Sunset Digital Books launches âForests of the Nightâ, A fiction book on Hitler youth in Australia
Summary: Richard Huckett's Forests of the Night is a fiction book based on historical events in Australia and in Germany during the twelve years of the Third Reich. During that disastrous era the German people were led by Adolf Hitler to sacrifice their own children on his demonic altar of Nazi nationalism. Without doubt, like Erich Neumann, many of the misled youths who survived those traumatic years sustained psychological wounds that marred the rest of their lives.
Brisbane, Australia. 6 May 2009: Richard Huckett, author of Forests of the Night, was raised in a timber and dairying town cleared from the primeval rain forest on the Atherton Tableland west of Cairns in North Queensland. As a toddler, Richard played with aboriginal children who survived the ruthless dispersal of the Mamu speaking clans, owners for eons of the jungle-clad gorges below the immemorial Millaa Millaa and Ellinjaa Falls. Ancestors of his lively piccaninny playmates bequeathed all Australians these fascinating aboriginal names after the Rainbow Serpent of the Dreamtime gouged a precipitous river gorge from The Tableland down to the Coral Sea.
Fiction book, âForests of the Nightâ traces the often horrendous experiences that continue to confront Erich Neumann, a talented teenage Hitler Youth who is cast into Buchenwald Concentration Camp on New Yearâs Eve for 1942 because of a spontaneous act of human decency. An outcast in Germany after the war ended in 1945, a shattered Erich migrates to Australia as a Jennings German carpenter to help construct Canberra, Australiaâs new inland national capital.
Awarded a Queen Scout certificate as a teenager, Richard Huckett was also fascinated by stories related to him by former Hitler Youths who migrated to Australia after the Second World War. Forests of the Night, a fiction book deals not only with the disasters that befell a fictional group of teenagers who lived in Weimar during the Third Reich but also with the historical demise of the Mamu clans who once lived in the rain forest that canopied the North Johnstone River.
Inspired by a mysterious Irish recluse prospecting for gold in the Palmerston rain forest in Far North Queensland, Erich finally finds happiness in drawing Celtic illustrations for Irish school books and in a budding love affair with a nursing Sister at Innisfail District Hospital.
However, in a jungle that once teemed with Mamu speaking aborigines, Erich encounters another efflorescence of evil. Hunted by desperate teenagers, he is forced to draw on all his Hitler Youth training and his Buchenwald organizing skills to survive in this alien, vine-shrouded forest of the night. Will he survive this onslaught?
Forest of the Night, priced at US$22.95, the eBook can be purchased online only at: http://sunset-digital-books.com/ fiction/ hitler-youth/ index.html
