Cleveland, OH, USA – October 5, 2020 – The Prussian Memorandum, A Mattie McGary + Winston Churchill 1930s Adventure by Michael McMenamin & Kathleen McMenamin continues the chronicles of Winston Churchill’s goddaughter Mattie McGary as she again exposes evildoing inside the Third Reich. Her latest exploits are set in 1934 where, based on information Churchill gets from a German source, the intrepid Hearst journalist unearths a major political scandal – a conspiracy by US Military Intelligence to help the Nazis persecute German Jews.
Nazi Germany is working on a new law to strip Jews of their citizenship and forbid them to marry Aryans. In 1933, Heinrich Himmler’s SS secretly engages the US Army’s Military Intelligence Division (MID) to research racist laws in thirty American states that prohibit marriage between whites and other races. Known as “The Prussian Memorandum” – an actual historical document-radical SS anti-Semites plan to use these racist American laws as a model for how to treat their Jews.
Aided by a courageous German lawyer, Hanna Raeder, Mattie’s efforts to document the conspiracy take her from Churchill’s country home in England to the corridors of power in Berlin and, with Churchill, to the canals of Amsterdam where his German source is to provide them with conclusive proof of the conspiracy. They are pursued by agents of Himmler’s Gestapo and US MID agents determined to stop them at all costs.
In a chilling climax, Mattie and Hanna are arrested and taken to a Gestapo-run concentration camp where they are charged with crimes against the state-Hanna for treason, Mattie for espionage – and scheduled for show trials the next day before The People’s Court. If convicted, the penalty is death by beheading.
