Laurin Haupt was born and grew up in Germany, close to her grandparents. Her mother married an American soldier and they moved to the United States when Laurin was thirteen years old. Laurin heard the stories of the war from her Aunt who wanted the world to know of the heroism of Simon Johann Haupt. Laurin lives in Florida with her husband and is planning on more stories about this tragic time in Germany.

“History books don’t often talk about the spirit of the unknown hero, and they remain unrecognized shadows in our past unless we talk about them and make them known.”

— Simon Johann Haupt

A Miracle at dachau

Tell us a little about yourself. Where you were born, grew up.

I am 61 years old, born and raised in Augsburg, Germany in the beautiful state of Bavaria.

When did you first decide to write the book?

I decided the write the book when my Aunt Lisa told me the story about my grandfather, Simon Johann Haupt. It took me awhile to find the right words to tell this important part of history many have never heard.

What are your goals for the book?

My goals are for a copy of this book to be available in every store and library so people can learn about the heroism of ordinary Germans who fought against Hitler and the Nazis.

Who would you like to see read the book?

This is an incredible yet little known story. I think it is important for everyone to read this and understand the ordeal the many good Germans went through under Hitler.

Do you have plans for another book?

Yes, a sequel that tells the story of the scores of people my grandfather and his friend the German policeman saved during the reign of the Nazis.

What books are you reading now?

The Alchemist

Anything else you’d like to share with your readers?

Only that I am thankful to anyone who reads or listens to my story, this honors the prisoners and their sacrifice in the cause of righteousness.
