand’s only sin was to be born black.

Horrifying institutions like Hadamar are where the undesirables – including the mentally and physically disabled and children – are systematically tortured, gassed and executed. It is where Ingrid is humiliated and brutalised and will encounter a depth of hatred the world has never seen before.

On the brink of starvation, can Ingrid survive the horrors of her incarceration and help bring her tormentors to justice?

Hadamar is a gripping tale of survival in a world of hatred, horror and insanity.

Based on true events.

  1. What a great read! While the story makes for interesting and absorbing reading, I find its true value in the way the author left the reader to contemplate and condone what happened at Hadamar. Being of German background myself I appreciate how well the book was researched as I could find many familiarities to my childhood and German customs, as well as places mentioned in the book. I believe it would be a great tool not only for High School English Teachers, but it could lead to discussions in many more subjects.

  2. Such an incredible book. Normally i wouldnt pick it up, but knowing Jason through my Son’s, and an avid reader, i decided to give it a go.
    He has captured the essense of hate, evil, and degregation.
    My heart ached for this girl.
    Truths nobody should endure.

  3. I couldn’t put this book down. Ingrid’s tragic story resonates long after the final page.

  4. 5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling reading The author provides amazing insight into a time in history that should never be forgotten. He captures a very dark part of humanity and broadens our understanding of the far reaching effects that fear and ignorance can have on ordinary people when manipulated by those who abuse positions of power.

  5. I was ‘there’ from the moment I opened Jason Fosters book. Well done. I’ve been a fan of Jasons true crime books. What an amazing story. I feel like my eyes have been opened.

  6. I bought this book for my son – after he read it (over a weekend) – I thought I’d see why he liked it so much. I couldn’t put it down. I thought I was quite knowledgeable on WWII and the Nazi Regime. Apparently not. A valuable book. A terrific read and one that really leaves your brain buzzing. thank you Jason.

  7. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. There is so much that went on during Hitlers rule that most people are not aware of. This book brings some of these horrors to light. I hope the people who read this book realise as I did that there were also a lot of good Germans who suffered from choices made by others. I would recommend this book if you like a good read.

  8. This book is amazing, I read this book in less then 24 hours. It is truly something to behold

  9. This particular story of character strength through oppression is one that must be read

  10. I read this book in time record ! The description of the events and different scenarios was impressive and so well written that made me feel like I was there as an expectator. I enjoyed seeing a female protagonist as the center of a story who saw horrors and atrocities that no child or teenager should never have to witness. Ingrid is the real example of ” what does not kill you make you stronger ” and her fight to survive was truly inspiring. The best was the end that illustrates just how Justice is in real life – neither fair nor forthcoming. This dark period of History should never be forgotten and it was well told by the author and I would love to see this story told through a movie. it is my first book by Jason K.Foster and it won’t be the last. I will definitely be reading his other 3 books. Thank you Jason for sharing through the eyes of this brave protagonist the recollection of one of, or if not, the worst crime against Humanity in our History.

  11. Incredibly well researched and historical account of one of Nazi Germany’s less known atrocities.
