Broken Oaths Summary

Broken Oaths by Norman Mounter

Heidelberg, 1938. Doctor Sarkany's career is crumbling. The once eminent pathologist begins to lose everything that he holds dear - his reputation, position and pride. But what of his wife, Eva? What of his twin daughters and unborn son? Surely his family are more important than any profession? His vanity and covetousness do not see it that way. He blames his Jewish wife for his downfall. Sarkany's marriage vows matter less to him than his doctor's oath as he begins to desecrate them both with adultery and Nazi ideology. He will do anything to get his career back: bribes, lies, sex, abortions... perhaps the life of his very own flesh and blood. But all is in vain. After fleeing to Hungary, the German invasion of 1944 sees the family incarcerated in the Munkacs Ghetto before being finally crammed into Eichmann's cattle cars destined for Poland. Sarkany has betrayed his family, but can he betray his own people when he arrives outside the crematorium gates of Auschwitz-Birkenau? Dr. Josef Mengele thinks he can. And in Auschwitz, Mengele is King.

About Norman Mounter

Dr. Mounter has three intellectual passions: medicine, history and literature. At forty-nine years of age, he is a full-time Histopathologist working on the Isle of Wight. The opportunity to develop his other interests - history and literature - came about when he was in his early forties. His two sons were no longer young children, and he had managed to secure a permanent consultant position. This led him to write his first novel, 'Bitching Bits of Bone'. Published in 2016 by Austin Macauley, this dark comedic retelling of Chaucer's 'The Canterbury Tales' enabled him to explore aspects of fourteenth century medicine. Five years on, his second novel has permitted him to fully flex his medical muscles and to concentrate his acumen upon arguably one of the darkest places in human history: the pathology laboratory of Dr. Josef Mengele at Auschwitz-Birkenau.
